    What needs to be done. It looks a good M1867/96 in 11.35 c/f cal. A previous owner has indulged in a bit of checkering on the wrist. Best of the bunch?
    Bayonets aren't too difficult to find.

    11mm Danish RB cases canbe made from.45/70 by simply trimming to length.
    Same lead bullet, lesser powder charge.
    Good to go.

    That is a bizarrely fascinating stock with the work done to it at seemingly different skill levels. The four hole repair is interesting. I would like to know what the original owner's decoration scheme was about...

    See if it will chamber a .45-70 case or cartridge. Many of these were reamed out by gunsmiths after they were imported to the US to take .45-70. I have one of them and it is quite accurate with a black powder load and a hollow base .459 or .460 lead 405g bullet. I get the bullets from Buffalo Arms. Otherwise you could have it reamed or else use shortened cases.

    I have one which has not been reamed and it takes some 45/70 cases just fine. Nice and accurate also. i have to thin the rim on some cases using a lathe.
