An authentic reproduction of the famed "Buffalo Sharps" favored by 19th century hunters who told stories of consistent, clean buffalo kills up to 400, 500 or 600 yards. Early Sharps rifles won so many shooting contests, especially long-range competitions, that sportsmen and the military jumped to acquire them. So well designed, Sharps rifles can still compete in the field with modern arms. Capable of taking all North American big game, these reproductions are the ideal firearm for the hunter, shooter and collector looking for a unique piece that carries the history and romance of the American West.
