Just a place to post pictures of your cartridge converted BP revolvers. Post pics of a revolver you converted or a pics of your revolvers that were once cap-n-ball but now capable of firing cartridges. Don't forget to tell us what we are looking at. No membership list maintained. I have a feeling that Hoof Hearted is going to rule this roost! :)

How about the original Colt conversion...

In 1871, Colt received an Army contract to convert one thousand Model 1860 Army percussion revolvers to use the .44-caliber centerfire cartridge being manufactured at the Frankford Arsenal. In 1872, Colt began filling civilian orders for thier metallic cartridge revolvers. These were an open-top conversion of the 1851 Navy.

Can't see it well but it's stamped 1871 on the barrel just in front of the cylinder. Under the cylinder is stamped "Pat. July 25, 1871" and just under that is "Pat. July 2, 1872". ".45 Cal" is stamped on the trigger guard frame. The top of the barrel is stamped "Taylors & CC, Winchester VA"

Uberti put their maker stamp and 45 cal under the barrel as usual!

Hmmm, really surprised thus far. Thought there'd be a lot more folks out there with conversion revolvers. That is, either cap-n-ball revolvers with conversion cylinders, or cap-n-ball revolvers that folks had permanently converted, or revolvers that came already converted but were based on cap-n-ball designs. Only 13 so far...........

Yes, that is the one. Interesting but not my cup of tea. I refer the Colt stlye of revolver. I have used the Remingtons and they do not feel as comfortable in my hands aas the 60s or 61s.

I did convert one of the little Pocket Remingtons to 22 Long Rifle. It must have been in the 70s. Sleeved the barrel and cylinder, cut the chambers and used the hammer unmodified if I recall correctly. The trigger gave me fits so I replaced it an installed a triggerguard from a full sized Remington. As I remember, it was a bit of work but it went bang each and every time I pulled the trigger and there was a loaded cartidge under the hammer.

heres some pics of my Pietta 1860 Army .44 C&B, conversion to .45 Colt via the Kirst Konverter. Its becoming my hobby messing with this gun. So far i have just done the cartridge conversion, deblued it, and as i havent had the money or the time to get some "real" faux ivory grips (or something equally interesting and nice to look at) i simply sanded and painted the grips with ivory paint. i hope i havent pissed off any purists out there! my future plan with this piece is to attempt to add the grip frame, triggerguard, and grips of the 1877 Colt Thunderer/Lightning, creating the wonderous 1860 Thunderer! lol (this will be done via a cheap original lightning parts gun off gunbroker thats incomplete but has the parts i actually need, plus some grips i found there as well) i opted not to get a cartridge ejector assembly, mainly because at the time i didnt have the funds, but now i just enjoy the look of the original loading lever. i have been toying with the idea of throwing on a 3-inch barrel but not sure if i will pursue that.

i apologize for the poor image quality as these were taken with my cellphone. if anyone is interested, i may follow up with pics once i get the thunderer/lightning parts put on (if i can even get them to fit...)

Stupid question, but you guys would know.
Is there a conversion for the '58 Army that DOES NOT involve permanent modification (i.e. drop-in) to the recoil shield, loading lever (for ejector rod, etc) where you could drop in the conversion, go shooting, then come home and switch back to C&B?
I don't know much about these, so figured I'd ask.

November 24, 2011, 07:41 AM
Hoof Hearted,

That is an ASM. When I got it the internal were quite soft. I replaced nearly everything by modifying Uberti and other parts as ASM was gone. Eventually I realized the hammer was also shot, so an 1860 hammer was "volunteered" and modified. I believe each and every interanl part has been replaced except the screws!

For some reason the second photo was deleted.

Here it is again, the Richards and an 1866 Trapdoor I reworked with an 1841 rifle lock and stock.

Hoof Hearted,

AFF = American Frontier Firearms

A conversion gunsmith like myself named Dave Anderson established that company. He was an enterprising fellow who got ASM to make parts for him then he assembled pistols from those parts. His fit and finish was quite nice and the pistols were attractive without any importers markings and the American Frontier Firearms legend on the top of the barrel they also sported real bone/charcoal color case. He made a Richards 1851 (I have one) a Navy gripped Open Top (I have one) and an 1860 type one/type two mixed up pistol without a rebated cylinder (I have one that he tried to give the illusion of a rebate to). There may have been other models/variations but I have not seen them.

