They person to talk to is Carlos...he is an expert on this subject and your lucky..he is in N. Carolina...was the barrel cut by chance...thats a short barrel...but any ways talk to Carlos at Ed's gun shop....he goes by the name cvilorio on the forum here...he will be glad to get you going in right direction....by the way what you want to do has been done...but I never seen one done with a short barrel...but who am I to know the performance ...if the price is right just get a bergerra barrel for it in 45/70 better barrel and not expensive...



the shop number is
910) 692-7936

the shop is in Vass, NC 28394

Ok here is the one I did which is 20", and unless the barrel you have was cut it should also be 20". Mine shoot great, adn is one of my favorites. I have target posted in here just look fort them in this section. If you do decide to go that way call me and I will point you in the right direction.
