This is a pre-owned, never-fired rifle without original box/paperwork.
Following is the descriptions from taylor firearms website:
Best known as a buffalo-hunting gun, the Sharps sporting rifle became known as the "Old Reliable" by those who hunted buffalo for their hides. Among those associated with the rifles were Billy Dixon, Buffalo Bill Cody, Bat Masterson and others who used the big single-shot to maximum effect on the seemingly endless herds of buffalo. Reproducing the Sharps at a reasonable price was a challenge for modern manufacturers because of its sliding breechblock and many angles and corners. It has been accomplished, however, and Taylor & Co. is proud to offer the colorful, high quality 1874 Sporting Rifle in a variety of barrel lengths and calibers for hunting and target shooting.
The Sharps model features:
• Hand oil-finished walnut stock
• Receiver, breechblock, and trigger plate all machined from a solid piece of steel
• Lock plate and trigger guard contoured to the stock
• Tumbler fly, so the trigger can be sensitized to release softly
• One-piece tang, pre-drilled with 2-1/4” center-to-center holes for Creedmore Sight placement
• Hardened and polished screws and blue barrel
• Octagonal barrel flared at receiver
• Front sight dovetailed 3/8” and adjustable for windage
• All models have 1 in 18” twist with six grooves

Shopping at Guns.com gives you the backing of a company that is committed to your satisfaction. And unlike our competitors, it extends beyond the buying process. We get the FFL from your store – others make you find it, copy it, and fax it. We have a generous return policy, and handle everything – you don’t have to go back to the store. And our Rangemasters are here to answer all your questions about our products or process. We're bringing a level of service to the online gun buying experience that is unheard of.
Many online gun sales actually take away from your local community. Instead of buying a gun that’s on your local store’s shelf, most retailers drop ship it from a warehouse in another state. At Guns.com, if an FFL is part of our network, we sell THEIR guns first whenever possible. That way, we’re helping small businesses in your community AND if they have it in stock, you can pick your gun up IMMEDIATELY – it’s how business should be done.
Most everything can be easily bought online these days. But for some reason, buying a gun online can be complicated. Most websites are poorly organized, don’t tell you a lot about what you’re buying, and leave you on your own to figure out what you want. Guns.com is built to be simple – easily organized products, useful descriptions from experts, and support to guide you to the right choice. Spend your time enjoying the gun you want, not getting frustrated with a complex website that makes gun buying hard.
