This attractive 1874 C. Sharps rifle by C. Sharps Arms of Big Timer Montana. is in excellent condition. The rifle has a 30" tapered heavy octagon barrel, chambered for the 45-70 (.45 2-1/10") Government cartridge. The shotgun style butt is fitted with checkered steel buttplate and shaped without a cheekpiece. The forend is shaped with a schnabel forend. This 11.8 pound rifle is an excellent choice for shooting iron silhouettes, buffalo matches, and steel gongs at 400 to 600 yards. The weight is a great advantage when shooting from a rest, and it greatly reduces felt recoil.

This Sharps Rifle is stocked in straight grain walnut finished with a satin sheen. The receiver, hammer, lever, buttplate, and triggerplate, are color case hardened. The large checkered steel buttplate will help spread the felt recoil from full loads with cast lead bullets. The stock finish is in excellent condition, with very few tiny handling marks found in the wood or metal. The 30" heavy octagon barrel is finished to a dark blue and has the top flat stamped Old Reliable. The octagon flats of the barrel flare to round, before they enter the action. This classic feature, found on most Bridgeport made Sharps rifles, is called the tulip.

The tang is drilled and tapped for any sight with a 2.26" hole spacing. The factory filler screws are included should you wish to dismount the tang sight. This rifle is fitted with a Davide Pedersoli long range Vernier rear sight with windage, barrel mounted ladder rear sight, and a globe front sight with a post. Our bottom view shows the color case hardened lever. Notice the tiny lug at the front of the lever, which stops the lever while the extractor is seated. Press the lever slightly forward, while open. This over-travel causes the extractor to snap rearward, ejecting the fired cartridge.

The 1874 Sharps lock action is smooth and crisp, with a reliable half-cock safety notch positioned just above the firing pin. A fly detent in the tumbler insures perfect action and fast lock time, when using the set trigger. Correctly color case hardened, in subtle shades of blues, purples, grays, with faint yellow undertones, this big lock is quite attractive.

The double set trigger has double levers allowing you to cock the lock, or set the trigger, in any sequence. When fired from the front trigger alone, trigger release is a normal 2 to 3 pounds. When fired with the rear trigger set, the front trigger release may be adjusted to nearly zero, using the set screw between the triggers. We strongly recommend using these set triggers for dry fire practice, which is perfectly harmless, provided that the hammer is fully down, not at the half-cock safety notch. Dry firing, at a small black dot on a white piece of paper, each evening, is the best way to develop skills, practice follow-through, and to eliminate the tendency to flinch during recoil.

Chambered in the caliber, 45-70 Government or .45 2-1/10". You can easily assemble your own cartridges using our inexpensive reloading tools and molds. 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.
