Sharps New Model 1859 Rifle by Denix

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.

As this firearm has a mechanism and appearance of before 1870 it can be sold to any persons over the age of 18 years upon receipt of valid ID.

It does not come under the VCR act, so you do not need to be a member of a re-enactment group to purchase this replica. We will contact you for verification of your age and we will require a photo or scan of ID showing your name and age to be emailed to us after placing your order before we can dispatch your order.

The replica Sharps 1859 breech loading rifle has a working action which includes a working opening breech.

Features:

  • Hammer pulls back and cocks.
  • Pull the trigger to fire the hammer.
  • Pull the trigger guard lever down to lower the breech at the top to expose the barrel for easy breech loading.
  • Rear sight pops up but the leaf sight bar does not slide up or down on the sight.
  • Metal plate on the base of the wood butt stock.
  • Metal plate on the side of the butt, on the original this would open but it does not the replica.
