Davide Perdersoli & C. had a great many firearms on display at the recent SHOT Show. Among them were the modern reproductions of the 1874 Sharps chambered in .22 LR. The guns have beautiful wood stocks and a a black burnished finish.
Although light when compared to the original 1874, these guns still weigh in at nearly 8 pounds and have a 24″ barrel. The overall length is 41″. The guns are being imported into the US by the Texas-based Italian Firearms Group.
Pedersoli is also making a Varmint Hunter version of this rifle chambered for the .22 Hornet cartridge. The .22 Hornet is a centerfire round with the capability to push lightweight bullets beyond 3,000 fps.
