Fine 3-band rifle with 30" rnd bbl, square base front sight/bayonet lug with Lawrence Patent ladder rear sight & standard Sharps markings on bbl, receiver & lockplate.

Berdan's Sharpshooters were organized in late 1861 by Col. Hiram Berdan and after much wrangling with The Ordnance Dept., 1,000 Sharps rifles were ordered in Jan. 1862 with the order being increased to 2,000 in Feb. 1862. Col. Berdan contacted Sharps Co. and requested them to modify the contract to supply dbl set triggers to which they readily complied. When the Chief of the Ordnance Dept., learned of this from his inspectors, he immediately ordered the company to stop abridgment of the contract which was done after only about 500 of the dbl set trigger rifles were completed. Balance of contract of 1,500 rifles was furnished with sgl triggers. Reference: Sharps Firearms, Sellers.
