The No. 1 Tang Sight paved the way for William Lyman and the Lyman Gun Sight Co. in 1878. This patented and innovative aperture sight design provides fast, accurate and consistent sighting, even in adverse lighting conditions. Now, 140 years on, Lyman is celebrating its anniversary with a commemorative 1878 Sharps Carbine. Built by Pedersoli of Italy, the 140th Anniversary model reproduces the Sharps’ falling-block action and is chambered for the .30-30 Win. cartridge. The carbine features a 24" barrel, weighs 7 lbs. and, of course, is fitted with a Lyman No. 2 tang sight and two-position, globe-style front sight. The receiver’s sides also feature commemorative engraving. A limited run of 140 guns will be available starting on Aug. 1. Price: $2,000. Contact: Lyman Products; (800) 225-9626; lymanproducts.com.
