Unless you just have a real burning need for those two barrels I'd sure not consider it a good deal for you. Herrett's seldom go for over about $125 and the 12" .45-70 would be a real serious kicker. If you really want one or the other I'd just buy it. If you really want to get rid of the frame then sell it and I think you'd come out better.
Lostchild, I meant to be responding to your thread, but somehow ended up starting a new one. See my answer to your question in the more recent thread (well, after posting this response, my inadvertent new thread will actually be older than this one... :? ) on this forum, titled "Frame for Barrels Trade?" Sorry for any confusion. Gary T.
