Matthew Quigley's Shiloh Sharps 1874 Long Range rifle with a 34" barrel (4"s longer than a standard 30" barrel) converted to fire a .45-110 metallic cartridge with a 540 grain paper-patch bullet. It has double-set triggers, a ladder-elevated vernier peep sight, and a Globe front sight. It was marked up to twelve-hundred yards; his shoots a mite further.
