Originally I had this gun set aside for a customers .500 Linebaugh rifle conversion project. He decided to upgrade to a different action so this gun is available again.

The action is a 12ga French labeled but Belgian produced A&D boxlock with false sideplates. The action has bushed firing pins, sideclips, hidden third bite, and has Southgate ejectors. Fences have sculpted foliage, action body and acc are also engraved with hand cut English scroll.
The barrels are actually in fairly good condition, great wall thickness, no pitting, but there are a few small dents that can be repaired and barrels reblacked by me or on your accord. Chambers are 2 9/16", choked IMP MOD and Full, 28" tubes. Barrels have a sling swivel.

Not pictured is the condition of the stock...or better yet the condition it will be. Before it was claimed for a rifle conversion I was originally going to just refinish it and keep it, or sale it as a shotgun. The stock is in the middle of being refinished, but was set aside after being claimed for a project. If someone wants it as a shotgun I can finish the stock refinishing and checkering refreshing. I also removed the waffle pattern pad and put on a 1" red Pachmyr Old English pad.
Stock dimensions on request.

Asking $1,250 as described above/no barrel work, or $1500 with barrels repaired and blacked.
The action would make for a good rifle conversion project also. Options dictate price so please contact for a quote.

What would one spend to convert to a rifle?
Would a 458 Winchester or a 375HH be possible?

You would want to go with a rimmed caliber, .450 ne or .375 Flanged would work and be comparable to the calibers you listed. This gun would be a little more costly to convert since the stock is a straight grip, most people would want a pistol grip stock for a big bore. Restocking to fit, barrels converted plus the cost of the action would be around $7500
