This Pedersoli is like-new and as such only has a few very minor handling marks.
The stocks on this Sharps rifle are in great condition with no scratches or chips.
The lock and block are mechanically flawless; with tight lock ups and crisp springs. The block locks up tight with no gaps or wiggle. This rifle also features an o-ring modification, which involved machining the breech to accept a stepped sleeve and o-ring. This allows for a more positive fit of the breech face against the barrel which cuts down on gas leakage and promotes uniform breech pressures for consistent accuracy. Several replacement o-rings and a tube of high pressure grease are include with the rifle; along with an instruction sheet which details the installation process of the o-ring.
The barrel is beautiful inside and out. A tang sight was installed; which allows for some serious accuracy when shooting at longer ranges. This sight is simply screwed-on however, and could easily be removed for reenacting. The bluing is just about perfect and the bore is crisp and shiny. Externally, all the steel hardware is in great shape with good color case hardening.
