It's a Pedersoli Sharps Heavy Target model. .45-70, 34" heavy 1/3 octagon barrel, vernier tang sight, double set triggers. I shoot 520 grain cast lead bullets (that I cast) lubed with a lube that I mixed over black powder.
It's a HOOT to shoot. Sounds like a cannon and makes a nice cloud of smoke! It's a crowd pleaser!
I ran into a guy who had one of those once...what a FUN gun to shoot! The sights are awesome!!
I have a few variations of this rifle. My fav is the model m (photo off the web below) that takes the AK clip. Also have heard the rifle referred to as the poor man's AK....dunno about all that, its fun to shoot though.

Here are three of my favorite short guns. Thompson Center Encore with a Virgin Valley 50 cal. muzzleloader. The barrel was supposed to be 14" but wound up being 13". Shoots good out to 50 yards if you can get past the muzzle flash and smoke. TC Contender with a 44 cal barrel, and a Beretta 92FS Centurion. I noticed there were not many fans of Beretta so far but I really like this 9mm.
