I bought a nice used Beretta Stampede in .45LC and was browsing other single-action revolver manufacturers websites and came upon this:

http://www.emf-company.com/single-action-revolver-accessories.htm

toward the bottom of the list is a description for cylinders for 1873 SAA models...$105 including fitting..

could I get a .45 acp cylinder fitted for my Beretta Stampede?

I have waited and waited to find a Ruger Blackhawk combo in .45lc/.45acp for nearly 3 years to no avail...is it possible to build a combo with another manufacturer's cylinder?

(Scratches head)

It would probably work. It would have to be fitted of course but...OK, Beretta bought Uberti. The older Uberti non-transfer-bar guns could undoubtedly eat that cylinder (with fitting of course). So when Beretta ordered the new subdivision to do a transfer-bar gun, how many changes would Uberti have made to the existing design?

I can't think of anything they would need to tweak that would alter the *cylinder*. Hammer/trigger group, frame, heck yeah. But cylinder? They *could*, yeah, but why? Figure they're going to save money, recycle what they can.

Yeah, I'd try it!

I'll have to contact them to find out if the transfer-bar firing mechanism would be a problem or if it's designed to work with hammer-mounted firing pin guns...theoretically I understand what you are saying about a cylinder is a cylinder and should be no problem...but then there's the liability that they may not do it for any other brand outside of EMF:scrutiny:

The transfer bar safety wouldn't be a problem, but the way the ratchet is machined might. The ratchet has to match the style of hand that used in a particular make of revolver. Also the overall length could be critical, because if the new cylinder was longer or shorter then the original one you could end up with an excessive cylinder/barrel gap, or not be able to get the new cylinder into the frame window.

As I understand it, EMF cylinders are supposed to fit their own line(s) of revolvers and 1st and 2nd generations of Colt's. If you have anything else in mind you'd better ask first.

A lot of the Italians just used "Colt style" hands.

EMF won't fit it, no way, but if they'll sell you the cylinder some other gunsmith probably will. That's what I meant, sorry for not saying so.
