      Hey dub...

      Yea...I like old stuff...old rifles, old handguns, old fly rods and old telephones...and because my wife is the same age as me I guess I have to throw old women into the mix also....lol. I would be happy to help you however I can. As far as texting, I'm sorry but no, I don't text and don't even have it on my phone. I'm not a very techy sort of fella. If you can post the pictures to a photobucket account I could view them there.

      If it is a 52 cal. Sharps then it should be a paper cartridge rifle and I suspect a carbine. I'm not all that familiar with the Sharps from that era but I do have friends who are....and I have Frank Sellers book which can tell us when, where and by whom. They did convert them to metallic cartridges so at this point nothing is etched in stone. As with all old firearms, (or anything else), it's all about condition. This one could be a lot of fun to research.

      Hello sharps, Im dub27, been on here for a while and from reading post you seem very knowledgeable on ur older firearms. I was wondering if I could ask a favor, a friend of mine has an interesting rifle left to him by his grandfather and we were trying to gather some more info on it. Its a 52 cal sharps rifle and I have pretty detailed pics of it but am not to good at the whole posting picture thing..lol..so I was wondering if I could text you the pics to see if u might know some history on the gun and maybe a value on it. He doesn't want to get rid of it as its a family heirloom, just wanting info on it. Thanks for your time and if you can help that would b great, if not I understand and thank you anyway. On a side note always look forward to your posts. Have a great day
