Does anyone know of plans that I can use to build a Sharp rolling block rifle?
I have used a few different search engins with no luck. Any help would be greatfully accepted!

First, let me make a correction: A Rolling Block is a Remington rifle. A Sharps is something else all together.

There are a lot of books out about Rolling Blocks. Do a search for Rolling Block, BPCR (Black Powder Cartridge Rifle), and things like that. Dixie Gun Works probably has books on Rolling Blocks.

Maybe because a Sharps is a falling block, not a (Remington) Rolling Block?

Buffalo Arms has them;

There is another source but I cannot lay hands on it tonight.

There is also a site that has castings of most of the parts needed for a large number of the single shot rifles. I had my HARD DRIVE fail and I lost everything , that website was one lost. But now it is mentioned someone will pipe up with the URL.

Found a site that might help GOTO www.kwk.us then in the index goto "RODNEY STORIE CASTINGS" Good Luck.
