Good morning Sharpshooters;

I was perusing the Authentic Campaigner this morning and found this item posted for sale by fellow shooting enthusiast, John Raternik from Michigan:

Garrett Berdan Sharps with Original Lockplate, DST etc.
Simply the finest Garrett Sharps you will find.
Serial number 778
Original Lockplate
Double Set Triggers

also,
NEI Ringtail mold and handles

Asking $2700.00

3 day inspection period

PM for payment details


Photos are posted on today's AC website. Looking at the wood, bluing and case hardening--this Garrett looks to my eyes to be 'mint'. For anybody who looked at the asking price and gulped, compared to a brand new Shiloh (with the added advantages of a rare dst and Lawrence pellet primer system) the asking price is not unreasonable. For a Sharpshooter who wants the 'ultimate repop Sharps', I think this one is it.

Bill,

Thanks for the kind evaluation, they mimic my thoughts - John and I were PMing last night regarding details, and the deed was done very early this morning. :D
