I too had a 45-70 made on a Mauser action. Mine was a Siamese Mauser. It works well because it was made for a rimmed cartridge to start with.

I had it rebarreled with a Shaw barrel. I tried to get by on the cheap by using the original stock. I think that was a mistake.

The rifle worked fine and was accurate but kicked like a mule. I think that metal buttplate combined with the relatively short stock was mainly responsible for the recoil.

Ended up trading it off.

Man you must have an iron shoulder. My Argentinian 7mm Mauser will make you sorry after about 25 rounds!
