Rooster.....I Like your thinking. Considered this myself, but couldn't bear to cut even one of my (numerous) 1860's. But, I did "bob" my Remington 15-20 ys ago).
One of my thoughts on a cut-down 1860 is the convenience to continue using the loading lever. You can save the full-length lever, keeping it safe in your possibles bag & attach it to load, then remove it. For convenience, make yourself a screw having a large knurled head. This way you have a "speed screw" to attach and remove the lever. Much better than trying to load with one of those stubby levers like I have on my Remington.

Great minds think alike Slim. I have had the same loading techniques in mind, but I didn't think about a knurly bolt head for the will be done for sure. The gun has made it from the gun safe to the coffee table now. Just has to go from the coffee table to the shop now to meet the saw. Wink

The Cawffee and Hot water are ready for drinking. Enjoy!  The meatloaf turned out great. We have enough for supper tonight. I had a strawberry scone that moose baked yesterday with my Cawffee this morning.

Bunk, You are gonna have to get accustomed to our Texas weather. I was born in the Texas Panhandle and in 1957, we had a blizzard where we had snow drifts 9 feet deep. We had another one in 64, the drifts were about 4 or 5 feet deep. In 1980, we had over 100 days over 100 degrees temps. That, My friend is weather in Texas. I would not live any other place.

I was wondering could Arrow wood finish be some how applied  to grip or rifle checkering to lesson the Italian poly finish?

coarse with this one,  no need for the rammer  Smiley

I should also point out it's a 61 donor , and has Blair's suggestion of a second barrel except the 51 barrel was the spare part.
(BTW. this one has been lined for .357 and does shoot a might high I need to dovetail in a higher sight )

The OEM 61 barrel gets heeled bullets

I used a pipe cutter to cut the barrel down on my '49 Colt. Took awhile but it was nice and even.

Did that with an 1860.  Never put a new front sight on it and at defense distances it was accurate enough.
