SHARPS MODEL 1852 44 Caliber SPORTING RIFLE RARE
Item ID #1971
Bore in the 26 1/2" barrel has very good lands and grooves along with some pitting. Barrel is pretty big and measures 1 1/16th at the muzzle. It will rate a seven on a one to ten scale. Action is smooth and tight. It works perfectly. Wood to metal fit is very good. Wood looks nice. Notice there is a patch box. The numbers match. All markings are complete and original. These 1852's are much harder to find than the model 1853. I have taken a lot of pictures which clearly and fairly show the condition of tbhis Sharps Sporting Rifle.
