    What are you using it for? Target shooting? Competition? Hunting? Just for fun? Smokeless powder? Blackpowder?

    I have a Ruger #1 with an octagonal barrel in Win 50/110. Would think about selling. Nice gun. If interested I will get some photos for you.

    Now-I shoot Shiloah guns a bunch. Take the advice of one who has been there DO NOT BUY a .45 larget than 45/90. The 45/110 (I have one) costs much more for brass and they are FINICKY. Look at the black powder shoot results and you will see that cartridges that stay around 1200 to 1300 fps win everything. That is because of wind drift at distances. These big slow bullets do not act like modern bullets at speed. The only reason I would say go to a 45/90 is that 45/70 brass is rolled to 45/90 length, is not too expensive and you can seat the bullet to 45/70 levels WITH ALL the grease groves covered so hunting bullets are easier to keep clean while carrying them around. This is a world unlike any other in shooting sports and you will love or hate it. There is no middle ground!
    If I can help more, give me a number and I will call you.
