    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.

    H&R 1871 - Barrel Accessory Program

    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

    U bet by, the way, my handi serial number begins with NM wich means it was built in 1999 so therefor I cant get any other barrel other than shotgun barrels, becouse the frame is the gen 1 sb2 only frames made after I believe 2000 qualify for optional rifle barrles to be fitted
