Here's quite a selection of Sharps rifles made by Pedersoli available from this Canadian importer. I don't know how the quality compares with the Shiloh rifles, some reviews say they are very close. Better be, considering the prices...

Shiloh Sharps can take something like 2 years to actually get after you order it. Fine rifles.

But so are Pedersoli's. It's my understanding that Pedersoli uses a progressive twist rate in their barrels that makes them very accurate. They win a lot of matches. Personally a Pedersoli Sharps 1877 is on my short list of guns to own.
