Rifles listed below are duplicates in my collection. In the process of acquiring originals for the purpose of reverse engineering the parts for reproduction, I have necessarily acquired more than one example of some contracts. Please contact me regarding additional photographs and description details. In those cases where I have more than one duplicate, the photo used will remain on the website while that contract model is in stock. In that case "file photo" will be noted. If you have something you desire for your collection that you do not see listed let me know as I may be able to refer you to a source for that item. In those instances where an FFL or C&R is required for transfer it will be so noted in the description. Because the firearm listed may be sold pending funds please contact me before ordering to insure it is still available.
Early Round Top Sporting Model. Chambered .46 rim fire. Marcot indicates the early round tops were manufactured from 1868 to 1872. Most of them were manufactured in a rim fire cartridge. Many of those surviving have been altered in one way or another including center fire conversions. The few remaining unmolseted round top sporting rifles are rare. There are a number of variations of these round tops. This one has the type #4 butt plate, a round steel forend tip and the sculptured shadow line trigger guard bow (rather unusual in its own right). For documentation of these and other features see chapter 3 in Marcot's book on the Rolling Block Sporting Rifles. $1850

It was converted to smokeless 8x58R about 1889. This conversion included new breech block and hammer serial numbered to the rifle as well as heat treating the receiver. The receiver, hammer and breech block all have matching serial numbers. The action was subsequently barreled .45-70. The barrel is half octagon half round 26 1/2 inches long. It has dovetail cuts for the front sight and under lug for mounting a sporting model forend. The upper tang has been drilled and tapped for a tang sight.

An excellent barrel and receiver combination for building a sporting model rifle. $750 SOLD
