Yes, you will end up with a 45cal 1-20 twist ML barrel. The breach is threaded for a breach plug and i believe a new crown is cut. There are a couple breach plug styles 2 choose from including one that uses a 45/70 type LRMP module. You can prime those modules in a common press with the 45/70 shell holder plate.

If you look up Arrow Head, it’s a $185 bucks to have a 45/70 barrel converted to a .45cal muzzeloader.

Check your state regs when deciding on an ignition system. It's been mentioned on other sites that some states that allow a 209 primer smokeless muzzleloader don't allow a LRMP muzzleloader.

The LRMP Plug looks and sounds good but dam those little primer modules are exspensive. A 110 bucks for a 20pk is a little ridiculous.
