Sharps Saguaro Competition .45Sag 2,1'' SHORT
- Competition Middle Range -percussion rifle with 45-70 chamber .30" barrel
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.
This rifle needs .45 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 .45 we can get repetitive results at distances up to 700-800m.
It has a 30 "barrel, a shotgun stock (relieves the strong recoil of the rifle), a large cheek rest, a pistol grip and checkeringl on the stock. It is ecquiped with double barrel with adjustable resistance. The frame and hammer of the rifle are chrome-plated. The tunnel front sight with replaceable inserts is already mounted on the gun.
Sharps has holes for mounting a diopter. Spacing between holes is 58mm.
The caliber 45 Saguaro 2.1 is a percussion equivalent of 45-70. We are able to load 55-70 grs of Black Powder depending on the granulation and the bullet used. The recommended powder granulation is 2Fg or 1.5Fg. We recommend Swiss powder or Złoty Stok.
Case sealing system used in this model is patented by our company.
Standard 6mm - 4 wing caps work perfectly, there is no need to buy expensive 6wing ones.
