I have this rifle, it is gorgeous! I traded from the original owner after he got it from Sharps40. The rust blueing is wonderful! This rifle has been in the bush, hunted with many times. Still looks great! I hope he is still doing this kind of thing and I would LOVE a tutorial on how to "rust blue". It doesn't look difficult, but then again, it never looks difficult in a You Tube video or some other reference!
