34" heavy round barrel with Ballard Rifle Company spirit-level globe front sight, no provision for a rear sight, and Ballard Rifle Company vernier tang sight with 5” staff. Windage-adjustable Creedmoor-style sight mount on heel of stock. Highly figured, streaky European walnut with 1878 Sharps style flat-point-checkered round forearm with ebony tip, secured with two bushed screws rather than the single key of the 1878 Sharps forearm. Buttstock is nearly identical to the 1877 long range Creedmoor stock with deep S-curved pistol grip. Reproduction Sharps embossed hard rubber buttplate. Color casehardened receiver, lever, lockplate and hammer. Pull: 13 7/8". Weight: 9lbs, 8oz. Appears new & unfired, retaining virtually all of its fine custom finish to both metal & wood with bright blue on the barrel and brilliant case colors elsewhere. Wood is sound with a few light handling & storage nicks & scratches. Hammer is not solid in safety notch, otherwise mechanics are crisp; brilliant shiny bore.
