I've been planning on doing a conversion on my Rem700 ML, just haven't gotten around to it yet. Came across a CVA Optima Elite in 45/70 that already had the smokeless conversion done, so figured what the heck. Plan on getting the feel of shooting smokeless and use this for a year or two and if I'm hooked then I'll spend the money converting my Remington.

Here she is, think I'll call her "Thumper"

Suhweeet!!!! Congrats sir! I believe you will be quite happy! It's hard not to get hooked when you have a 300 yard killin machine. Having my 3rd one converted now, can't wait to get her back

all the research you need. Slufoot is the man for a 45/70 conversion.
