I'm just wondering if it would be possible to run my blackside 45 acp on my 45/70 gibbs rifle any thoughts on this idea?

I think you'll certainly destroy the suppressor and possible injure yourself.  I have one of those cans, and it has an aluminum body that will not withstand rifle caliber pressure.  You might look at offerings by Bowers, Yankee Hill and others.  The first two have wonderful customer service and are less expensive than other choices.

As a side note, these questions are best answered by the manufacturer.  There are surprising nuances to construction that affect performance across calibers.

I would suggest that you not rely on internet boards for info like this when the manufacturer is still around and making cans. I'm sure its not an unreasonable question you're asking as the 45/70 is not a high pressure round nor particularly high volume. If its loaded to the low range 45/70 standards you're looking at 29,000psi  so check with Gemtech and you'll get a good educated answer you can depend on.

Hope that helps
