       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 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) RARE SHILOH OFFERING! THIS IS THE .45-70 CALIBER “HARTFORD MODEL” COMMEMORATIVE RIFLE OF WHICH ONLY 100 WERE MADE. It was introduced to commemorate the new owners of the Shiloh Rifle Manufacturing Company in Big Timber, Montana. These special rifles were serial numbered on a silver banner from B001 to B100 and also have a silver banner on the lock plate embossed “HARTFORD MODEL.” Included with each rifle was a large oval silver belt buckle embossed with “Shiloh Sharps” and a sharps rifle image along with the matching serial number to the rifle it came with. They were first offered in 1993  and sold out quickly. Apparently, there were problems with the silversmith supplying that aspect of this rifle which caused long delays in delivery, with the last of these special rifles being produced in 2000! This rifle is next to the last one with number B099. It is unfired and comes with the matching belt buckle in the original blue velvet box. The rifle also comes with the original check list hang tag, certificate naming the original purchaser and original serial numbered Shiloh cardboard box (no longer used by the company). Each rifle was fitted with highly-figured extra fancy walnut, a special very heavy full nickel-plated crescent butt plate (not offered on any other rifles and unique to this model only), 30” heavy octagon polished barrel, highly polished screws, pewter tip and Hartford Collar, double set triggers and full buckhorn Lawrence ladder rear sight with blade front sight. This is a stunningly beautiful rifle complete with matching serial numbered buckle in pristine, new condition from the original owner who stored this rifle for twenty years! A rare opportunity for the Shiloh Sharps enthusiast! $4850. (for photos go to my antique/collector firearms website www.goodmanguns.com)

2) SHILOH SHARPS, BIG TIMBER, MONTANA CUSTOM FANCY 1874 No. 1 SPORTER IN .40-65 CALIBER. This rifle was delivered in 2010 and features a 30" heavy octagon barrel, pistol grip, cheek piece, double set triggers, extra fancy walnut, checkered steel shotgun butt plate, pewter forend tip, brass escutcheons and fire blued screws. It is fitted with a full standard buckhorn ladder rear sight plus an additional new Shiloh semi-buckhorn rear sight plus an MVA #113 globe with spirit level front sight paired with an MVA Long Range Buffalo Soule tang sight. The barrel has been correctly fitted with blocks for mounting an MVA scope. The rifle weighs just slightly under 12 lbs and is in near new condition inside and out. If ordered from the factory the price for this rifle would be over $4000. I'm pricing this one at  $3450. (for photos go to my antique/collector firearms website www.goodmanguns.com)

3)  EARLY SHILOH SHARPS, FARMINGDALE, NEW YORK MODEL 1863 .54 CALIBER PERCUSSION SADDLE RING CARBINE, #8XX, WITH "WOLF'S HEAD" STAMPING ON THE SIDE OF THE BARREL. Shiloh hasn't catalogued the percussion rifles for a few years now and they are very hard to find. This one has the tiny outlined "wolf's head" on the rear side of the barrel indicating that it was assembled by the original founder of Shiloh Sharps Wolf Droege. This carbine has the optional sling ring and bar along with polished blue barrel. It also has the correct Lawrence ladder rear sight. Overall this one seems to have had very little use and appears about like it did when it left the factory about 40+ years ago. It is tight and perfect inside. It retains all the blue on the barrel  and nipple, as well as all the original early style case colors (early case colors tended to have some gray spotting mixed with the colors) on the action, hammer, breech block, butt plate, lever and barrel band. The walnut stock and forend are an attractive deep reddish brown and overall the wood looks about new. $1895. (for photos go to my antique/collector firearms website www.goodmanguns.com)
