NO RESERVE!! Here's a very high quality, beautifully made rendition of the Sharps 1877 single shot rifle. This rifle was manufactured by Axtell Rifle, Co. in Sheridan, Montana. Axtell has been recognized as building some of the very finest Sharps reproductions available anywhere at any price. It should be noted that Axtell has just recently been bought out by the Shiloh Sharps Rifle Co. and that Axtell is no longer producing rifles...but is still making their very high quality sights (as seen on this rifle).
This rifle is known as the "Lower Sporter", however it is a non-cataloged variation with a 28" octagonal heavy barrel. It is chambered for the classic .45-70 Gov't cartridge and features double-set triggers. Weight is 12 pounds, 10-ounces. It is equipped with Axtell/Riflesmith sights...a long range vernier rear with large cup w/ adjustable apertures, and a globe front sight with spirit level. The action is case colored as is the lever and the checkered steel shotgun buttplate. The stocks are high grade walnut with straight grain through the wrist for strength and lots of figure in the butt section for good looks. Overall condition is excellent with light evidence of some use and handling. The rifle retains almost all of the original finish but there are a few small dings and marks in the wood and a couple of fine scratches and marks on the barrel. There is no rust, pitting, cracks or chips. Everything is in perfect working order, both rifle and sights. The bore is excellent...mirror bright with sharp rifling. Comes with the leather pouch to protect the rear sight. A handsome rifle that may be destined to become quite a collectible now that Axtell will no longer be making them. Buyer pays $25.00 shipping.
