ESTATE SALE, FROM MY DAD’S COLLECTION

SHARPS BORCHARDT MODEL OF 1878 BUSINESS RIFLE, FALLING BLOCK DESIGN, 40 CALIBER

Rifle remains in excellent overall condition, the heavy barrel showing light cleaning with areas of blue present. Heavy octagon 40 Caliber barrel chambered for 2 1/2" Shell Case. Barrel length is approx. 26" and overall length is approx. 45 1/2".

Original sights intact, the barrel marked "Old Reliable", Sharps Rifle Co. Bridgeprot, Conn USA. Barrel SN is 18131. The left side above fore stock is stamped “CAL 40 2 ½”.

Receiver retains a silver gray patina with light scattered pin prick pitting, marked Sharps Rifle Co. Bridgeport Conn over SN 18131 and Pat Dec 1876.

Steel serrated butt plate.

Action is smooth with a good bore.

The walnut stocks were in the process of being replaced and fore stock still needs to be finished.

From what I can ascertain there was only around 40 of these "Business Rifles with 40/70 Octagon Barrel" made.

It hasn’t been shot for a few years, but is from the Phoenix area. It did shoot really well the last time we used it.
