Additional Information
Best known as a buffalo-hunting gun, the Sharps sporting rifle became known as "Old Reliable" by those who hunted buffalo for their hides. Among those associated with the rifles were Billy Dixon, Buffalo Bill Cody, Bat Masterson and others who used the big single-shot to maximum effect on the seemingly endless herds of buffalo. Reproducing the Sharps at a reasonable price has been a challenge for modern manufacturers because of its sliding breechblock with many angles and corners. It has been accomplished, however, and Taylor's & Co. is proud to offer the colorful, high quality 1874 Sporting Rifle in a variety of barrel lengths and calibers for hunting and target shooting.

Taylor's Sharps models all feature:
• A hand oil-finished walnut stock
• A receiver, breechblock, and trigger plate all machined from a solid piece of steel
• A lock plate and trigger guard contoured to the stock
• A tumbler fly, so the trigger can be sensitized to release softly
• A one-piece tang, pre-drilled with 2-1/4" center-to-center holes for Creedmore Sight placement
• Hardened and polished screws and blued barrel
• An octagonal barrel flared at the receiver
• A front sight dovetailed 3/8" and adjustable for windage
• A 1 in 18" twist with six grooves

This model has a Hartford-style forend, a pewter forend tip, and a double-set trigger.
