Hi all, I was wondering where I might find paper tube cartridges for a .52 caliber Sharps Carbine. Thanks

The ones Andy sells fit my Sharps fine.

Most Sharps carbines are .54 caliber. Are you sure yours is .52?

The boys of the Randolph Mess in Michigan, who often portray US Sharpshooters, have an excellent series of articles on Sharps rifles, their use and care, and ammunition.

Garrett Sharps reproductions are .52 Cal.

They aren't pre-rolled, but I use hair-rolling papers for cartridges. They come in packages of 500 or so from any beauty supply store, cost pennies and burn up completely in the barrel.

I guess that they were available in several calibers, I have own 2 Garrets, one was a part gun, there were several part that should have had serial numbers but did not. It was .56 cal. The other is a .54 cal. I had asked Frank about the .56 cal, and he said that it was a part gun and that he regrets selling all the excess parts to Navy Arms after the planned production was met.
