       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 2016 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 DECEMBER 2016-JANUARY- FEBRUARY  2017.

 

 

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!

(For photos go to my other website at www.goodmanguns.com) SOLD

2) RARE SHILOH SHARPS FIND! UNFIRED "HARTFORD COMMEMORATIVE" .45-70 HEAVY OCTAGON RIFLE! Many years ago there was supposed to be 100 of these special rifles made for a sporting good store in Montana, it is thought only about 60 were completed and numbered in a special range. Each had highly finished exhibition grade walnut, silver plated very heavy crescent butt plates (not available on any rifle and only made specifically for these rifles), polished and fire blued screws, a silver banner on the lock plate embossed HARTFORD MODEL and a special silver plate on the upper tang for the serial number- this one is numbered 04X- polished 30" heavy oct. barrel, double set triggers, pewter tip and a decorative silver band on the barrel just ahead of the receiver on the Hartford collar portion, pewter forend tip, sporting tang sight, Lawrence semi-buckhorn ladder rear sigh with blade front sight, COMES WITH THE NEW IN BOX SILVER PLATED HEAVY SHARPS BELT BUCKLE WITH MATCHING SERIAL NUMBER TO THE RIFLE!  All in the original Shiloh cardboard box, a rare and stunning limited production Shiloh that will only increase in value over time, $4350.SOLD

3) HARRINGTON AND RICHARDSON "OFFICERS MODEL" TRAPDOOR .45-70 SPRINGFIELD REPRODUCTION, MADE IN THE 1970S IN THE U.S.A., a fine copy of the rare and valuable Springfield product of the 1870s intended for officers assigned to Western outposts for hunting purposes, checkered, wrist, engraved lock, hammer, barrel band, breech, pewter tip, etc., wiping rod under the barrel, sporting tang sight, checkered stock and forend- all a close copy of the original, In the 1970s, Handloader Magazine did an extensive article on reloading the .45-70, they used one of these in the test along with a bunch of other rifles and this one proved the most accurate, like new condition, the former owner put gold leaf (available at all hobby shops) in the engraving to make it stand out, easily removed with alcohol, these are getting harder and harder to find especially in this condition, still a bargain when you can find one, $1195. (For photos go to my other website at www.goodmanguns.com)

4) NOW DISCONTINUED AND VERY HARD TO FIND THOMPSON CENTER PERCUSSION "PATRIOT" .45 CALIBER PISTOL WITH FANCY WALNUT AND NEW IN ITS ORIGINAL BOX WITH ORIGINAL ACCESSORIES: BULLET MOULD, HANDLES, NIPPLE WRENCH WITH EXTRA NIPPLE, BALL STARTER, PATCHES AND POWDER MEASURE!  Box has the correct end label and is in fine condition with some black marker writing on the inside lid, these were discontinued in 1997 and to find one not only with fancy walnut, but new in the box with accessories is remarkable! I've only seen one or two others with fancy walnut, these are great shooting pistols- I've had one for years that I still shoot, just be sure to realize that the FRONT trigger is the set trigger and the REAR trigger is the "hair" or release trigger (opposite from most double set trigger systems), $575. (For photos go to my other website at www.goodmanguns.com)

THE FOLLOWING RIFLES ARE ON ORDER AND ARE BEING BUILT NOW.  PRICES SHOWN  INCLUDE SHIPPING & INSURANCE.  THIS IS YOUR TOTAL AMOUNT.

 

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

BULL BARREL MODELS: Note, Shiloh makes a run of these every couple of years (sometimes longer).  Shiloh charges $750 additional for bull barrels. There is also an additional charge charged by the factory for half-octagon, pewter tips and polishing the barrel. The six rifles listed are the only ones I'll be getting and when they are gone, it could be three (3!) years before I am able to order more.  My fee is $300 over catalogue price instead of my usual $200. Probably the next batch of bull barrels will reflect price increases over the next several years.
