  • Hello,
      I just wanted to say I received my rifle this past Thursday. I ordered a (1874) Bridgeport with a military butt stock. I must tell you this is the most awesome piece of work I have ever seen. The wood to metal fit is flawless, like it is all one piece. The balance of the rifle is perfect. The blue and case harden finish is top quality. And even though I ordered plain finish on the wood, the stocks are my favorite part of the whole gun. The straight grain walnut looks as it should, and the finish is all I hoped it would be. 
    I thank you for making a fine American made rifle of such high quality and making my dream of owning a sharps rifle everything I hoped it to be.
