Pedersoli 1859 Sharps Infantry Rifle First Look

Pedersoli Model 1859 Sharps Infantry Rifle is a breechloading, lever-actuated, falling block single shot rifle.

It was invented in 1848 by Christian Sharps. The first Sharps rifles had a breech block that slanted to the rear. These guns were made from 1850 until 1859.

The Model 1859 Sharps was the first to use a straight breech block, which proved to be a stronger design. Sharps made 100,000 of all variations.
