Just a hair small for low wall action but the round receiver stub formed a perfect classic "tulip" you see on a Sharps. Finished at 26" with MVA sights makes an elegant little rifle. OH! Almost forgot, it shoots like crazy, the right load wants to shoot one hole 50yds. Now I want to do one in .44-40.
