If it's an SB2 Ultra Slug Hunter which is on a 10ga frame, a 45-70 barrel won't fit right on it, it's only made for 10ga based barrels.

It's a 12 ga.
He had a 10 for $225.00 but I wanted the receiver for the 45/70. If the barrel doesn't fit, I'll sell one of the frames. It looks like it will though.

The SN is HU337XXX

According to the accessory barrel page, it would be eligable (Starts with an H).

The 12ga SB2 shotgun frame isn't the same as an SB2 rifle frame, it won't work with any rifle barrel, the barrel swell is ~.100" larger on the 10ga based barrels, if you read the accessory barrel page carefully, you'll see the 12ga rifled bull barrel(USH) is listed under the 10ga section.

I did read it carefully Tim and I don't think a 10 ga barrel will fit on this frame.
If it doesn't fit, I'll sell one of them so how about not wetting on my parade!

Sorry Peternap, but the rain done fell, the 20ga USH will fit on a SB2 rifle or SB1 frame, but not the 12ga, the SB2 USH frame is heat treated investment cast alloy steel just like the SB2 rifle frame, but the side walls are much thinner to accomodate the 12ga USH and 10ga barrels, overall dimensions are the same otherwise.

Then why won't the frame accept a 10 ga barrel?

Probably the same reason other barrels may not work, they aren't one size fits all. If you compare the side walls of either an SB1 shotgun or SB2 rifle frame to the SB2 shotgun frame you'll see the difference.

The 10ga frame has the typical large shotgun firing pin too, the top edges of the side rails are thinner which leaves a bigger gap between the 1.1" standard barrel chamber swell, the 10ga barrels have a 1.2" chamber swell.

Having seen pics of his gun collection and read about his rechambers and reloading experiences I decided a long time ago that Tim knows of what he speaks.

The bad new is that your 45-70 barrel aint gonna fit your SB2 10 Guage frame that is used on the 12 Guage Ultra hunter. The good news is you got a pretty good deal on your ultra hunter. If I were you I'd try to sell one of your Ultrs hunters in the GBO classifieds and there are SB2 Rifle, not 10 guage frames for sale there often. Even if your 45-70 barrel were to somehow fir the SB2 10 guage frame that is used on the ultra hunter 12 guage, the firing pin is larger diamiter and the primers will flow into the firing pin hole with the hotter loads.

It done rained.
