Sharps Saguaro Competition .45Sag 2,4''
- Competition Middle Range -percussion rifle with 45-90 chamber
Saguaro Sharps rifle is a replica of the famous American rifle from 1863.
Mainly it was a centerfire gun, however there were also percussion ones, made on requests. This is what we offer to you gentlemen !
It is the design and the idea of our company , made by great manufacturer Davide Pedersoli .
That is why we are the world's only distributor of this model. The original one is in the private hands in the USA, it is described in the book "Sharps Firearms" by Frank Sellers.
The presented model is a modernized version, it uses cases marked 45 Sag 2,4 - second generation. The rifle has a 2G marking on the lock to distinguish it from older versions.
Cases for this rifle are thin-walled, reusable with sealed flash hole.
Thanks to them it is the superior version of the Sharps rifle models, devoid of defects that occur in other breech-loading rifles.
The lock is 100 % sealed, fire from the percussion cap do NOT blow into shooter's eyes!
It can fire 100 shots one by one and percussion cap bridle remains clean , only flash channel needs to be wiped to get rid of caps residue.
Our Sharps rifle is the most accurate from all breech-loading guns.
Case sealing system used in this model is patented by our company.
This Sharps is a model made for shooting at the longest distances of 1000m +.
It has a long, heavy 34 "barrel, a shotgun stock (reduces the strong recoil of the weapon), a large cheek rest, a pistol grip and checkering on the stock. The trigger is equipped with doubble trigger with adjustable resistance. The frame and hammer are chrome-plated. Tunnel sight with replaceable inserts is already mounted on the rifle. The Sharps has holes for mounting a diopter. Spacing 58mm.
Caliber 45 Saguaro 3.25 is a percussion equivalent of 45-120. We are able to load it with 110-120 grs of Black Powder depending on the granulation and the bullet used. Recommended Black Powder is Swiss 2Fg or 1.5 Fg.
