I.A.B 1874 Sharps Replia .45-70 Govt.
This auction is for an I.A.B. 1874 Sharps .45-70 Govt. Replica rifle imported by Armsport. This rifle is in excellent condition with a brown 29” heavy octagon barrel (0.975” across the flats) with a Hartford collar and a very nice case color receiver, lever & buttplate. It has a globe style front sight with a post, an adjustable fold down rear sight on the barrel plus a good quality long range tang sight. It is equipped with a double set trigger. The hardwood stock is straight with a few small handling marks and a tiny chip on the underside at the receiver interface (see photos). From the looks of this rifle it has only been fired a few times, it is very tight mechanically and the bore is mint. Twist = 1:20, OAL = ~45 ½”, LOP = 13 ¼” – 14 ¼”, Weight = ~ 8 ½ lbs.

Industria Armi Bresciane (I.A.B.) is located in the heart of Italy's Valtrompia Valley, an area famous for its fine firearms craftsmanship. Known as a world leader in the manufacture of reproduction SHARPS RIFLES, I.A.B. was the first Italian company to reproduce these classics characterized as one of the most popular guns in American history. I.A.B. craftsmen have produced over 49,000 quality SHARPS reproduction firearms since our beginning in 1974. I.A.B. is proud to carry on the SHARPS manufacturing tradition of a quality firearm at an affordable price. I.A.B. SHARPS RIFLES are assembled and finished just as they were over 100 years ago. All I.A.B. rifles are assembled by hand and finished to the exacting requirements necessary to win approval by the Italian Proof House. The SHARPS RIFLE has long been known for its accuracy beginning in the American Civil War and continuing up through the buffalo hunts and long range shooting competitions popular during the late nineteenth century.

PLEASE READ THE PAYMENT & SHIPPING INFORMATION POSTED AT THE END OF THE AUCTION. IT MAY SAVE TIME FOR BOTH OF US.
BEFORE YOU ASK WHAT THE RESERVE IS, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING…
We do not disclose the Reserve on our “RESERVE AUCTIONS” because doing so defeats the purpose of the auction. Disclosing makes it a “Sale”, not an auction, much like a classified listing. Most of the firearms we offer at auction are on consignment with us from one of our clients. Our commitment to our clients is to obtain the highest fair market price possible for their firearms. Thus, we prefer the Reserve Auction and the “HAGGLE” feature offered by Auction Arms. About 50% of our sales are completed via the Haggle. In a Reserve auction if the high bidder does not reach the reserve buy to end the auction the high bidder or the seller may institute what Auction Arms calls a Haggle a one-on-one exchange between buyer and seller to try and come to a mutual agreement on a price. If you are not familiar with the Haggle process, click on Auction Arms “Help & Info” for complete details. For those items that are not on consignment we usually offer a convenient “Buy-It-Now” price.
