Do any of the repro makers make an 1886 in .50-110 Express?

I've not heard of any. Probably have to be a custom thing.

You would probably just have to buy a 86 from a manufacturer and send it somewhere to have it converted to 50-110. It's not a popular cartridge like 45-70 or even 45-90, so a custom gun would be your best bet.

Turnbull will build his in .50-110.  Pricey, but beautiful!

Older post, so not sure anyone is looking.
I picked up a B71 in 348 Win,  the pistol grip version of an 86, with the vision of making it a 50-110. I took it to Wayne York at “Oregunsmithing” to rebore the barrel, and rechamber to 50-110. New starline brass in 50-110, is like a 50 Alaskan, but longer, as the head of the case is slightly smaller. It is the same as the 348, 50AK etc. Just 2.407 long. I’m having the chamber cut 2.411.  You can actually single feed 500 linebaugh, 500 max, and the Bowen and reeder as well, plus it should reliably feed 50-110 (new cases) and 50AK  thru the magazine.
     The barrel will be shortened as the F sight was screwed on, and the larger bore will cut into the screw holes. A good recoil pad will be added as well. Yes it’s a Browning recreation, but it will be a good shooter, all in just under $2K

I have a B71 x348  the pistol grip stock and lever shape is markedly different than a pistol grip 1886 - the model 71 lever is a knuckle buster - reshaping that would be top of my list in doing a conversion . I hear there is a fair bit of internal work involved in getting these actions to feed the 50/110 properly - dont know - have not done one. Also woulda thought the 71 tube a tad skinny to rebore to 50 cal ? keep us posted

The main problem with a rebore, is the end of the barrel. Where the original Front sight is screwed on, that area of the barrel needs to be trimmed off. The new bore would probably get into the screw holes. Good thing about a 50AK or 50-110( newer brass, with smaller head like a 500L and 50AK) it’s a lower pressure round, although a heavier bullet. Mike loads will still have a heavy punch.
