       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  MARCH - APRIL, 2020

 

 

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!

It is a #2 Model in .45-70 with 30" heavy octagon barrel, straight stock and checkered steel shotgun butt plate, full buckhorn rear sight,  standard single trigger, and hand select standard walnut stock-it has nicer figure than the usual standard grade walnut. I had this one built like one of the 31 .45-70 octagon "Lower Sporter" Model 1877s that were all shipped to J.P. Lower of Denver, Colorado in 1880- like the one pictured in the Sharps Photo section (on the home page click the Sharps photos listing on the left side)............. $2976.33  (#7106)

4) No. 3 Sporter, .45-110, 30" heavy octagon barrel, full buckhorn rear sight, traditional checkered steel shotgun butt plate, this one is built like a standard, no-frills heavy sporting/buffalo rifle of the mid to late 1870s period, very similar to the one pictured in the Sharps photo section that was shipped to California in 1878, weighs 11 1/2 lbs...........$2587.65  (10733) SOLD

5) Hartford Sporter,  .50-70, 28" heavy half-octagon barrel, full buckhorn rear sight, (pewter tip and Hartford collar standard on this model), semi-fancy walnut (interesting wood with figure/grain that changes with the light direction), checkered steel shotgun butt plate, brass escutcheons, built to be the perfect 1870s hunting rifle!....................$3226.90  (#10738) SOLD

 THE FOLLOWING PRE-OWNED RIFLES ARE IN STOCK NOW.

1) SHILOH 1874 .45-70 THREE BAND MILITARY RIFLE WITH GREAT OPTIONS, MADE IN BIG TIMBER, MONTANA.  As I have been a Shiloh dealer since the 1990s, I originally sold this special order rifle in 2007. It is still new and unfired! The Military Rifle is no longer cataloged and they rarely show up for sale on the used market. This example was special custom ordered with double set triggers (standard was single), hand selected walnut for dark color and nice grain, AA finish on the wood, polished barrel, polished and fire blued screws with brass escutcheons, patchbox, bone and charcoal pack hardened case colors and fitted with sling (marked “S. Isaac Campbell & Company, England”). A very special Shiloh in unfired condition that is no longer available, complete with inspection tag!..... $3750. SOLD 

2) GORGEOUS SHILOH SHARPS, BIG TIMBER, MONTANA MADE LONG RANGE EXPRESS .45-70 OCTAGON RIFLE, #29XXB, MADE 2006. This rifle has about all the fancy options one could hope for including extra fancy hand select highly figured walnut with AA finish, checkered steel butt plate, brass escutcheons around the screws, pewter forend tip, bone & charcoal pack harden case colors, 34” standard weight octagon barrel, accent line on the cheek piece, double set triggers, Montana Vintage Arms Mid-Range Soule tang sight with matching #113 spirit level globe front sights with inserts. Weighs just under 12 lbs. This rifle would have a new catalog price about a thousand dollars more than my price on this rifle (plus a two year wait). All in near new condition showing little use inside and out. $3450.     SOLD

3) LONG DISCONTINUED SHILOH “GEMMER” HAWKEN STYLE OCTAGON SPORTING RIFLE IN .45 2.4” (.45-90) CALIBER!  This is a Farmingdale, New York built rifle (before the company moved to Montana) probably made in the early 1980s. The Gemmer was named after John Gemmer who purchased the famed Hawken shop in St. Louis in 1864. He was known for converting cartridge rifles (Sharps, Spencer etc.) into “Hawken” stocked sporters with crescent butt stocks with tear drop cheek pieces and forends held to the barrel with twin wedges and wiping rods mounted in thimbles under the barrels. This rifle with 30” barrel weighs just over 10 ˝ pounds. It has a beautiful reddish/brown walnut stock and forearm with nice figure, double set triggers, polished blue barrel, fire blued screws and attractively case colored action. Bore is mint and the action as tight as the day it was made. Aside from a few very light handling marks in the wood and a touch of blue wear on top of the barrel (ahead of the receiver and behind the fancy Hawken-style buckhorn sight) this rifle appears to have seen little or no use. The Gemmer Shiloh has been out of production for a number of years and was always a very expensive model that took a great deal of hand fitting to build. They rarely come up for sale. $3950.   SOLD

4) BROWNING B-78 HIGHWALL SINGLE SHOT .45-70 OCTAGON SPORTING RIFLE, #W57 80XXX, MADE FROM 1973-1982. This was one of the first of the “new” .45-70s to come out in the 1970s when American shooters re-discovered this famed cartridge. Ruger came into the field with its No.1 and No. 3 single shots, and of course, Marlin entered the Market with their revamped lever action chambered in .45-70. Shiloh Sharps was also there, but they catered more to the traditional black powder cartridge crowd. The B-78 in .45-70 has  a heavy steel crescent butt plate, straight butt stock, schnable forend, checkering and  unusual inletted sling swivels (when these are missing they are almost impossible to replace), 24” octagon barrels with open sights that are factory drilled and tapped for scope mounting. There is also a screw in the upper tang portion of the action that can be turned so that cartridges are fully ejected/thrown when the lever is dropped or the screw can be turned to stop cartridges so that they can be manually taken from the receiver . This is an excellent example that has seen very light use. If you look carefully you might find a few very light and shallow handling marks in the sock finish. About all the blue remains. Tight action, light trigger pull, exc. bright bore. Not often seen anymore. $1150.For photos see my other website at www.goodmanguns.com

5) HARRINGTON AND RICHARDSON MODEL 1871 TOP BREAK SINGLE SHOT RIFLE IN SCARCE .38-55 CALIBER. These are no longer manufactured and are getting quite hard to find. Most I’ve seen are in .45-70 caliber. This one has seen little use and retains about all the blue and case hardening on the receiver and steel butt plate. The bore is bright and the muzzle has a recessed target crown. The 28” barrel is fitted with a Williams aperture rear sight with a globe front sight that will take inserts. The checkered butt stock and forearm are excellent. Tight action. $595. For photos see my other website at www.goodmanguns.com
