Lyman Products rings in 140 years in business bringing a special, commemorative Lyman Sharps Carbine Model to life.

The 140th Anniversary Sharps Carbine Model is chambered in .30-30 Winchester and sports a Lyman #2 Tang Sight — one of the original sights that got Lyman started. The long gun’s front sight pivots, giving shooters a choice between a blade sight or a globe style bead.

Weighing in at 7-pounds, the gun’s barrel measures 24-inches. The rifles, 140 in total, are engraved with “Lyman Gun Sight Company 1878-2018 140 Years” on the brushed nickel hammer plate and side plate.

“For over 140 years, Lyman Products has continued to grow and innovate, no matter the economic environment,” Trevor Mullen, VP of Global Marketing and Business Development, said in a news release. “We, at Lyman, believe our customers have a great deal to do with our success. To honor our 140th anniversary and say thank you to our many loyal customers, we offer this exclusive, limited edition, beautifully crafted Sharps Carbine.”

The 140th Anniversary Sharps Carbine Model features a MSRP of $1,999.
