I have purchased several of these in the past few years, and always been pleased. but the ones I got recently are smoother in the bore than ever before. the new polishing process leaves the bore flawless in lands and grooves, great for the lead bullet guys I work for. Also the round shanks are long enough now that I can retain the "tulip" at the breech when I install on a long barrel shank receiver like th Remington rolling block. I would like to see a Sharps standard weight (1.050 af at the breech tulip, .950" at the muzzle)or a 1.230' round section on a Wincester #3 contour. this would make a lighter gun for hunting. Good job!
