This beautiful Model 1875 Sharps Sporting Rifle is in excellent condition. Marked OLD RELIABLE on the top flat of the barrel, this rifle was made by C. Sharps Arms Company, Big Timber, Montana, and is so marked. This rifle is chambered for 40-65 WCF cartridge. We have this rifle on display, ready for same day shipment on receipt of your funds, and your favorite dealer's signed FFL copy. We must deliver to a Minnesota resident, or to a licensed dealer in any other state.

Features include the French gray frame, and checkered figured black walnut. The buttstock is fitted with a checkered steel shotgun buttplate, also French gray to match the action. The figured American black walnut stock is well shaped with a slender pistol grip, and forearm with pewter tip. Custom features include checkering on the wrist and forearm. Trigger reach is 13-3/4" and weight is 10.1 pounds.

The .40-65 caliber bore is bright and perfect. The tapered octagon 32" long barrel has a matte blue finish. The top of the barrel is marked OLD RELIABLE. Near the breech the top of the barrel is marked C. SHARPS ARMS CO. INC. followed by CALIBER 40 2-1/10. The mid-range Vernier tang sight, with windage, by C. Sharps, is fitted to the tang. A globe target front sight with spirit level is dovetailed to the barrel. The sight has a cross hair insert installed currently. No additional inserts are included. Note that C. Sharps rifles have the same original dovetail dimensions as the antique Sharps rifles, with a 7/16" dovetail, not the modern 3/8" dovetail found on some replicas.

The rifle is stocked in figured American black walnut finished to a medium brown. The wrist and forearm are neatly and professionally checkered. In near new condition, the wood shows few obvious handling marks in the factory finish. The shotgun style pistol grip buttstock, with wide flat checkered steel buttplate, will help reduce the recoil from this big rifle. An oval cheekpiece with accent line is carved into the buttstock making this rifle comfortable for use by a right hand shooter.

The 1875 Sharps lock action is smooth and crisp and has been neatly finished to a French gray that contrasts the blued barrel and warm brown of the walnut stock. The trigger release is smooth and crisp. The side of the action is marked C. SHARPS ARMS CO. INC. over BIG TIMBER, MONTANA, U.S.A.

Chambered in .40-65 WCF this rifle should be very pleasant to shoot. This rifle will require load development, and fine tuning, for serious target competition. We enjoy casting bullets, hand loading black powder cartridges, and enjoyable afternoons at our local 100, 200, 400, and 600 yard range. If you enjoy shooting, recording results, and creating loads, order this rifle, today. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted. Else if it does not fit you, return it in unfired condition for same-day refund. Postage is your only risk, when you order any one-of-a-kind gun from Track, whether new, used, or antique.

Ready for same day shipment on receipt of your funds, and your Federal Firearms Licensed dealer's signed FFL copy. We must deliver to a Minnesota resident, or to a licensed dealer in any other state.
