Re: small bore??

One possibility. Could it be a movie/theatrical gun? If so, it may be chambered for a five in one blank by using an insert. This is only a theory. I had a .50-70 which chambered a .45-70 round but not a .50-70.. I bought that one off the late Bob Hill, who, in turn, had purchased it the great MGM lot selloff. Check the chamber/bore and see if it might have an insert and consider making a casting of the chamber.
