       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 AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2018

 

 

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!

 THE FOLLOWING PRE-OWNED RIFLES ARE IN STOCK NOW.

1) VERY LIMITED PRODUCTION AND HARD TO FIND SHILOH SHARPS 1863 .54 CALIBER PERCUSSION THREE BAND MILITARY RIFLE.  This is a Farmingdale, New York production rifle probably made in the late 1970s, serial number in the 1XXX range. Overall excellent plus condition that at worst shows the most minor of handling marks too small to mention. Has with optional case colored patchbox and polished barrel, retains about all the case color even on the butt plate and top of the breech block, exc. deep polished blue on the barrel, correct factory Lawrence ladder rear sight with the slide intact, military style lever catch, beautiful rich reddish-brown walnut stock and full forend, bright sharp bore, military style leather sling and NEI steel mould blocks for the correct “ring-tail” military style bullet. These rarely come up for sale now and Shiloh isn’t making percussion models any more. $2450     For photos see my other website at www.goodmanguns.com

2) CUSTOMIZED, FACTORY ENGRAVED REMINGTON HEPBURN SINGLE SHOT RIFLE CONVERTED TO MEDIUM HEAVY VARMINT RIFLE IN .219 IMPROVED ZIPPER CALIBER, probably done in the 1930s-1950s when these rifles didn’t seem to hold a lot of value to collectors (lots of converted single shot rifles during this time!). This one is unusual in that the receiver appears to be factory engraved with scrolls and game scenes (rabbit on one side and a fox on the other) with reblued at time of conversion over the engraving, meaning the engraving was on the gun before refinishing/customizing! It was also converted to under-lever breech block opening (like on a Highwall or Sharps), it is fitted with a 24: medium heavy varmint barrel, nicely grained pistol grip stock with cheek piece and accent line, flat bottom varmint forend, sling swivels and topped with a (more modern) 6-24X BSA Platinum scope (here’s the factory info on the scope: “Extremely tight optical and mechanical tolerances give these scopes consistency a nd superb accuracy. Features multi-coated lenses, finger adjustable windage and elevation target turrets, generous eye relief and an adjustable objective that adjusts from 25 yards out to infinity. Completely waterproof, fogproof and shockproof. Comes with a limited lifetime factory warranty.”). Unmarked barrel, I was told by the previous owner that the caliber is .219 Imp. Zipper and that appears correct- it was also the most popular varmint caliber for rifles like this. Tight action, target crowned muzzle, light trigger and all in exc. condition overall. Would cost a fortune to have made today…if you could even find the action (not to mention engraving!) NOTE: three photos- the engraving didn't show up in the first two from light reflection, but you see it in the last photo- same on both sides.  $2450. For photos see my other website at www.goodmanguns.com

BUSINESS MODELS AND ROUND BARREL RIFLES…FINALLY!  (IT HAS BEEN YEARS SINCE THESE WERE BUILT AND WILL BE YEARS AGAIN BEFORE SHILOH WILL BUILD MORE!)

The original Sharps Company of Bridgeport, CT offered the Business Model in the mid to late 1870s to fill the demand for a heavy duty working man’s Sharps do-it-all serious big game hunting rifle intended for use on everything from antelope and deer to elk and buffalo and grizzly bear (not to mention personal protection from the two-legged species). Some early round barrel sporting rifles were built like the later Business Model, but often with 30" barrels, patch boxes and pewter tips- frequently in .50-70 caliber. Round barrel sporters were always offered in the 1870s, but fewer were made than octagon barrel and half-octagon barrel sporters.
