Saguaro Sharps Silhouette Perfect .38
- 38-55 with percussion ignition
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.
New model Silhouette was modified , so it's quite different from Saguaro Sharps Sporting:
-Chamber for caliber .38 Saguaro 2,125 . It is a new percussion caliber (parent case 38-55 2,125") , according to the length of used bullets cases can contain 40-45 grs of BP. Smaller amount of BP means less recoil.
-New pistol grip, which improves the stability while shooting from a standing position
-Wide buttstock means less recoil,
-Greater total weight = 5.20 kg.
This rifle needs .38 caliber , thin-walled reusable cases 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. Because of the use of a long bullet , caliber .38 we can get repetitive results at distances up to 700-800m.
Case sealing system used in this model is patented by our company.
To reload the ammunition you need a reloading press and dies 38-55.
The case can hold 40-45 grains of 1,5 Fg BP . Recommended BP : 2Fg or 1,5 Fg Swiss
Standard 6mm - 4 wing caps work perfectly, there is no need to buy expensive 6wing ones.
