The kneeling guy appears to be using a 1874 Sharps buffalo rifle, but I can't really tell for sure :)

Scott: I believe its an 1859 sharps cavalry carbine in .54 caliber, with a attached vernier tang peep site. TIG

I suppose it could be. The barrel just seems a bit long.

It's very difficult to tell the difference between the two. The cavalry carbines did indeed have a long barrel, as did the 1874 model. It would be easier to figure it out if we could see the right side of the piece. But I guess that is not to be.

'59 Carbine did not have a metal cap on the fore stock.