After he stopped ASM started importing the conversions through Traditions. I don't know how or why that came to be but I bet the story is interesting.

Personally I like the early ASM conversions and their 1873's. I would be interested in any parts or whole guns offered to me, working or not.

That's not a cartridge conversion, it's the 1871-1872 Open Top model. Colt's first dedicated big bore cartridge revolver. It was built on a dedicated frame and was not a percussion model converted to fire metallic cartridges.


I ordered an 1871 Richards-Mason Colt Army 1860 conversion with a 5.5" barrel and chambered in .45 Colt.
Another misnomer. If it's a Richards-Mason, it's an 1860. 1871 is merely a patent date, of which there are several.

This is another shot of my revolving carbine conversion, only with the Kirst .45 ACP conversion installed. Shown with the carbine is his little brother, which started life as a new Uberti 1858 5.5" .44 Cal. cap & ball revolver. I love Uberti's quality when it comes to their cap & ball revolvers, but I just can't leave well enough alone. I did my antiquing same as the carbine, and cut the recoil shield for the conversion. Right now it's set up with the .22 conversion, while the carbine is set up with the .45 ACP conversion and the ejector.
What I need to make this whole set complete would be another ejector so I didn't have to choose which one to have it on, and an additional cylinder in .45 Colt. The centerfire back plate I have will work with either the .45 ACP cylinder I now have, and would also work with a .45 Colt cylinder if I got one, so I wouln't need to get another back plate. But that additional cylinder would give me .45 Colt and also .45 Schofield. That would give me a lot of options!
Either the revolver or the carbine could be set up to shoot; .22 rimfire (I won't even list all the options that could cover!), .44 round or conical cap & ball, .45 ACP, .45 Colt, and .45 Schofield. I guess I could even add .45 Auto Rim to the list, although I don't think I've even seen one of those cartridges!
As a practicle matter I suppose that if I were depending on these pieces in a serious way, I would probably keep the revolver set up as a .22 and the carbine in either .45 ACP or .45 Colt if I had that cylinder.
By the way. I chose the .45 ACP conversion over the .45 Colt on the advise of Jay Strite, a very nice guy who took the time to answer my questions and explain his answers clearly. He stated that they had done a lot, if not most, of their testing with the carbine as opposed to the revolver, and that the .45 ACP was the most accurate of the .45 calibers tested in the carbine. Additionally, the cost of .45 ACP is a lot less than the cost of .45 Colt ammo. I can tell you that, while it takes a little looking around to find .45 ACP with a lead bullet as opposed to jacketed, once you find them, it will cost you about 30% to 40% less than .45 Colt. I ended up with Ultramax and although I can't remember exactly what I paid for it, it was substantially less than any .45 Colt I could find. It aint traditional, but you can afford to shoot it. Of course once you have some brass saved up, I would guess they would be pretty close to the same cost as far as reloading goes. Anyway, like I said, I'm going to get an extra cylinder in .45 Colt, than I can shoot both.
Well, that's my 3 cents. I sure do like looking at all the fine conversions everybody has done on these pages. My own style is that I like to make my pieces look like thay are well cared for 130 year old pieces, but the one's that look like they are brand new with 100% finish are absolutly beautiful too, and they give one the sense of entering a gun store back in the day and buying one of those brand new conversions. I gotta tell ya', there is something about the conversions that really grabs me. When I was a kid I would have never given it any thought, but now when I see these pieces, it just gives me a true feeling of history. And the best part for us is that we can hold that history in our hand and use them. How many hobbies offer that combination of historic education, mechanical knowledge, and potential skill building and exitement all rolled into one!?! I feel sorry for these kids who know nothing more than the electronic stimulation provided by video games. To sleep under the stars next to a camp fire with your dog and your revolver; to wake up shivering and start that fire up again and make hot coffee and eggs. Than to spend the day shooting with friends......I'm sorry to say that most kids will never know what it's like. Well, time for this old Cowboy to head off into the sunset.

