       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 ($69 charged by Shiloh) and $70 - $85 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 FOUR TO SIX  months. Also note, I ship ground UPS fully insured.  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  MAY-JUNE 2021

 

 

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) UNUSUAL AND ATTRACTIVE FULL CUSTOM "GEMMER" STYLE .45-70 SPRINGFIELD TRAPDOOR OCTAGON SPORTER! Obviously a great deal of time and money was spent building this really beautiful custom rifle. A little history: J.P. Gemmer purchased the famed Hawken shop (makers of the famous Plains Rifle prized by the mountain men  and frontiersmen of the fur trade era) in St. Louis, Missouri in 1864. He operated the shop until 1915 and saw the great transition from muzzle loaders to cartridge guns. Gemmer was known to take cartridge guns and re-barrel and re-stock them in the Hawken muzzle loader style. He was especially known for his Spencer conversions as well as Sharps and Trapdoor Springfields. Interestingly, Ballard produced their No.5 Pacific rifle and No. 5 1/2 Montana rifle with the wiping rod under the barrel as  factory production models for the frontier. This rifle uses a Trapdoor action with serial number 460XXX from 1889 (making this rifle an antique and not requiring an FFL for purchase). It is fitted with a blued 28" octagon barrel with Rocky Mountain blade front sight and Sharps style Lawrence full buckhorn ladder rear sight with slide. The striped maple stock shows rich color and is double-keyed or "wedged" to hold the barrel. The stock has a pewter tip and double cleaning rod thimbles to hold the cleaning rod. It also has sling swivel studs- one in the butt stock and one attached to a thimble under the barrel. The lock plate is unmarked and the breech block is marked "U.S. MODEL 1873." The rifle is fitted with double set triggers housed in a Hawken-style flowing trigger guard and the butt stock has a cheek piece plus curved butt plate with toe plate. It also has a long upper tang as found on Hawken rifles which also helps to reinforce and strengthen the wrist. All in near new , unused condition with only a few spots of minor freckling on the barrel. Weighs approx. 10 1/4 lbs. This rifle would cost a fortune to make from scratch! $3450. For photos go to my other website www.goodmanguns.com

2) VERY HIGH QUALITY MEACHAM 1885 HIGHWALL TARGET RIFLE IN .40-70 SS CALIBER WITH 34" HALF OCTAGON BARREL, #W005X. This example sports a high polish blue barrel without a rear sight dovetail and caliber marked on the left flat "40-70 SS." The receiver is nicely case colored and the top receiver ring is marked "MEACHAM HIGHWALL PECK, ID."  The serial number is stamped on the bottom of the receiver by the triggers. Pistol grip stock with checkered steel shotgun butt plate and cheek piece. Nicely figured walnut in stock and forearm. The forearm has the typical Winchester schnable tip with ebony inlay. Long target lever with double set triggers. This rifle is also set up with a long range Soule tang sight with spirit level globe front sight. Overall excellent condition showing only the lightest of wear if you look closely. Weighs right at 12 lbs. This is a superb custom target rifle. (5 photos- note: the case colors on the left side of the receiver are not worn, they came out just less vivid on the rear portion) $3850. For photos go to my other website www.goodmanguns.com

3) WINCHESTER - U. S. REPEATING ARMS 1885 LOWALL SINGLE SHOT .22 LONG RIFLE, 24" HALF OCTAGON BARREL, NEW IN BOX.  These Miroku produced rifles are of very high quality and carry all the Winchester and U. S. Repeating Arms  Co., New Haven, CT U.S.A. stampings on the barrel. The tangs are drilled and tapped for tang sight mounting. This example with the Winchester box is brand new. It has very attractive and nicely grained oil finished dark walnut stock and forend with traditional ebony wedge inlay schnable tip. It also has a blued steel full crescent butt plate. The barrel is fitted with a buckhorn rear sight with a blade/bead front sight and is also factory drilled and tapped for scope mounting. Very crisp and light trigger pull. Box contains all original paperwork etc. These have become very hard to find. $1575.  For photos go to my other website www.goodmanguns.com
