I am looking for a hard to find 50/100/450 octagon barrel. If anyone has any leads to one or has one for sale please let me know. I'm also looking for a half magazine. I purchased the rifle at a very low price, then received a letter from Cody Museum stating Caliber: 50/100/450, half magazine. Very rare combo and trying to get it back to factory spec. It currently has a 45/70 barrel with full magazine. I was also wondering if I would have to change anything else to change it back to original configuration. Thanks Chad
