    the pedi '74 silhouette model is good one that's $1200 in .40-65 and $1650 in .45-70, from DGW. same exact gun, just different caliber/cartridge. i've been shooting the .40-65 with ppb's in its greaser chamber and it's far more accurate than i am....

    yes, the pistol grip version. the "creedmoor" name has been slung about too often for various rifles, and too often it's just wrong.

    for the .45-70 cartridge .... the c.sharps appears to be a low price with good value until you realize what's missing - double set triggers and pistol grip, just to name two items i'd consider important for a target rifle, not a hunting gun. ...

    yep, lots to consider, including one's patience at waiting either to spot and nab a good used pedi or shiloh or c-sharps or cpa or whatever ... or waiting 19+ months for that custom shiloh. money and time, time and money ....

    what will be the prime use of the rifle? that will define what accoutrements yer gonna need, and how much more money you'll need to complete the gun ready for shooting. for example, my last pedi sharps is the silhouette in .40-65 and i'll use it...

    to say that one can purchase a shiloh sharps at the cost of a lyman 1877/1878 means nothing until the actual dollar numbers are presented. i suspect the op is talking about a used one, which will command far less that even a used shiloh.

    I usually loaded mine down to .45-70 levels. With Rugers, you may want to check if it was a model where the bolt locks when on safety, or not. I had a .338 WM that didn't, and found when in rough brushy terrain, the bolt could be pulled open...

    there's no question that a robust cartridge in an s/a revolver will get the job done with one shot. if that one shot is good one. i guess more firepower could be added by fanning the hammer. nah, that's all silliness. a d/a just makes more...

    I just take any scrap wood, and rough one out when needed. As we know, files and rasps aren't cheap. The ones I use most cost from $50-70 each. I also use Bogg's for sharpening.

    NOT gonna happen in the USA at my matches or most folks registered matches. No matter what, the Ruger #1 to #3 are NOT a 19th century rifle designs. the ONLY 20th century rifle STYLE allowed at 99.9% of all events is the CPA Stevens 44-1/2.

    Maw, at the grocery store, meat market aisle, with her trusty Remington-Hepburn in one hand and a Jim Bowie in t'other. Pricelessly classic. An era, a lifestyle, and a people long gone and most likely never to return.
