That rifle looks like it is brand new. There is no wear on the corners of the case colors at all.

Bluing looks good to smile

A fine rifle. I think I can hear it begging for black powder loads with paper patched bullets...

Don't know if I'm ready to try the paper-patched route yet, as I've still plenty to learn about casting GG bullets and loading real black powder. Some day, for sure, though.

Paper patches are easier. Really. They cast easier, they load easier and the load work up is simpler. Really.

gaperry59,it's a better deal than I thought, a Bryan built Shiloh is a better gun and better barrel than pre Bryan. it will shoot great. It is also a looker ,I still think it is a LRE though, best to send Lucinda a note thru the Shiloh site and ask her to research it for you if you are interested in how it came from the factory. good luck.

Not to hijack the thread but since we are on the subject can anyone tell me what sight is on the Saddle Rifle I bought is? I will get a better pic when I get home today. It is case hardened and has a vernier scale on the left side

Could be an MVA midrange - could be anything. Need much better pictures
