Sharps rifles were a series of large bore single shot rifles beginning with a design by Christian Sharps in 1848, and were produced through 1881. Famous for their long range accuracy, Sharps rifles were one of the few designs to successfully transition to metallic cartridges. They became a favorite among target shooters and buffalo hunters, and were used by the US Army for a number of years.
