So you could get a 45-70 barrel ad shoot it if you already have a 500 S&W?

Not always, and it is a factory job. H&R says: "We do not sell additional barrels outright. All barrels must be factory fitted."

And they do list a 45/70 barrel.

Yeah I wanted to know if the barrels would be interchangeable. If it has to be fitted I'd be better off buying another rifle to shoot the 45-70
