I really like the RSI's and want one chambered to a straight walled case like the 38-55, or 405 win................something I can cast bullets for. Unfortunately the current manufactured varieties are all 30-06 class pieces. Nice, and I have one, but not what Im looking for. A friend of mine who is a gunsmith is trying to research if perhaps a #1 medium sporter in 45-70 could be converted to an RSI by sweating off the front sight band and sling swivel band, shortening the barrel a couple inches, and replacing the front sight band and forearm with an RSI forearm. Anyone been close to down that road, or have everything at hand to say "easy conversion", or "cant be done" ? Thanks
