Sharps 1863 composite military rifle. (AL3114)
Sharps 1863 composite military rifle. This is an interesting gun in near mint condition. These guns were made post war out of parts left over from the percussion period. The frame and barrels on these guns will not match in serial number. All of the 1863 military rifles fell in the C30,000 - C39,000 range. The stock has both the civil war cartouche and post war cartouche. Most of these found are in excellent condition. These can be confusing as upon first glance it looks like a mint Sharps 1863 musket. Interesting gun and a great looking example!
