What are your opinions regarding changing the chamber of a rifle from 12.7x44R (CF) to .50 Government (.50-70 or .50-70 Sharps)?

My rolling block was made a "sporter" by cutting the barrel to 30 inches, removing the original sights, soldering cheap sights to the barrel, soldering a cheap sling swivel to the bottom of the barrel, and cutting the forearm. As you can see it has no "historical" value so changing the chamber would probably increase it's value. :-)
