  1. To be honest, I haven’t shot it yet. I finally have everything together to start loading for it and need to get some ammo built. I do have an 1859 Sharps carbine which uses a 54 caliber paper cartridge. It is considerably lighter than the 1874 50 caliber. I have been loading 90 grains of powder behind that 490 grain slug, it is a lot of fun to shoot and the recoil is not bad.
  2. After reading this, I had to go weigh my own Sharps. I have a 50-90 with a 30” barrel and it weighs just over 10 pounds. I got that 24 pound figure off the forum site and should have verified it before butting in to this conversation. My bad and I apologize.
  3. On the Shiloh Sharps forum page there was a discussion re: weight. According to the forum “a 34” barrel on a standard rifle will give a weight of 24 pounds”
  4. I know these were built for a Colt SAA w 7 1/2” barrel. Do you know if that Slim Jim will work with a Colt 1860 Army with an 8” barrel? If so, I would take it.
  5. The Saber River was delivered today. I am very happy! Tuolumne Lawman is a good pard!
  6. Midway has 32 S&W brass for sale - 100 pieces for $18 + shipping
  7. Wolfgang I have a spare cylinder for a ‘51 navy. I do not know if it is out of a Pietta or a different manufacturer. $10 ( to cover postage ) if you are interested. Regards, Sgt Duncan
  8. From the looks of that hammer in the last picture it sure looks like it has NOT been converted
  9. Wrangler web site. They have long sleeve, solid red shirts with either snaps or buttons.
