    Ok folks bare with me I have an itch and cant scratch it.

    I have been looking all weekend for a 1853 enfield conversion or a martini in .577 snider. No real luck I looked every where and didnt want to pay 1500 or so n gunbroker.

    Where any other guns made in .577 snider?

    I think the Enfield might be about it. After all the Snider was designed to make use of the surplus Enfield muzzle loaders just like the trapdoor was for Springfield ML's. (The US stuck with the basic design all the way up to the introduction of the Krag. Britain went to the Martini Henry shortly after the Snider.
    There may be some high end double rifles, etc. in .577, but they will be even more expensive than the Enfields.

    Not currently. They occasionally show up at gunshows around here, usually priced $800-900 or so. I haven't seen one in a while however.
