Thanks LASM. I bought my son a .44 mag H&R when he was younger, and through an ad in the classified I was able to trade it for an H&R 45-70. Worked out great for both parties. The guy had a young son with 2 even younger ones that could really use the .44 mag and my son is a big guy now and will make good use of the 45-70. Score for LASM classified!
