Replica of the famous rifle Sharps cal. 45/70 widely used for hunting bison.
Thanks to its exceptional precision and wide variety of calibres, the Sharps was without a doubt one of the most widely used rifles during the American Civil War.
The US government bought 80. 512 rifles and 9,141 rifles during the conflict. After the war, many Sharps percussion rifles were converted into civilian models with metal ammunition loaded by the bolt. The most famous model is certainly the 'Sporting 1874', also known as 'Old Reliable Rifle Buffalo', linked to famous names such as Billy Dixon, 'Buffalo Bill' Cody, 'Bat' Matterson and many more .
Chiappa Firearms, under the brand name Armi Sport, has faithfully reproduced the Sharps rifles for a long time. Over the years, it has been created a very rich range of Sharps rifles, which has for common denominator a great reliability of operation and a perfect interchangeability with the original parts.
