    Garrett Arms of Norfolk, Va., had some high quality repro rifles made by Palmetto of Italy in the 70's and 80's. The Sharps and 1863 percussion Sharps are highly sought after. I have one of the Mississippi rifles, which is a bit higher quality than the run-of-the-mill Mississippis you see. Markings are sharp and authentic, it's just a beautiful gun. Anyone else out there have one of them? I got mine at auction, and found out that it is a nice piece. Mr. Garrett passed some years back.Thanks.

    His percussion Sharps was the only repro to have a fully functioning Lawrence pellet primer and they had a beautiful finish.

    We don't talk about cartridge guns on the Muzzleloading Forum. It's against the forum rules.

    I had a later Sharps, first rate construction and finish. Did not know he imported muzzle loader rifles. Although it would make sense. It still surprises me about Palmetto. Some of their product was worse than trash and some was still better than the current Italian products
