Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Garret Arms Sharps .54 Caliber -- Single Shot Percussion Rifle / Carbine - Antique

LSB#: 121018RS04

Make: Garrett Arms / Italy

Model: Sharps

Serial Number: 018535

Year of Manufacture: Modern

Caliber: .54

Action Type: Single Shot Drop Bloc Percussion

Markings: The top of the barrel is marked “Black Powder Only / Made in Italy”, and “.54”. The right side of the receiver is marked “Garrett Arms / Norfolk VA. USA”. The top tang has the serial number, and the barrel has Italian proof marks.

Barrel Length: 22”

Sights / Optics: This rifle is mounted with a fixed blade front sight and a ladder rear sight.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stocks are two piece smooth wood. There are numerous small nicks in the surface on both sides of the buttstock, perhaps from storage. There are a few minor scratches and one small gouge behind the lower tang. The forend is mostly smooth. There are no visible cracks or losses. There are bubbles in the finish alongside the barrel, and in a few other places. We cannot tell if this is the way the stock was produced or whether some re-finish was applied. The LOP measures approx. 14” from the trigger to the back of the steel buttplate. The stocks rate in about Very Good overall condition.

Type of Finish: The barrel is blue; everything else is color case hardened.

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is bright and the rifling is sharp and deep. There is no apparent erosion and just some remnants of fouling.

Overall Condition: This carbine retains about 90% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows minor surface erosion on the front lower edge of the receiver, and on the left side. There is some wear and residue at the nipple, and a few small scattered nicks on the finish. The screw heads are sharp and undamaged. The markings are clear. Overall, this carbine rates in about Fine condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We did not fire this carbine.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: This rifle has an excellent reputation from the North South Skirmish Association and is known for being an accurate shooter. This is a faithful reproduction of the Civil War Sharps used by both sides. This one is in great condition and looks beautiful. It could be your introduction into the dark side (black powder) shooting. Use this for all your re-enactments.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This percussion carbine is classified as an antique and can be sold to anyone 18 years of age with valid ID.
