1874 Sharps Silhouette 45-70 32"
“SHARPS PTD” The name that shooters and collectors all over the world dream about.
To satisfy the request of our customers and shooters, some years ago, we started a project for the production of one of the most famous rifles of the American Civil War era. The range of rifles includes all the most significant versions among the paper cartridge and the metal cartridge models. For all models we have used the best materials and latest techniques, so to ensure a top quality product.
The most important parts are machined from forged metals for maximum durability and strength and the deep rifling is broached and ensures excellent results in long distance shooting.
All the models are drilled and tapped to install the Creedmoor sights and the front tunnel sights with interchangeable inserts, except for the military models.
All the models are equipped with graduated rear sight with sliding plate and are drilled and tapped to mount a Creedmoor sight.
The Silhouette comes with a 32" Octagonal barrel and a pistol grip stock with a flat butt end.
