Help with finding a Sharps

I'm in the market for a .50 Sharps. I know they don't reproduce them anymore, but that's what I think would fit the bill. More interested in one that looks new than one with patina.

Gunbroker hasn't been much help and I've been watching that for a month or two.

Any help appreciated. TIA

Shiloh still catalogs .50-70. And .50 "capping breechloader" too.

Bill Goodman keeps several Shilohs on order and sells them for early delivery for $200 over list price.

C.Sharps still builds .50 caliber Rifles.
I've got a 50-70 I really like, a 26in bbl Saddle Rifle, that weighs about 7.5lbs
It's a great carrying rifle for hunting.
