    1859/63 Sharps Carbine handuard measurements

    Could someone with a Sharps Carbine take a couple measurements for me? I need the total length of the handguard, and I need the distance from the rear to the step down for the Barrel band. If its not too much trouble could you measure from the rear to the both the front and rear on the Barrel Band.

    Thank you in advance

    By the way, I note in the first picture I'm not holding the ruler exactly at the rear of the forestock, where it butts against the receiver. The other two measurements (barrel band and forestock tip) are correct.
