Now, reproduced for today's single shot enthusiast, Sharps' final iconic side-hammer design and Lyman's sights combine to create Lyman's "Model of 1878". Painstakingly crafted to Lyman's specifications, by Pedersoli, this rare model has only been reproduced as an expensive, custom-made gun, until now. Lyman has changed that with a rifle that's packed with features that assure tack-driving performance.
First and foremost, Pedersoli's renowned craftsmanship and premium quality 45-70 barrel work in conjunction with the double set triggers and Lyman's tang and globe sights for a complete accuracy system. The buttstock has the faster mounting and more comfortable, "shotgun-style" butt and the forend is finished with a premium ebony tip. Both carry tasteful, functional checkering patterns. Period style, laser engraving adds additional elegance to the receiver and lockplate. Overall, Lyman's Model of 1878 is a unique and desirable addition to any single shot enthusiast's collection.
