    These examples are .45-70 but there seems to be a couple of builds on US gun boards converting them to .500 s&w. They have made a silk purse out of a sows ear if you ask me.

    I know they do custom lever guns in the states but the "msrp" on those is about 2kUSD!

    I was guna buy one of these in 450 marlin or 45 -70 once ( sorry can't remember exact cal ) was a short barrelled little black thing that was 2nd hand in local gun shop, It looked farken cool but picking the first owner probably wanted something a little quieter & softer shooting hahaha

    The problem with the 500 is in comparison to the 452, the brass is $$ & non-existent, the projectiles are twice the price of .452 & non-existent...good times, cool as though

    I shoot a 12.17 x44r Husqvana rolling block, it's got a barrel like a piece of pipe!
