Classic REAL Sharps 1877 LONG RANGE

For those with a little pocket change to burn, there is an authentic Sharps Model 1877 Long Range Rifle, (one of 46) with letter for sale at Morphy's Auction house

Go to page 220, Item 1375. It is so tempting, but I can't afford another pick up truck which is about what this represents - though it would hold value much better than another truck. ... NDQ2NjA1NQ

That's really cool. Lots of great stuff there that no one i know can afford! But it's nice to know it still exists instead of slowly deteriorating in the ground somewhere.
The only bullet you fire is the one in the chamber. Make it count.
