armi sports Sharps

Just wondering about the quality of the armi sports sharps rifles. I Was thinking of buying one. I'm not so much concerned about finish as much as function and accuracy

I have one.

I couldn't wait for a Shiloh Sharps, and the Pedersolis in my neck of the woods were already sold out back in 2005, so I went with a Taylor's & Co. 32" Sharps, as made by Armi Sports.

It doesn't have the fit and finish of a Shiloh Sharps, but I only paid $1100 for it via Buffalo Bill's Shooting Store in Orlando, FL.

Being a 1000-yard competitive shooter in the smokeless world, I had some trepidation when learning BPCR with a rifle that wasn't the bestest of the bunch per some.

Those fears were quickly allayed, and I've gotten seriously bitten by the BPCR bug, to the point of even casting my own 535gr Postells.

Here's one of the first groups I ever fired from the Taylor/Armi-Sport rifle:

Would you have an online copy of that target?

The target is already online.

It's hosted by my webserver.

Right-click with your cursor over the target, and simply select "Save Picture As" (or "Save Image As" if you're using Firefox as your browser), then save the target.

Or are you asking for an online version of a blank target sans .459" holes?

I have one and shoot it well. I like the finish. And with the Davide Pedersolii long range soule sights I can hit the steel Buffalo @ 1000 yrs. What more can I say.
