If I could afford a Sharps in .45-120, I would already have one. That would be the $hit!!!
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

I am not sure if I ever believed it but I was once told by a gunsmith that a 45/70 Sharps could be rechambered to any of the other .45, at least to 45/90
a thought if it could be done.

I know this is old but ran across this photo and remembered the thread.

Dang! Hope I never see one of those running at me.

On a side note...I fially got the sights dialed in. While shooting at 100 yards with open sights I was coming in consistantly to the right by about 6" or 8" I had the elevation set up just right, but was grouping hard to the right.

Well, a few taps with the plastic handle of a screw driver and it's good to go. I just tested her out on some crap in the desert, but I'll bring her back to the range and get it set up at 100 yards again. should be spot on! I love this rifle, even though I have no use for it haha.
