Middletown, Conn. – Lyman® Products proudly celebrates 140 years in business with a new 140th Anniversary Lyman Sharps Carbine Model. Designed by the internationally renowned Italian Firearms Group, Davide Pedersoli®, the new Lyman Sharps Carbine is a streamlined, lighter weight version of the 1878 model, also made by Pedersoli.
The 140th Anniversary Sharps Carbine will be chambered in 30-30 Winchester and equipped with a Lyman #2 Tang sight, which was one of the original sights that gave Lyman their start 140 years ago. Only 140 carbines will be produced and serialized from one to 140.
“For over 140 years, Lyman Products has continued to grow and innovate, no matter the economic environment,” Trevor Mullen, VP of Global Marketing and Business Development said. “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.”
The carbine’s front sight also pivots to allow the shooter to choose between a blade sight or a globe style bead sight. The carbine features a 24-inch barrel and weighs seven pounds. The rifles are engraved with “Lyman Gun Sight Company 1878 – 2018 140 years” on the brushed nickel hammer plate and side plate. MSRP is $1,999.95.