Hey Busyhands!
I hadn't seen your single shot conversion before, but I have often thought of making something similar for the 1851 Navy, only 'cause there are so many of them and they can be had so cheap sometimes. Could you provide some more pictures and show how it is used? You know, how it is loaded and unloaded and installed in your gun? Between the two of us we might be able to come up with a design for other revolvers.
Like I said, I had though about this because it seems like a single shot could be done pretty simple, even you made it so it was installed and locked into position in your gun frame, and set up with a breech that opened and closed to allow reloading without taking the whole thing apart. Please post more info, or email me directly at smparkinson@hotmail.com

I can't be posting too much info due to liability issues, however I'll be making a video real soon of me shooting this. I went and got 13 fifty round boxes of .22 LR, and a metal target so it will be a good video. Believe me, it's so dang simple you wouldn't believe it. No moving parts unless you count the barrel that slips into the existing barrel. Or I guess you could maybe count the bullet itself as a moving part if you really wanted to.

I too have been on the lookout for a low-cost conversion cylinder. I think the used ones would be a lot cheaper, Then again they have the cylinder itself without the loading gate and breech assembly for sale that costs about $110 or so. I figure I'm a good machinist/gunsmith that I might actually be able to make the breech, firing pin, gate, and ejector myself.

I think you could do ok with just the cylinder. You can actually skip the pivoting gate, whith would be one of the more difficult pieces to build. Lots of original conversions back in the day didn't have gates. In fact, a lot of revolvers that weren't conversions were designed without gates. I cut my backplate for my 1858 .22 conversion so I didn't have to remove the cylinder to load and unload, and I didn't bother trying to make a gate. The way the cylinder indexes, shells are very unlikely to fall out, unless you point the barrel streight up as you are cocking the revolver. As far as the back plate with fireing pin goes, As long as you had the thickness correct, it would just be a matter of securing it to the recoil shield and fabricating a firing pin set up. Although I've never done that for a conversion, I have done that type of firing pin from scratch in the past for miniature cannon I've built and it was pretty simple. In fact, if you looked carefully, you could probably find the components you needed from Brownells, and just drill and install the pieces in you breech plate. You have to take your time and be patient to get you position right, but it aint rocket science. The other thing to look into is some of the conversion components available from VTI that are actually replacement parts for some of the Italian conversion revolvers. I know that some of the people out there have done just that, although from what I understand there isn't much cost savings and they certainly done provide a "drop in" solution like the Kirst units. There are a lot of different ways to go in these projects, and it is just limited by your money and imagination. The least expensive ways are certainly the ones that provide the greatest challange, but they also probably provide the best opportunity for developing skills and new techniques. I know I'll be trying other projects that require a little more than just altering an existing conversion unit. Probably with some parts from VTI most likely, along with fabricating some of my own pieces.

The ring and gate assembly for the Kirst Converter Cylinder for the Walker and the Dragoons are the same. The cylinders are different lengths obviously, but the gate interchanges. Since I will only shoot one at a time, I only bought the bare cylinder for my Walker. It only takes a few seconds to do the switch. You can e-mail Kirst and they will verify interchangability for you.....:D

I am the installer for Kirst (if you purchase installation it ships to me) and yes the Walker and Dragoon use the same Konverter ring. You can actually put a Walker cylinder in a Dragoon by cutting back the forcing cone area of the barrel also.....
I have done these for myself and customers.

I have also removed the "wing" portion of the loading gate for customers who did not want to port their revolvers. It was mentioned above that "gunsmith" or frontier conversions often had no gate with just a port or no port and a solid ring (there are documented factory Dragoon conversions like this).

I have pics of a Dragoon with a Walker cylinder on my website:

Here is my Pietta 58 Remmy Target Model with Kirst CC. The C&B cylinders can be changed so quickly, I bought a couple spares. Recoil shield Loading gate entry was easily done with large rat tail file, followed with Dremel drum sanding of different grits.

