    id like to have one of the enfield bolt actions in 45-70. where do i find them and whats a good price for them? i know Gibbs rifles imports or converts them or whatever but is there any others? i found one at a gun show a while back for i think $260. i should have bought it but i ended up buyin a Win model 100 instead. was that a good price? i havnt seen one since.

    I see them every once in awhile in Shotgun News, and they are usually close to $300

    gibbs 45-70 find?

    GIBBS is no longer around, but if you can find one, $250.00 would be a good buy, I have one and love it. The 45-70 will take down anything in north america and the Enfield action is strong enough for any high pressure 45-70 round. My gun don't like 400 gr. hot but the 300 gr. partition does very well @ 2200 fps.and shoots 1.5" groupings / 100 yds. But don't loose the mag. I've been trying to get an extra one for 3 yrs. with ZERO luck.
