is there some place to get more information on what can be converted and who does it?

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


Thanks I will take a look.

Me? I'm so broke I can't pay attention. \:D

But I own a safe full of M/L just wondering if one of them might be on the list. Only one I see that might be is my Optima but it is a older one so it might be out too.

As long as your Optima is one of the models that you can interchange barrels you should be ok - you'll just need to find a 45/70 barrel and send that in for the conversion.

I'd skip the savage. Nothing wrong with them, great shooters, but I think you would like the 45 better.

I have both and so far the conversion wont hold a candle to the Savage.....but Whitakers also have the CVA Apex and the 45/70 barrels...together after tax you looking at $700 tho.

If you're looking at the apex buy the 45/70 model instead of the mzl and 45/70... Will save you lots of $. They also have the camo version for a little more.
