Description

Original model 1874 Sharps rifle. Made in Hartford circa 1871 to 73, these predate the naming of the ''model 1874'' which was not so named until after 1874. This is the ''military'' rifle called this by Sharps to interest the U.S military altho never adopted and all were sold to the public, it has a 30'' barrel, fixed blade foresight and adjustable rear sight. These rifles would have been the earliest ''model 74'' on the frontier used for hunting, right at the start of the buffalo market hunting. This rifle has an almost perfect bore and action , good clear address markings to barrel in early 3 line address, some original finish and some sharp case colours in small areas with mainly fading case to the rest , the wood is very nice with some handing and use wear but no damage , overall this is an above average example of a rare early Sharps in a most desirable obsolete calibre. Sale of this item will be face to face , no posting.
