The German Waffen Ferkinghoff company is an EU importer and distributor representative of American weapons and specialties, and is now expanding its offer with a legendary Pedersoli Lyman Sharps 1878 model
As the buffalo era was ending, Sharps refined their renowned rifle to create the rare 1877 Model. More streamlined, the Model 1877 was more hunting/target rifle and less heavy buffalo gun. It was the most advanced single shot of the day. A year later, William Lyman introduced his now famous Tang Sight.
Reproduced for today's single shot enthusiast, Sharps' final iconic side-hammer design and Lyman's sights combine to create the Pedersoli Lyman Model of 1878.
Painstakingly crafted by Pedersoli to Lyman's specifications, 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.
For the German market, Ferkinghoff now offers this rifle in caliber .45-70 Government - Check at www.waffen-ferkinghoff.com
