Dixie Gun Works/Pedersoli 1874 Sharps Target Rifle

Notes: Built by Pedersoli of Italy and sold by them and by Dixie Gun Works of the US, the 1874 Sharps Target Rifle is a replica of the 1874 Sharps Target Model. The rifle features an octagonal, heavy, tapered barrel a full 32 inches long. The stock has a straight wrist made from European walnut; the fore-end is of the Schnabel type. The fore-end is checkered, and the entire stock is oil-finished. Despite the length and weight, it is very well balanced and surprisingly easy to wield. The rear sights are ladder-type adjustable sights, and the front sight is a silver blade. The barrel is deep blued, and the rest of the metalwork is color-case hardened. The weapon has a set trigger which reduces the normal 6.75 pounds of pull to mere ounces. The set trigger is adjustable for position. The 1874 Sharps Target Rifle is designed for both blackpowder and modern propellant rounds.

Heym-Ruger HR-30

Notes: First built in the late 1970s, the HR-30 is basically a Heym rifle built on a Ruger No. 1 single-shot action. The action is definitely Rugerís (and even built in the US), but the quality of the stock and the engraving of the side-plates is Heymís work. The HR-30 can be had with a round or octagonal barrel, and the design has a set trigger. The top has claws for a telescopic sight.
