Here's a spitting image reproduction of the famed Sharps rifle made famous in the classic western film Quigley Down Under. If you're looking for a long-range rifle that is just as straight shooting and handsome as Matthew's rifle, then look no further. Cimarron's "Rifle Down Under," replica emulates Quigley's movie Sharps in detail! It features a color cased butt plate, receiver, hammer, lever and the attractive Model 1859 patch box, that accompanies a richly blued, 34-inch octagon barrel, all screws and double-set triggers. Highlighting this silver screen lookalike, single-shot side hammer long gun is a handsome checkered walnut stock with its pewter-tipped forearm, just like the film's 1870s-style buffalo gun. A German silver blade front sight and a Lawrence-style folding leaf rear sight top off this exquisite .45-90 caliber rifle, making it a firearm you'll be proud to enter into any "bucket" shoot--no matter how far!
For shooters who like the period-type glass optics, you can add a handsome 19th century-style, blued and brass fitted 32-inch, 6 x 3/4-inch Long Malcolm Scope Sight with Sharps-type, heavy-duty base tube mounts, with an adjustable rear mount to increase your chances for those long-range shots. Some gunsmithing will be necessary, however once fitted you'll have a "Sharps shooting" rifle to be envied!
