The Sharpshooter (Quigley Down Under)
Contact our Baron Hats Team if you have questions, suggestions or feedback!
Inspired by the hat worn by Tom Selleck as ace Marksman, Matthew Quigley in “Quigley Down Under”
Now this is one hell of a hat! A hat that makes a statement. You can’t ignore anyone wearing this wonderful creation! You can see this hat comin’ atcha from miles away… just like a bullet from the famous Sharp’s rifle that Matthew Quigley (aka Roy Cobb), used in this most beloved of westerns!
This was one of those rare movies in which everything shined. Script, cast (many believe this was Tom Selleck’s best work), music, and all those great “extra’s”, that have now become part of the western lexicon, from his amazing rifle, to his knife (see below to learn how to get the original knife as well!), to that unmistakable hat.
We’ve had so many custom requests for this beauty, that we’re now offering it as one of our classic reproductions.
We call it the “Sharpshooter”, both in honor of Quigley’s occupation, and for that famous rifle. (The infamous gun was actually a replica model 1874 Sharps Buffalo Rifle fitted to fire .45-110 paper patch black powder cartridges, and had a barrel length of 34 inches, and yes, it really could do everything you saw in the movie, including travel so fast and so far that you’d feel the bullet before you heard the shot!). The hat itself is a modified “Tom Mix” style with an extra high crown and wide brim, with that unmistakable over-extended “gallop fold” to create its popular personality! We dye it in the original silver-belly, and it comes with the original extra wide hand-tooled leather hatband. You can get it with the unique leather hand-woven stampede strings with a double-loop brim wrap as Tom wore it, or without. This is not a hat for everybody, but for those who seem to handle “larger than life” with the same ease that Quigley shoulders his thunder gun!
Please note: The original crown was higher than the one we offer. We have found that most customers do not want the oversized crown height, since, unless you tower over the world like Mr. Selleck, it looks a bit "odd".
However, if you want your "Sharpshooter" to be the same height of the original, simply let us know in the "Special Instructions" box in our shopping cart, and we will make it such, at no extra charge!
Also, the color of your "Sharpshooter" will be that of the original hat. Due to the many variances in computer monitors, the color you see on your screen may be slightly different that the actual custom made hat. Rest assured, you are getting the original hat in the original color!
Our Classic Reproductions hats are custom hand-made-to-order, so please allow approximately EIGHT WEEKS FOR DELIVERY. If you must have the hat sooner, e-mail us for special Rush Delivery prices and your delivery date needs to: firstname.lastname@example.org
