Re: sharps rifle junky

Yes, i have read that review on gunblast! Glad to hear a first hand experience. The old world tang sight take some getting used to but that why i would like to get a more economical round in a sharps rifle. Im not gonna get my proficientcy by just hoping for it. But yes, in the right hands, a sharps rifle is very lethal! The billy dixon story is still amazing. A 1500 yard shot with a 50-90 at the battle of odobe walls, even with todays technology, thats an amazing shot!

With today's technology that shot is rather ho-hum.

Re: sharps rifle junky

Been fascinated by Sharps rifles for some time, but really didn't need one in the calibers that they were made for. However that changed when I seen that Chiappa was making one in 17 HH. So decided to pick one up. Seems to be well made and it is accurate. So far I've only run one box through it and haven't shot anything except paper and 20 oz pop bottles full of water out to 200 yards. Plan on working up loads in the near future as I have everything for that. I ended up putting a long eye relief HI-Lux scope on it. Tried another scope, but the hammer wouldn't allow it. I think if I had to do over I'd get one with sights. May still try to find a gunsmith to put sights on. Not the best picture, but this is what I have.

Awesome! Glad to hear it on the quality and function of the chiappa. Very good gun-porn there!
