      Greetings!

   I would sure like a replica of this! Or, even more interesting: a Sharps' .25 Percussion copy!

Maybe Cimmaron could be talked into getting Uberti to make it in 22 LR? That would be great for PP side matches!

The real money would be made in a reproduction of the .32RF Army model. Chambered in easily available .32 S&W or maybe .32 S&W Long central fire cartridges. The vast market would include not just western action shooters, but also Civil War Re-enactors as well.  I am in for at least two; how about you?

Miroku and Uberti both made replicas of the Sharps 4 barrel and Remington O/U back in the 60s.  I have one of each.  Unfortunately the GCA of '68 stopped the importation of both models.  If you want a replica it's going to have to be made in the USA.

AMEN!!

I have been saying this for years.  Package it with an extra cylinder.

Which would not be a bad thing.  I'd even be willing to pay the higher price that would be expected.
