Bought mine in 45-70 and love it. With the midrange sight I can hit cans at 130 yds all day long. Never any problems with Pedersoli and Uberti rifles........By adjusting the powder charge it shoots all weights of bullets just fine. 3/4" groups with 482 gr. point lead bullets at 100 yds...........................thank you.

First time out with my "Down Under". Very disappointed !!!! Couldn't find a Buffalo to shoot. Guess I'll have to return to paper and cans !!! Very pleased with appearance and performance after the first 20 rds. Would recommend this rifle if your looking for a reproduction Sharps----- Mikey (Posted on 10/13/2016)

I purchased the rifle last week. Took the opportunity to shoot the rifle yesterday and it was a pleasure to shoot with modest recoil. The flip up rear sight is not my favorite style for my eyes. I installed the supplied tang sight and hooded front sight and the sight picture is much better. I can not wait to paper the rifle now. The double trigger takes some getting used to but it is very good. I am very pleased with the rifle. (Posted on 9/28/2016)
