The Sharps new model 1859 rifle was used in the American Civil war by the Union Army and was one of the most famous single shot breech loading rifles used during the war.
The Union Army was mainly issued with single shot muzzle loaders which where easy to maintain and use, the newer single shot breech loaders where reserved and used by a select number of Federal units like the "Berdan's Sharpshooters" and the 21st Ohio Infantry Regiment.
The Sharps 1859 rifle was a .52 calibre breech loader which had a range and rate of fire three times greater than the muzzle loaders.
