Introducing the next Lyman Classic: The Sharps' Model of 1877 final side hammer rifle was often referred to as the "English-Model" due to its refined styling. Painstakingly crafted to Lyman's specifications, by Pedersoli, this rare model has only been reproduced as an expensive, custom made gun, until now. 

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 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.
