Item Description: Translate description
serial #17058, 40 1 7/8", 30" round barrel with a bright excellent bore. This rifle is in the standard mid-range configuration but is chambered for the 1 7/8" case (40-50) and it weighs 9 3/4 lbs. which makes it a short range model. This rifle is completely honest and remains in lovely condition. The barrel retains 95% original blue finish with some scattered light oxidation staining present. The action which is equipped with hard rubber panels retains 90% softened original color case-hardened finish with some scattered light oxidation staining mostly on the right side. The checkered pistolgrip buttstock and schnabel forend rate very good with the forend retaining 95% original finish and the buttstock about 90% with an area of loss on the comb of the stock at the heel which has turned a little darker and has had some light finish added long ago. This is not a major detraction from this otherwise fabulous rifle. The rifle features a checkered hard rubber shotgun buttplate with monogram and a hard rubber grip cap. The rifle is sighted with a windgauge front, Lawrence rear and mid-range Vernier tang mounted peepsight mounted in integral base. A copy of a R.L. Moore letter states that the record for this rifle is blank which is quite common for guns over serial number 17000. Overall a lovely, all original and high condition Sharps Borchardt rifle. (16651-24) {ANTIQUE} [John and Jan Wills Collection]
