I posted in the high power rifle forum that a pump rifle in 45-70 based on a similar action to a 410 shotgun would make a lot of sense. Well since no one makes them already, you know what I'm thinking...

If the magazine fits the 45-70 shells, and the action is long enough, I'm thinking a new barrel with a new locking system would work great. Or maybe a mini-receiver that hooks in like a barrel and a locking system to match it and the barrel in front.

Sound good, or should I run while I still can?

I couldn't be sure, but would a 410 action be able to handle the force of a 45-70, I imagine it would have quite a lot more kick than a 410?

That's what the new barrel and locking system would be for. The parts that would be the same are receiver, mag tube, trigger group, and stock.
