SHARPS 1851 SPORTING RIFLE OCTAGON
Item ID #2082
Bore in the 28" 40 caliber barrel has been used. Lands and grooves are strong, but there is some pitting. It easily spins a cleaning rag. It will rate a six on a one to ten scale. Action is smooth and tight. It works perfectly. Wood to metal fit is excellent. Wood does show use. Markings are complete on the barrel and receiver. As you can see in the pictures, all the numbers match including the patch box and tape cover. You won't find these very often. This Sharps 1851 Sporting Rifle will make a great addition to your Sharps collection.
