Putting my roller up for sale. Since acquiring my Shiloh sharps I just don't shoot it anymore.
Caliber is 40-70 sharps straight. Badger barrel 30" in length .custom stock and forearm. tang and forearm are glass bedded. The extractor works but is worn and will need to be replaced or repaired. They are available at s&s firearms.

The vernier sight works perfect. Included with the globe sight are the apperatures. Everything to load for this rifle is included. You will get:
5 molds
Saeco #640 dc
Saeco #740 s.c.
Rcbs 40-300 cast dc
Lyman 410663 s.c.
Nei 408 390
.410 sizing die
.40 caliber wad punch
Both 40-65 and 40-70 dies and a taper crimp die
3 expander plugs
60 brass cases, the loaded rounds will be pulled
200 or so 20:1 cast bullets
At one time there was a lever of some kind on the side of the receiver to open the breech. It is no longer there. I just opened the breech with my fingers. Rifle functions great and is accurate. Bore is pristine.
Price is $1100 shipped to c&r or ffl. Date on tang under rear sight is 1901 or 02. Believe it is the #5 receiver or so called smokeless receiver.
Few other things, ammo boxes are not included. Also there is a barrel level in the rear sight slot.I

To be honest I don't know. All that's on the barrel is
40 2 1/2. Can send more pics via text

You can check the twist with a cleaning rod and a piece of tape. Engage a tight brush or patch in the rifling and put a piece of tape on the rod against the muzzle and pull the rod out until the tape makes one revolution, then measure from the muzzle to the tape. That is the twist in inches.
