A dumb question ........ If you changed the barrel of the 50-110 cal to a 45-70 cal on the 1886 Winchester would the action handle the cal. change without modification??....Jack

Easy answer, yes.

But why?

The critical dimension in an 1886 or 1892 is rim diameter. The rim is the same diameter on both cartridges.
