Lyman Products is celebrating 140 years of operation with the commemorative Lyman Sharps Carbine.

The Lyman Sharps Carbine

Designed exclusively for Lyman by Davide Pedersoli, this setup is basically a lighter weight version of Lyman’s “Model of 1878,” which is also made by Pedersoli. The right side of the receiver is engraved with the following text: “The Lyman Gun Sight Corp. 1878 – 2018 140 years.” The left side simply says, “Lyman 140 years.”

This 140th anniversary Lyman Sharps Carbine is chambered in .30-30 Winchester. It features a 24-inch barrel and has an overall weight of seven pounds. In addition, the rifle has a Lyman #2 Tang sight, which the company says “was one of the original sights that gave us our start 140 years ago.” Meanwhile, front sight pivots enable the end user to pick between a blade or globe bead sight.

“For over 140 years, Lyman Products has continued to grow and innovate, no matter the economic environment,” Trevor Mullen, Lyman’s VP of global marketing and business development, said in a press release. “We, at Lyman, believe our customers have a great deal to do with our success. To honor our 140th anniversary and say thank you to our many loyal customers, we offer this exclusive, limited edition, beautifully crafted Sharps Carbine.”

Only 140 of these models will be made. The rifles will be serialized from one to 140.

The MSRP on the Lyman Sharps Carbine is $1,999.95. Check out the video below for a closer look at this special rifle.
