Thanks!

More than one Italian maker of Sharps clones. What maker and what configuration. A picture would help.

Several years ago, I picked up a used Pedersoli .45-70 that Cabelas imported at one time. It's pretty fancy and shoots like a Sharps.

Seriously, the Pedersoli Sharps have wonderful barrels and don't give up much regarding performance and accuracy to their more expensive cousins, the C. Sharps and Shiloh Sharps. I'm sure some will howl at that statement, for sure after spending big bucks on theirs... laugh

The sights are aftermarket, not Pedersoli.

That's exactly what I gave for this one a week ago. My uncle died and his daughters wanted to sell his guns to raise some money so I offered them 600.00 for it. Guess it was an ok deal not a great deal or a bad one then.

Thanks for the info....

If it's in good shape, it would probably bring that. I love mine.