I will say the Kirst CC locks up tighter than any revolver I have ever owned. Do not think cylinder end play is over 0.001 and the B/C gap is cigarette paper tight. With Trail Boss under a 185 grain SWC it is scary accurate, but cannot use black powder because the B/C gap is so tight it binds up after just one shot.

25 yards from rest.

Well now I have the Kirst Remington 1858 .22 conversion unit that I use in my Uberti with a steel frame. Although I use it in a steel frame, it's my understanding that the .22 unit is the only one that Kirst says is OK to use in a brass frame gun. The muzzle end of that snubbie barrel sure looks to me like it might be just a little bit bigger than a .22, so what is the deal? Is it now OK to use the large .45 centerfire conversion in a brass framed gun?
Certainly a closed frame design like the 1858 Remington will take a lot more stress than one of the Colt's Open Top designs, but I thought that Kirst still advises that brass frames will stretch with any of the centerfire conversions installed. I'm sure you gave it some thought and based your choice on factors such as number of rounds expected to be fired and loading those loads down to minimize pressure. I know you are not the first to do it with a brass framed 1858, since I saw an internet gunsmith project of a Kirst unit being installed on a brass 1858 Remington.
BY THE WAY. THAT IS A VERY COOL LOOKING PIECE AND I THINK GIVING THE FRAME THE ONCE OVER WITH BRASS BLACK WILL REALLY GIVE IT AN INTERESTING LOOK! I have done some pretty neat effects with brass black; one of the best was to mix the brass black with a couple of drops of oil,(don't mix too well!) and appy by dabing it on with a rag. If done right you can get a sort of multi colored psudo case hardened look to it. Try this on scrap brass, and experiment with different application techniques.
That would have been quite an ace in the hole back in the day. Not much bigger than a Remington double derringer, but a lot more rounds of a much better cartridge. Good medicine for snakes of all kinds!

I had one of the little Remington .31's I picked up 2nd hand on Gunbroker. It was a neat little piece, but it was one of the ones imported by Traditions, and I guess they get a better price from the manufacturer by going with a lower level of fit and finnish. I wouldn't have minded the fact that it came up short on the looks department, but it was real rough mechanically. Felt like it was packed with sand. Didn't always index correctly, sometimes it would just lock up and refuse to go past half cock, and even at it's best it had the worst trigger on any revolver I ever had.
I think it was made by Pietta, but I've seen Pietta .31 Remingtons that looked and felt pretty good. But again, it was marked Traditions and I've seen more than a few Traditions marked guns that left something to be desired. That being said, I have seen several of these little Remingtons that were nicely finished and functioned smoothly. And it's such a nice little package that I would sure like one made up as a cartridge revolver.
Now I'm a big fan of the Kirst units, and I have two of them for my Uberti 1858. One is in .45ACP and I also have the .22 unit, and both function perfectly in both my 5.5" revolver and also my Remington carbine.
I had spoken to Jay Strite back before I bought either one of them, and we talked about several other conversions as well. I know in our conversation we discussed a conversion for the Pocket Remington in .32, and it seems to me that although they are not listed in their regular offerings, he told me that they had made up a few cylinders for them and at least at that time, he was offering them for sale. It's been a while, but I am thinking he said the conversion was around $350. with the customer supplying the revolver. I also seem to remember that it wasn't a "drop in" conversion, but you would have to send him your piece for some fitting and smithing. Again, it was a while back, but I could swear he also mentioned that they could do a .22 rimfire conversion for the little remington by lining the barrel along with the cylinder replacement and smithing. I,m not sure, but I think he may have said it was around the $400. mark. And I got the impression that if you sent him your gun for conversion, he would give it a pretty good overhaul inside and out. I got the feeling that he wouldn't put his name on anything he wasn't proud of, and that you would probably end up with a one of a kind piece that would be worth more than you had into it as soon as you got it back from him.
I've been thinking about it a lot lately, and I think it may be time to sell some of my other stuff, give Jay another call, and have him do one of his custom jobs for me. I think it would be a good investment and a darn nice shootin' iron to boot. And as a .22, it would probably get used a lot. Heck, using those quiet Super Kolibri's BB/CB type .22's yopu could shoot it in your back yard without bothering the neighbors!

