Here are some photos of my addiction as asked for. I started a new thread 'cause I new you would never find this if I replied to the welcome thread.214






The 1874 Sharps is my pride and joy. I had it custom made by Shiloh. The 1896 Krag and m1 carbine are at my shop undergoing some repairs.

I have a Long Range Express on order from Shiloh with an up grade in wood and the bone and charcoal case hardening. I am getting mine in .45-70. What calibur is yours and what sights do you have? Also like the Winchester. Can't tell if it is original or a Uberti. NIce firearms.

The Lt Commander was a special run Colt did around 1980 or so. They only made 500 of them. This was the second one I have ever seen and it was for sale so it came home with me. It has never been fired and I have never been able to find much more information. It is not even in the Blue book.

The Shiloh is a #3 sporter in 45-110, it has the interchangeable post globe in the front with a semi buckhorn rear and a mid range vernier on the tang. I placed the order in early 1992 and finally received it in 1995. I drove up to Big Timber Mt when it was in production. It is a great rifle, very accurate even with my own black powder hand loads.

The Winchester is a 1860 Henry. It is a custom reproduction made by pedersoli another special run that was done around 1994. #1 of 1000.

While I'm at it, the Garand is a Lend/Lease return from England. It was picked up on Normandy after the battle was over. It is well used and all original with a very dark bore, but it is just as accurate as can be. I have shot Oranges with it offhand at 100 yards and made orange juice. I have not done a thing to it but clean it and plan to keep it that way.
