Making the Sharpes rifle

In my usual time of relaxing and surfing the internet I came across some interesting video’s on the making of the Sharps rifle.

The first is the machining of the receiver.

The next video is making the stock.

This is the barrel making video.

This last video deals with the finish that is applied to the rifle.

I enjoy video’s dealing with gun making. I dope you do as well.

    Wow, that’s a lot of handwork, especially on the wood. I’m surprised they don’t rough in the contour with CNC.

    I’ve had dealings with Badger barrels before (now owned by Airtronics). I would choose a better barrel manufacturer.
