       The following list of Shiloh Sharps includes only rifles that are in stock for immediate delivery or have actually gone "active."  This means they are either in production or are scheduled to be in production in the immediate future. The due dates are based on a production time of approximately 2-3 months from the time the paid orders go "active" (activation means the rifles are on the floor being built at the Shiloh factory).  This is approximate, but usually is within a few weeks (before or after) the estimated due date.  With the exception of additional sights, specs on these rifles cannot be changed.  The prices shown are DELIVERED PRICES. They are based on the current 2014 catalogue price plus Federal Excise Tax (charged by Shiloh on all orders),  shipping crates/packing ($46 charged by Shiloh) and $55 - $70 UPS (standard ground delivery fully insured).  Note: If Shiloh raises prices, my price has to go up the same amount. There are NO ADDITIONAL CHARGES.  Remember, Shiloh is currently in a long backorder situation on these orders.  I can also place a custom order for you- any model, caliber, options, etc., and have it in usually about THREE-FOUR months. Also note, I ship ground UPS fully insured.  Shiloh will only ship 2nd. Day Air UPS which costs about  $65+ on average more than I charge to ship ground. This $50-$70 is a savings to the customer. Generally, a $1,000 deposit is required on all custom orders or to reserve one of my rifles already on order.  Balance due when the rifle is ready for shipment.

                                                        NOTE:  MOST  RIFLES  CAN BE ORDERED  AND CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR EXACT SPECIFICATIONS WITH AN APPROX. DELIVERY DATE OF ABOUT JULY-AUGST  2014.

 

A NOTE OF EXPLANATION CONCERNING MY $200 FEE  I am often asked how I set my fees.  Basically, here is the answer.  If you were to place your own order with Shiloh, you'd put down a $250 deposit on each rifle.  About 18 or more months later you would be notified that full payment is required to begin making your rifle (there would also be an excellent possibility of price increases during this time which you would pay).  From there you'd wait another three months or more for your rifle to be completed.  This is where I come to the rescue! I've already put down tens of thousands of dollars in deposits at Shiloh for a multitude of future rifles.  I am constantly paying for rifles to be built- nicely appointed custom rifles of which most shooters would be delighted to take delivery.  I have fronted this time and money for the customer. So, for my $200 fee,  you'll save nearly 2 years of back order, not encounter any future price increases, not pay the full amount of your rifle until it is completed, and be shooting your rifle while other Shiloh customers are playing the waiting game!

ANTIQUE - ORIGINAL SHARPS RIFLES FOR SALE-   FOR PHOTOS GO TO MY ANTIQUE  ARMS WEBSITE AT www.goodmanguns.com

  1. SUPER RARE U.S. GOVERNMENT MILITARY ISSUE SHARPS 1853 SADDLE RING CARBINE ALSO KNOWN AS THE MODEL 1857 MILITARY CARBINE AS THAT IS WHEN THEY WERE ISSUED IN VERY SMALL QUANTITIES FOR WESTERN CAVALRY USE BEFORE THE CIVIL WAR! This is one of the first of these I've seen, they saw very hard use on the frontier and later in the civil war, surviving examples are very rare, these differ from the usual 1853 carbines in that they have the shorter Civil War Carbine style saddle ring bar (as specified by the military) instead of the long bar usually associated with the 1852/53 carbines, the 1857 also has the very early style Lawrence ladder rear sight with short staff and script Lawrence marking on the base, this model also had a small "J" government inspector mark on the bottom of the breech block and a small "T" inspector mark on the left side of the barrel by the breech, this is a truly fine example with fine+ wood that shows normal use/carry wear and exc. wood to metal fit, no cracks and never sanded or messed with- minor dings only, brass patchbox and barrel band, uncleaned gray/brown metal, exc. markings, bore will clean to about exc., fine action, Flayderman's Guide- 9th edition (now several years old) lists these in antique good condition $4500 and antique fine condition at $9500.  I think this one falls easily in between and closer to the higher end, my price $3450.
  2. SHARPS 1878 .45-70 BORCHARDT MILITARY MUSKET, these are getting very hard to find, fine aged blue on barrel and receiver, generally excellent stock and forend with one small hairline crack coming back from the right side of the receiver by the upper tang- about an inch long and is really minor, exc. screws and markings including the "Old Reliable" barrel stamp, original Lawrence rear sight with slide intact, correct cleaning rod (these often missing), sling swivels intact, bore will clean about excellent with good deep rifling, very tight action, safety functions correctly- again, these often don't- small rack number stamped in stock behind upper tang and another tiny one just ahead of the top of the correct checkered steel butt plate, one of the better ones, $2650.
  3.  SHARPS 1874 BRIDGEPORT 30” OCTAGON BARREL SPORTING RIFLE IN .45-70 CALIBER WITH FACTORY LETTER SHOWING THIS RIFLE WAS SHIPPED JUST AS IT NOW IS TO N. CURRY AND COMPANY, SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA ON JULY 13, 1878, this is a standard weight rifle of just under ten pounds weight with double set triggers and open sights, dealer cost was $42, this is a true Sharps factory sporter, not a conversion, serial number is 159XXX. Many of these California shipped guns were used in the extermination of the grizzly bears and some were used along the coast to hunt seals, while others went over the Rocky Mountains for buffalo.  Aged and thinning barrel blue with exc. Sharps markings and the famed “Old Reliable” marking, barrel number under the forend matches the receiver, receiver mostly aged to a smooth gray/brown with traces of case color in the most protected areas, exc. screws, tight wood to metal fit with no chips around the receiver (as usually found), correct shotgun butt stock with matching number checkered steel butt plate, fine Bridgeport style forend that has one shallow sliver out of the forward right side- pretty typical on rifles that were used off of cross sticks or resting across a saddle, fairly bright bore with fine rifling and possibly just a little corrosion ahead or the chamber (might just be leading that will brush out), overall will clean about exc., correct Lawrence ladder rear sight with slide intact and Rocky Mountain blade front sight, set triggers function fine, one of the nicer ones especially for a western shipped rifle, seldom seen or offered these days,  $7950.SOLD
