1877 Checkering

Post by BML » Sun May 12, 2019 8:23 pm

Hello,

Does anyone have photos of their Shiloh Sharps 1877s with checkering? I wanted to know if they are patterned after the original checkering pattern, like the attached photo, or something different?

Thank you guys!

Bryan

It would be interesting to compare those photos to similar photos of a Shiloh.

Wonderful! That looks excellent, and I actually prefer the lines of that pattern, to the one I posted. Thank you for sharing those photos, Kirk.

Does Suzi do the checkering, as well as the metal engraving?
