If you are a history-buff and like ‘old west’ firearms and collect them, then this should be right up your alley.
Here we have the “real” Tom Selleck “Quigley Down Under” Shiloh Sharps 45/110 Cal. Rifle. Not only am I using a video, but will provide you with a bit of history on the Shiloh Sharps company. At the very bottom of this article I will provide you with info on how YOU can personally BUY one of these iconic rifles.
First a little history on the Shiloh Sharps company courtesy of Wikipedia:
“Shiloh Rifle Manufacturing Company is a firearms manufacturer located in Big Timber, Montana, United States.
The company produces a line of reproductions of various historical black-powder rifles, including the legendary 1874 Sharps Rifle, featured in the 1990 Western film Quigley Down Under, starring Tom Selleck.
Shiloh Sharps Rifle began production in 1983. Previously, the Sharps rifle reproductions were manufactured by Shiloh Products Inc. founded by Len Mulé (pronounce Mull-A) of Garfield, New Jersey, in partnership with Wolfgang Droge, who owned Drovel Tool Company of Farmingdale, New York, from 1976 to 1983. Len Mulé was responsible for all early drawings and mechanical drawings and prototype work on the Model 1863 and truly deserves the full credit for as the second founder of Sharps and its re-introducing into the modern era.”
“Shiloh Rifle Manufacturing is a family owned business that has been established since 1976, and is the recognized leader in the quality production and craftsmanship of the incomparable Sharps Rifle. Each of our customers are special too us and we take great care in custom building a rifle to their desired specs and needs.
