When you say " Sharps-Percussion" Are you talking about the "Paper cased and Cap" or the Brass cased type Sharps??

Either would be fun to play with.

you can shoot both out of a sharps percussion. I am not talking about the fixed ammunition like the 45-70 etc.. I think you can load paper cartridges and they have a reusable brass cartridge with the primer missing that you can load into the percussion gun and shoot. Thats what im talking about I dont know much about how to load them.

I'd really love to get a Gemmer/Sharps. Someone was making replicas of them a few years back; might still be.

They were the Sharps percussion action with a heavy octagon barrel and stock/forarm just like the real Hawkens. Apparently J P Gemmer, who baought he St. Louis gun smithing business from the remaining Hawken brother (I can;t remember if it was Jake or Samuel) used to make these conversions back in the mid 1800s.
