    The Marlins can be made to work with shorter cases through knowledgeable smithing. The 73s need a custom fitted stop in the carrier to limit feeding to single rounds, and then they won't work with 45 Colt lengths.

    I wish that Starline would also offer the Cowboy Special with the heads turned to 0.040 rim thickness and with the case OAL trimmed to 0.087" for the .455 Webley Mk 1, they would sell a bunch of them...

    I sent Starline an email several months ago asking if they had any plans to introduce .455 MK I or MK II brass but got no reply.
