I purchased a beater 12ga M51 Husqvarna from Ken for this project.
http://www.kebcollc.com/

RD Show, a member here, did the actual conversion.








The scope is Redfield Widefield 2-7 that I purchased unused.



4 shots during the barrel regulation.



Unfortunately, during the conversion Rich found the stock was cracked:



So, I sent the gun off to Dan May to be restocked. Here is the result.







Dan has more pictures up on his website:

Next stop is the range, then on for some Russian boar.

Pete what did the conversion sans stock cost if you don't mind? I have just bought a cape gun that I want to convert to double rifle. Sauer cape gun in 16ga and 11mm.

Shotgun barrel is too thin. I only paid $200 for it. With the sights already on the rib it should lessen the work.

Very attractive and superbly accurate. You must have great eyesight to get groups from iron sights like that one.

That was RD Show shooting with iron sights, not me. I prefer a scope.

Well, the costs..... I paid Ken $250 for the gun. I was going to simply use the barrels, as I have M51 12ga. However, only a 3 year difference according to the serial number list and there was no way that the barrels would interchange. I don't remember the exact price of the conversion, but I believe it was around $1,300 or so. I am not sure if Rich is still working on guns.

Really think hard about doing any conversion. I am still not sure if I would do it again. Dan's stock really helps the gun. Rich and I spoke for hours about the proper choice. I really like the 45-70, so it was matter of finding a proper loading.

Anyone know of someone that does this? I need contact info. I'd have paid the $1300.

Pete, are you planning to fill in the shimmed areas on the through lug for better accuracy?

Rich, thanks I assumed the iron sights. My mistake. I am glad you approve the stock. It will be heading to Michigan soon. I want to see how one of Ted Nugent's boars like it.

Bill, why fix it if it's not broke? I am more than happy with accuracy as it stands.

Pete
