Default Shooting the Cimarron .50-70 caliber McNelly Sharps Carbine

Cimarron Firearms' McNelly Sharps carbine is a replica of the guns used by Capt Leander McNelly's Texas Ranger Special Force in 1875 to tame the bandits of the Nueces Strip in south Texas. The carbine, built by Armi Sport is a reproduction of the Sharps percussion modeo 1859 carbines that were converted to fire .50-70 Government cartridges in the late 1860s.

The only downside to shooting this little gem is that factory made ammo is wicked expensive.
