    Thanks for that, nice way to start a Saturday.
    That is one nice replica, and the finish looks outstanding.

    I used to drive by their factory when I worked that side of Montana so one day I stopped and they gave me the grand personal tour. Great folks and they had some awesome rifles on display. They take pride in their product and it shows.

    Thanks for sharing the video. I once owned Ruger No. 3 in 45-70 and shot my handloads as well as factory ammo. I got a kick out of it, literally.

    It looks ever better in person. Unfortunately, this one isn't mine so I have to give this one back to its owner!

    I would love to see the factory. I've talked to them at the NRA Annual Meeting and they seem like great folks. They definitely build tremendous rifles!

    Howard thanks for posting another good video, I enjoyed watching it. One of my former co-workers and home rifle range shooters has a couple of the Shiloh Sharps rifles in the rifle length. I'm impressed with how well his shoots. The falling block rifles are a real hoot to shoot.

    I have one of these made by Pedersoli in 50/70 Government. I use BP and cast my own boolits (300gr & 450gr). Lots of fun to shoot. The trigger pull is heavy and long, but recoil is fairly light.

    Shame they stopped making the carbine. They have to make what sells,of course.
