UBERTI 1874 SHARPS "DOWN UNDER" RIFLE 45-70 34" - $2440.99 (email quote price) (Free S/H on Firearms)
The original Sharps rifle, patented in 1848 by Christian Sharps, was loaded with a linen cartridge and percussion primer. The sturdy action of Sharps rifles made them faster and easier to load than conventional muzzleloaders. In 1859, the U.S. Navy placed the first military order for 900 of the single shot rifles. That same year, John Brown’s raiders carried Sharps carbines at Harper’s Ferry. And when the Civil War began, carbine versions were ordered for the cavalry.
