I would shoot one of those ... with somebody else's hands.
Besides weighing the best part of what a rifle does, you lose enough out of the shorter barrel and cylinder gap that it's not all that bad.

How hard would it be to convert a Walker to 45-70? I'm in manufacturing could you just drill and mill the BP cylinder?
Here're a couple of pics showing a Century Mfg .45-70 sixgun (which is what I'm thinking Jaguarxk120 was referring to in his post in the thread...) next to a repro Walker for scale (just ignore that newfangled bottomfeeder in the one pic):




Looks like just a mite bit o' difference in cylinder size...
