       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  AUGUST-SEPTEMBER 2019

 

 

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!

3) Montana Roughrider (pistol grip without cheek piece standard), .45-70, 34" heavy octagon barrel, full buckhorn, standard wood hand selected for medium color and heavy dark straight grain, pewter tip, steel shotgun butt plate, brass escutcheons, bone and charcoal pack harden case colors, weighs just under 13 lbs....................$3296.71 (#10550-A) SOLD

4) Hartford Sporter, .45-70, 30" heavy octagon barrel, (pewter tip and Hartford collar standard on this model), semi-buckhorn rear sight, semi-fancy walnut hand selected for dark color and tight grain/burl, traditional steel shotgun butt plate, brass escutcheons.............$3277.78  (#10540-A) SOLD

7) FINALLY, MY FIRST 1877 ORDERED "FOR STOCK" HAS ARRIVED!!! This rifle  was ordered in December of 2013- five (5) years ago! After this one, I have only two more 1877 rifles that I ordered for listing on this site.\ and I have no idea when they might be completed. I hate to think how long it would take if I ordered an 1877 at the present time because Shiloh has a huge back log of 1877s that are already on order since they ban taking orders in 2013. When this rifle and one or two others I have on order are sold, that will probably be it for a long, long time!  Here are the specs:                    1877 #1, .45-70, 30" heavy octagon barrel (comes standard with single trigger, pistol grip and no cheek rest), semi-buckhorn and blade sights, semi-fancy walnut, hand selected for nice grain etc., brass escutcheons, traditional checkered steel shotgun butt plate, weighs right about 11 lbs.

8) FINALLY, MY SECOND 1877 ORDERED "FOR STOCK" HAS ARRIVED!!! This rifle was ordered in December of 2013! 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)

 THE FOLLOWING PRE-OWNED RIFLES ARE IN STOCK NOW.

1) CUSTOMIZED, FACTORY ENGRAVED REMINGTON HEPBURN SINGLE SHOT RIFLE CONVERTED TO MEDIUM HEAVY VARMINT RIFLE IN .219 IMPROVED ZIPPER CALIBER, probably done in the 1930s-1950s when these rifles didn’t seem to hold a lot of value to collectors (lots of converted single shot rifles during this time!). This one is unusual in that the receiver appears to be factory engraved with scrolls and game scenes (rabbit on one side and a fox on the other) with reblued at time of conversion over the engraving, meaning the engraving was on the gun before refinishing/customizing! It was also converted to under-lever breech block opening (like on a Highwall or Sharps), it is fitted with a 24: medium heavy varmint barrel, nicely grained pistol grip stock with cheek piece and accent line, flat bottom varmint forend, sling swivels and topped with a (more modern) 6-24X BSA Platinum scope (here’s the factory info on the scope: “Extremely tight optical and mechanical tolerances give these scopes consistency a nd superb accuracy. Features multi-coated lenses, finger adjustable windage and elevation target turrets, generous eye relief and an adjustable objective that adjusts from 25 yards out to infinity. Completely waterproof, fogproof and shockproof. Comes with a limited lifetime factory warranty.”). Unmarked barrel, I was told by the previous owner that the caliber is .219 Imp. Zipper and that appears correct- it was also the most popular varmint caliber for rifles like this. Tight action, target crowned muzzle, light trigger and all in exc. condition overall. Would cost a fortune to have made today…if you could even find the action (not to mention engraving!) NOTE: three photos- the engraving didn't show up in the first two from light reflection, but you see it in the last photo- same on both sides.  $2450. For photos see my other website at www.goodmanguns.com

2)  SHILOH SHARPS 1874 .45-70 SADDLE RING MILITARY CARBINE, #1XXX. This is an early Farmingdale, New York production carbine. Most of the carbines made by Shiloh were the 1863 percussion models with the cartridge Model 1874s quite scarce and rarely offered for sale now. Shiloh no longer catalogues any military rifles or carbines as they are concentrating on the 1874 and 1877 sporting and target rifles. This example has the optional sling ring/saddle ring as well as having a polished blue 22” barrel. It features the standard Lawrence ladder rear sight with slide and small carbine blade front sight. Overall condition is near new, showing no wear or usage. The tangs on these carbines are factory drilled and tapped for tang sight. Nice, dark walnut with case colored receiver, lock, butt plate, barrel band etc. These make great brush guns. A difficult to locate Shiloh. $2350.  For photos see my other website at www.goodmanguns.com

3) HARRINGTON AND RICHARDSON MODEL 1871 "BUFFALO CLASSIC" .45-70 TOP BREAK SINGLE SHOT RIFLE. This is a discontinued model that is still quite popular. This example has a 32” round barrel fitted with a Williams fully adjustable rear sight matched with a red fiber optic blade front sight for enhanced visibility especially in the hunting field. The checkered forearm and butt stock show some handling marks, but are basically solid and well fitting. There is some nice grain pattern to the stock which is fitted with a case colored butt plate. Stock screws are an attractive brass and the receiver is finished in a dark blue/gray case color pattern. Tight action and excellent bore with target crown. These don't turn up for sale too often.  Lots of fun shooting without paying a fortune! $575. For photos see my other website at www.goodmanguns.com

4) HARRINGTON AND RICHARDSON OFFICERS MODEL TRAPDOOR .45-70 CALIBER SINGLE SHOT RIFLE. These were made the U.S. and whenever I get one of these I always say they are still a great bargain on the reproduction market today…when they can be found. Beautifully reproduced from the original Springfield Officers Model, the H&R has the correct fancy pewter tip, wiping rod, engraved lock, hammer, breech block, trigger guard, barrel band and butt plate. The forend and wrist are sharply checkered, all metal parts except the barrel and barrel band are nicely case colored and the rifle is fitted with a sporting tang sight with blade/bead front sight. In an early 1970s annual issue of Gun Digest, Ken Waters did an article on shooting the various .45-70 rifles that were available at the time and found the H&R Officers Model to be the most accurate!  This one is in near new condition. These don't show up often any more. $1195.  For photos see my other website at www.goodmanguns.com

5) BALLARD RIFLE & CARTRIDGE, CODY, WYOMING MADE  No. 4 FANCY SPORTING RIFLE IN .45-90, #C 8XX, MADE APPROX. 2002. I was one of the first and only dealers for the Ballard Rifles (and later Highwall Rifles) made in Cody, Wyoming. I still shoot two Ballards and one Highwall from that time. These are of the very highest of quality rifles. They advertised them at the time as not being “reproductions” of Ballards, but rather a “continuation” of the superb Ballards made by Marlin until 1891. This example is in like new condition and shows no use at all. It is a straight stocked rifle with shotgun butt. The wood is a fancy grade of fiddleback walnut beautifully fit and finished. The butt plate is checkered steel and case colored to match the deep and rich case color on the receiver and lever. The lever is of the ring type and, in my opinion, better looking than the “S” type lever that was also available (I have a similar No.4 in .45-90 that I ordered with the ring lever like this one.). This rifle sports a 32” heavy octagon barrel with a buckhorn rear sight and fully adjustable for windage globe front sight that will take apertures. It is also fitted with adjustable double set triggers and an Axtell vernier tang sight also adjustable for windage and elevation. The weight of this rifle is right at 12 lbs and would be right at home on the black powder silhouette range, 1000 yard long range or in the hunting fields! These almost never seem to come up for sale any more. This one is in a particularly desirable caliber and configuration! $3850.  For photos see my other website at www.goodmanguns.com
