Howdy Folks, Well, the old garden tractor finally bit the dust, and I need to get a new one. To that end, I offer up my prized C. Sharps Arms Model 1874 Boss Gun with Grade 1 engraving. It's in 45-70 and has a few accessories, including a Quigley Style Leather Gun "Case". (See pictures), and a Deluxe Long Range Sight with windage. I'll also include a desktop business card holder decorated with two cartridges and a cast metal badge with the C. Sharps emblem on it. I'll also send along the Frank Sellers book on Sharps. It's been shot, but not much. I'll be glad to take more pictures if you want. It's got a few very minor scratches on the stock which can be easily fixed if you care, and two on the Schnabel Fore end, see pic, which can be buffed out. Here's a link to C. Sharps Arms, Inc.'s page for it. http://csharpsarms.com/catalog-detail/47/Model-1874-Boss-Gun-Grade-I-Engraving.html . Here's the link to the "case"; http://csharpsarms.com/catalog-detail/135/Quigley-Style-Sharps-Rifle-Case.html , the card holder http://csharpsarms.com/catalog-detail/126/Sharps-Shooters-Business-Card-Holder.html , and the now out of print book http://csharpsarms.com/catalog-detail/76/SHARPS-FIREARMS.html . That's $350 worth of extra stuff. I'll also send along the trunk style case. But, it's been in the garage for a while and is not in 100% shape. That's another $285 value. http://csharpsarms.com/catalog-detail/265/SHARPS-TRUNK-STYLE-CANVAS-AND-LEATHER-HARD-CASES.html . To answer a couple of questions that I've received; a. The barrel measures 29 1/4" from the forcing cone. b. When I ordered this from John Schoffstall, the founder and President, at his shop in Big Timber, I asked him to put the longest No. 1 heavy barrel on it he could but keep the weight under 12 lbs., with the long range sight attached. He did so, just under. When I weighed it with him back then, it was 11lb, 15 oz. That was a few years back, and I don't have a scale capable of weighing it with precision. But I can't imagine it grew in that time. (Unlike me, but we won't go there) c. The only trade I'm interested in is a new or nearly new John Deere X590, or a X570. I will of course, add a bunch of cash to that trade. I am asking $4000, which I think is reasonable considering it cost over $5500 new. But, I will consider other reasonable offers. I am an individual, so your FFL will need to be willing to accept firearms from an individual. I ask that you pay in US Post Office Money Orders. A certified check from a bank will do, but funds will have to clear before I ship out the gun. This is a fine "Buffalo" rifle, and deserves a good home. It's the real deal, not some Italian attempt. Unlike another US manufacturer, C Sharps Arms mill the action from high quality billet steel, rather than cast the parts and mill it down. Send me a PM if you are interested. Include a phone number if you want me to call you. Include your Email if you want more pics. I still work for a living, dagnabit, so I can't check my email more than a couple times a day. Also, since I live out in the backwoods of Tennessee now, my internet connection is bad, so I can't always get onto the forums at night. I do have a phone capable of getting the instant notifications. That works marginally well out here. Finally, I'm a GOFWG and go to bed early. But, I will make every effort to get back to you in a timely manner. If we get serious about a transaction, we'll switch to the phone so that I don't have to chicken peck on this darn confuser.
