SHARPS RIFLES manufactured by I. A. B. (Industria Armi Bresciane), in Marcheno, Italy, are assembled and finished just as they were over 100 years ago.
They are perfect recreations of the original in every respect including stocks made from select European walnut and quality rifling made with precision broaching equipment. All I.A.B. rifles are assembled by hand and finished to the exacting requirements necessary to win approval by the Italian Proof House. This assures all customers a quality firearm which meets stringent Italian requirements for safety and function.
This carbine closely resembles the Confederate "Robinson Sharps" in that it has a lock profile without the provision for the pellet primer mechanism. It features a European walnut buttstock and forearm with a satin finish with a 3" drop and 14" trigger pull. The overall length is 39 1/2" and total weight is 7 3/4 lbs. It is also N/SSA approved.
The 54 caliber blued barrel is 22 1/4" long. It is tapered round 1.225" at breech to 13/16" at muzzle. The button rifling is .006" deep, with a 1-48" twist. The 7 lands measure .540" and 7 grooves measure .552". The front sight is steel stud base and silver blade, rear sight is steel flip-up with elevator to 800 yards. The 5/16x20 nipple uses standard musket caps with a normal loading of 50 grains FFFg black powder and .544 conical bullet.
The single trigger, single barrel band, saddle bar with ring are blued. The lock, receiver and buttplate are beautifully color casehardened.
