I broke down today and bought this rifle A Sharps Brochardt reproduction in 45-70 built by BRC. 32" half round barrel rifle weights 12 lbs Very nice walnut matching stock and forend. Blued receiver and barrel. Shotgun style butt.
Trigger pull is around 12 ounces. Barrel is a BRC choked 1-18 twist so it should be a very good shooter.
