Gear Review: Lyman Ideal Model Single Shot

Lyman’s “Ideal Model™” Sharps Rifle is a unique variation on the popular single shot design.

Lyman introduces an elegant Sharps style rifle. Scaled down in size and weight, the design is a superior, single-shot hunting rifle in the renowned .38-55 and .22 Hornet chamberings. Named the Ideal Model, the rifle’s streamlined lock profile and vintage-style laser engraving are a Lyman exclusive and unavailable elsewhere. Further, Lyman’s proven tang sight and globe front sight combine with the rifle’s double set triggers to deliver the full measure of accuracy this premium rifle offers.

Most important among the exclusive features of this single shot are the Lyman specified bore dimensions. Defined by Lyman’s ballistic laboratory, the bore is optimized for both cast and jacketed bullet performance. Additional specs include: Overall length: 42”, Rate of Twist: 1/18, Weight: 6lbs, Barrel Length: 26”. The rifle is manufactured exclusively for Lyman by Chiappa Firearms, Italy. Other Ideal Model exclusive premium features include: Custom Lyman Tang Sight With Target And Hunting Apertures, Precision Lyman Globe Front Sight With Inserts, Distinctive Streamlined Receiver Profile and a Bright Finish Receiver with Vintage Style Laser Engraving.

The Lyman Ideal Model .38-55 Win (#6003855) and .22 Hornet (#6000022) Sharps Rifles, as well as all Lyman products and brands, are available nationally through firearms and sporting goods dealers and mail order companies.
