I have heard of taking this barrel and turning it into smokeless .... I came across this website through google and saw a slufoot mentioned as a person to do this

Slufoot no longer does conversions. You can check with Luke at Smokelessmz.com or Jeff at Hankins Custom Rifles.

Do some research on the ignition source too. There is 209, LRMP, and Direct Ignition. Pros and cons to each.

I have one I had arrowhead convert a few years ago. I went bare 209 primer. Its a shooter, but just doesnt fit me by a long shot. Most break actions are just too short for me, and act like we are in a sparring match. I still usually shoot Blackhorn powder, even in the smokeless capable guns
