New Old Sharps
« on: July 16, 2019, 07:04:24 pm »
I picked up a nice conversion at the Cody gun show. It is a 17 pounder, with a L.N. Mogg scope in 45-110 caliber. The bore is excellent and there is plenty of color/case still on the receiver and lever. I hope to be shooting it soon...

I never considered myself a failure...I started out at the bottom and happen to like it here!

Gents, I had a chance to meet up with Shrapnel and handle this rifle.  It was a couple of weeks ago and I'm still trembling...

I'm so glad that Shrapnel is willing to take great photos of his guns and post them here so that we can all enjoy them!
