It also provides the necessary sighting radius for long-range matches. The Williams receiver sight is complemented by a traditional globe-style target front sight with eight aperture inserts.
Tradition, history and American craftsmanship combine to create today’s Harrington and Richardson rifles, continuing a legacy that began in 1871. The Harrington and Richardson 45/70 Government Buffalo Classic is a true American classic.
Modeled after the Frank Wesson tip-up rifles that were first made in Worcester, Massachusetts in the 1850s, these modern classics fill the need of the long-range Cowboy Action Shooter as well as those who simply enjoy shooting these great old cartridges.
The Buffalo Classic reflects true 19th century styling, including antique color case hardening on the frame and crescent butt plate, plus cut checkering on their American black walnut stocks and fore-ends. Very nicely done.
