This beautiful 1874 Sharps rifle, a custom ordered Old Reliable by the Shiloh Rifle Mfg. Co. of Big Timber, Montana, was sent to us in excellent condition. The rifle, which is stocked in a very attractive fancy walnut, has a tapered 30" #1 heavy octagon-to-round barrel and is chambered for .45 2-4/10 or .45-90 cartridge. Too heavy to be a practical choice for a hunting rifle, this 11.7 pound rifle is an excellent choice for iron silhouettes, buffalo matches, and steel gongs at 400 and 600 yards. The weight is a great advantage when shooting from a rest and it helps to greatly reduce recoil. The rifle is in excellent condition with a few small handling marks on the stock. Their is a small blemish in the finish across the right oblique flat of the barrel at the mid-point of the octagon.

This Sharps rifle is stocked in fancy walnut that has some very nice figure in the buttstock, which continues into the forearm. The buttstock is fitted with a shotgun style hard rubber checkered buttplate to spread the felt recoil over a large area. The rifle has a poured pewter forend cap, case colored receiver, hammer, lever, and triggerplate. Both the forearm and the wrist of the rifle have been checkered to provide the shooter with a secure grip. Our back view shows the straight grip stock and beaver tail style cheek piece with accent line that were all custom designations on the gun. The rifle is in excellent condition with few handling marks. It doe have a small mark on the comb where the tang sight has touched the stock, as well as the noted mark on barrel.

The heavy half octagon barrel is 30" overall length. 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 top flat of the barrel has been marked,Old Reliable and Shiloh Rifle Mfg. Co. with the Calibre 45 over 2 4/10 just ahead of the breech. All of the other factory markings are found on the side of the receiver and the serial number is located on the tang. Chambered for the .45-90 cartridge the barrel was throated for paper patch bullets.

The front sight is a Spirit Level Windgauge sight with a post aperture installed. No other apertures are included with this used rifle. There is no rear slot for a sight on the barrel but the rifle does have a mid-range Vernier tang sight installed. The sight is in very good condition and properly lays back or forward, caming into vertical position.

The 1874 Sharps lock action is smooth and crisp, with a reliable half-cock safety notch positioned just above the firing pin. A fly détente 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, greys, with faint yellow undertones, this big lock is very attractive and retains all of its spectacular color.

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 40 2-4/10, the rifle is made strictly for black powder handloads. You can easily assemble your own cartridges using our inexpensive reloading tools and molds; Track carries everything you will need to load this round. 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.
