The classic single-shot rifle of the late 1800s has had a resurgence of interest in the past ten years. One reason is the sport of Black Powder Cartridge Rifle Silhouette. In this competition, shooters must knock down steel silhouettes at ranges out to 500 meters. The challenge is the equipment; Original or exact reproduction single shot rifles that shoot cartridges loaded with black powder. Only original sights are used, no scopes.
