Here is the address to get the carrier.  They may have info on who still does the conversion.  I’m not a ‘73 smith, so I don’t know if you need more than a carrier and barrel swap.

The 1860 Henry does not require this device. A ten-cent set screw can be added to the carrier to act as a cartridge stop.  Guns with side loading will require the spring stop, as shown in the link.

Yes a bit more. Barrel cut back and chamber cut.

You might take a look over on the WB forum, I think there has been some discussion in the past.  And I'm sort of thinking Goatneck Clem might have been one who did that conversion before he passed, not sure, though (not that that helps you).

Cody did Goatneck's conversions. We had several conversations about them before Goatneck passed.

Cody is the only one I know of doing the conversion to 45 ACP.
