SHARPS 1859 CAVALRY CARBINE CONVERTED TO 50-70
Item ID #1800
Sharps 1859 Cavalry carbine converted to 45-70 U.S. centerfire for the Indian Wars. Carouches on the stock are correct and easy to see.. Wood is excellent as is the fit to the metal. Very good barrel blue remains as well as a nice amount of case color. The overall condition is clearly and accurately shown in the pictures. Bore in the 22" barrel is shiny with good lands and grooves. It is better than many you will see. I would rate it an easy six on a one to ten scale. Action works perfectly and is tight. Nice piece overall. It will make a great addition to your collection.
