Sharps 1878 Borchardt Military Rifle  Guns > Rifles > Sharps Rifles - Pre-1899
Description: Sharps 1878 Borchardt Military Rifle, this is the later model with 32" round barrel and Barnes rear barrel sights. It is chambered in 45-70 caliber. It will not letter. Bore rates 8 on a 1-10 scale. It is silver throughout with sharp rifling through to the muzzle. There is some small area of light pitting about 1 1/2" past the start of the rifling at the chamber end; it does not affect the accuracy of this gun. I have only shot black powder in it. First and formost while this is in very good condition this is not what I would call collector grade. This is due to previous owner having refinished the stocks. Having said that, he did a nice job of it in an oil finish but they original came with a varnish finish. I can't say for sure,but it appears that possibly the barrel has been reblued as it is in extraordinary state of blue. I'd call it 100%. There is a small area of very light pitting on the upper forward area on the outside of the action on it's left side, not much bigger than 1/8". That is the worst of it. While I can't warranty it, it is a great shooter grade Borchart. It functions perfectly and is as accurate as any modern firearm. While they were original rated bad on their triggers this trigger pull is nice. Please email for additional pics. and any additional questions you may have. Price is firm and no trades, with payment by P.O. money order or certified bank check. Since it is pre 1898 no FFL copy is needed to ship.
