Taylor's & Co. Chiappa 1874 Sharps Down Under .45-70 Government Single Shot Rifle
Best known as a buffalo-hunting gun, the Sharps Sporting Rifle became known as the "Old Reliable" by those who hunted buffalo for their hides. Among those who relied upon the legendary rifle were Billy Dixon, Buffalo Bill Cody, Bat Masterson and others who used the big single-shot to maximum effect. Unfortunately, reproducing the Sharps at a reasonable price was a challenge for modern manufacturers because of its sliding breechblock and many angles and corners. Until now, that is. Taylor's & Co. is proud to offer this colorful, high-quality reproduction of the famous 1874 Sharp Down Under, complete with all the big-bore power and accuracy that made the original a household name.
