You will waste alot of money and time attempting to get info on a particular Sharps. Coates& McCauly have printed a nice descriptive book called CivilWar Sharps Carbines & Rifles....in it they list the KNOWN records of Sharps Rifles & Carbines that can be attributed to a mustering out list to an individual & military unit along with the serial number of the weapon mustered. You can WASTE HUNDREDS of dollars in hoping you will find something to an individual...get the book on Amazon.com save yourself grief/money.....Guy
