Re: Small Caliber Rifle Trials
Thanks for the information.
I've been looking at the various rifle trials and of course I have more questions than answers.
In the 1878 magazine rifle trials Fuller lists a Sharps rifle. Did Sharps every make a magazine rifle?
Also, the technology of the lever action rifles seem to be far ahead of the other rifles of the time. Why were they ignored by the militaries (except for some state militias). I know the Russians in WWI bought some Winchester 1995s, but they were so desperate they were buying anything.
