       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 3-5 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 2021 catalogue price plus Federal Excise Tax (charged by Shiloh on all orders),  shipping crates/packing ($70 charged by Shiloh) and $85-$120 for Oversize UPS (standard ground, fully insured and signature required delivery).  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 SIX  months or so.   Generally, a $1,000 deposit is required on all custom orders or to reserve one of my rifles already on order.  If you want Montana Vintage Arms sights on your order, they need to be paid out at the time of ordering as I buy them from MVA and personally take them to Shiloh for mounting. The balance is due when the rifle is completed and ready for shipment.

                                                        NOTE:  MOST  RIFLES  CAN BE ORDERED  AND CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR EXACT SPECIFICATIONS WITH AN APPROX. DELIVERY DATE OF  MAY-JUNE 2022

 

 

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) SHARPS MODEL 1878 BORCHARDT MILITARY RIFLE, .45-70 CALIBER, EARLY #7XXX, MADE C.1879. This hammerless Sharps model was their last before going out of business in 1881. Hundreds of these military models with full length "musket" stocks were purchased by Schuyler, Hartley & Graham in New York City (huge dealers for all the major firearms manufacturers of the time) In the book ARMING THE WEST by Herbert G. Houze, the original shipping records of SH&G are brought forth for the first time. It is interesting to note that as late as 1886 they were still shipping cases (20 rifles to a case) of 1878 Borchardt military models to mid-west and western  dealers! Unfortunately, serial numbers are not listed for these sales. Because the Borchardt action is extremely strong, many of these were butchered for their actions during the 1930s-1950s when it was popular to make varmint rifles on stout single shot actions like the Sharps Borchardt and Winchester Highwall. It is thought that about 6,900 Borchardt military models were made with many being sold to foreign countries. Very few were ever used for "military purposes" and most went to civilian shooters and sportsmen. This is a very fine example with a tight action and excellent bright bore. The butt stock and long forearm are in excellent condition, not cracked or chipped, and displaying tight wood to metal fit. It also retains the original checkered steel butt plate. The barrel blue is near full coverage, is deep and shows only minor ageing. The rear sight is the original Lawrence ladder sight with elevation slide. The receiver is mostly a mottled, uncleaned brown. The safety functions correctly by engaging behind the trigger when the lever is raised after loading- often these are found not functioning. In all a really handsome Sharps in very fine condition. $2950. FOR PHOTOS GO TO MY OTHER WEBSITE AT www.goodmanguns.com

2) SHILOH SHARPS, MADE IN BIG TIMBER, MONTANA, 1874 SADDLE RING CARBINE IN .45-70 CALIBER, #6XXX, MADE 1980s. This example is in nearly new condition with the exception of a few very small handling marks in the wood. It is the standard military style carbine with 22" barrel and sling ring and bar. The barrel has the "OLD RELIABLE" stamping (like the originals) as well as the early C. Sharps marking. The receiver has the Shiloh, Big Timber, Montana markings. This was before Shiloh and C. Sharps had a parting of the ways (both are still located in Big Timber, MT). Nice straight grain walnut stock with fine color to the wood, case colored receiver, butt plate, hammer, lever etc. Has the correct Lawrence ladder rear sight with slide (like the originals). Shiloh has never made many of this model and they are hard to find now. Interestingly, Shiloh made the carbines just like this one for the movie Dances with Wolves!   $2250.  FOR PHOTOS GO TO MY OTHER WEBSITE AT  www.goodmanguns.com SOLD

3) FIRST OF THESE I'VE SEEN! THOMPSON-CENTER HAWKEN FLINTLOCK IN .45 CALIBER! These totally American made muzzle loaders haven't been made for about ten years or so which is unfortunate as they were/are considered top quality in every way and one of the few muzzle loading arms to be made in the U.S.A. To my knowledge, the flintlock version was only made in .50 caliber, yet here is one in .45! Most T/C Hawken rifles encountered are percussion .50 caliber with few in .45 or .54 and fewer still in flintlock ignition. The .45 caliber is extremely versatile as it can be loaded with a light black powder charge behind a .440" patched round ball for small game or target shooting, or loaded with a heavy charge of powder behind a "Maxi-Ball" (bullet) which will bring the power level up to the .45-90 cartridge. This example is in excellent condition with the exception that it has a few very shallow scratches in the wood - the main scratch comes forward of the patchbox and is visually apparent, but is so shallow it can't really be felt with a finger nail. The action is case colored and the furniture is solid brass. All the barrel blue is intact as is the original adjustable rear sight. The ramrod appears to have a repaired crack/break that would be easy to replace.  Comes with a brass cleaning jag in the patchbox. The wood simply needs a light going over/refinish to look factory new. In all a super rare variation that would be hard or impossible to find another example. $795.  FOR PHOTOS GO TO MY OTHER WEBSITE AT  www.goodmanguns.com