Is this a .32 or a .22?
The Traditions brass framed Remmy Pockets are ASM manufactured.
The problem is usually in the ratchet area of the cylinder although I have seen some with issues of bolt height which can cause very hard cocking at the end of the hammer travel in order to get the bolt leg to fall of the cam.

Mine is a 22 and that is a Kirst conversion on the same traditions ASM revolver that you had. It is more work to make work nice than, say a 1858 conversion but it does work well. There are some problems with where Kirst has cut the stop notches and you have to work around that.

The 32 S&W is not a good chioce in this platform. I was not involved in that choice but Walt and Jay did use me to try to figure out it's shortcomings and it has them. The majority of the ones sold would uncock upon firing and the bolt would rest between notches. Their fix of trying to increase bolt spring tension did not work. My fixes do but they all rotate back to the same issues of ammo (the bullet is WAY undersize in the bore). More pressure is the easiest fix either through a different chambering or in the case of the Kirst adopted fix which is to tell customers to load a full case of 3f BP. This is an odd thing to tell someone who buys a product that has the warning of "no warranty" with handloads.

The 22 does work and of course it is not a drop in.

I just picked up a Uberti 3rd Model Dragoon with an R&D conversion cylinder in .45 Colt. Man, this thing is a beast! It needs a bit of sight work as it was shooting a might high (10"-12") at 10 yards.

I was shooting a load of 6 grains of Unique behind a 250 grain lead bullet. With this load, recoil was virtually non-existent due to the weight of the pistol.

I have several other cap n ball guns, so I never actually shot this one with caps n balls, went ahead and removed the ram-rod as it only got in the way.

Hey Dave Markowitz,
How does one go about installing the factory ejector?
I would venture to guess that a gunsmith needs to dovetail the frame?

I am debating the merits of a factory conversion vs R&D cylinder vs Kurst converter.....vs Kurst converter with ejector?

If one has a Kurst without the ejector...how the heck do you eject empty brass?

So many questions......:o

Dave Markowitz
June 18, 2012, 01:41 PM
For the Kirst gated conversion, you need to grind a loading port in the right side recoil shield. Percussion revolvers are made from pretty soft steel, so you can do it with a file and/or a Dremel tool.

The Remington factory-style ejector from Kirst replaces the original cylinder base pin, and requires you to cut a notch in the loading lever. Here are some close-ups.

Here (http://www.hobbygunsmith.com/Archives/June04/Feature.htm) is a pretty good article on the procedure.

If you do a gated conversion but do not install an ejector, it's not hard to remove the empties. These guns are restricted to low pressure loads. When I shot it last weekend I was able to get many of the empties to fall out by elevating the muzzle and tapping the butt against the carpeted table holding all my shooting gear. I could also pull the empties out easily with a fingernail.

Were you shooting Black Powder loads? I'm curious how the Remmie Kirst/Pietta combo does with BP. I read somewhere that the cylinder/barrel gap was very tight and bound up after just one shot in one persons account.

I'm leaning toward the Kirst, but would like to shoot Goex loaded cartridges.

I was shooting Black Hills CAS .45 Colt loads, with smokeless powder. B/C is tight, although I have not measured it. I will say that this gun locks up tighter than any other revolver I have, including a few Rugers and a bunch of S&Ws. There is no cylinder play when it's locked.

Since the thread is already resurrected, here is a video of my Uberti Remington New Army with a R&D .45 Colt conversion cylinder.

nacpUoenyro

I get best results with very light loads of Wano PPP or Swiss #2. A typical load is 1518 grains of Swiss #2, a cardboard wad, a grease cookie, another cardboard wad, semolina filler and a .454" roundball crimped on top. Sometimes I omit the wad and grease cookie and use soft lubrication over the chamber mouths especially in warm weather. I've been less successful with conical bullets.

http://www.svartkrutt.net/articles/bilder/rd/r%26d1stor.jpg

Here's two of my targets from the Nordic Championships in 2010 in Orivesi, Finland. We shoot 13 shots at 25 metres at two targets and the best 10 is counting. I think I ended up with 92 points and a bronze in this one. Same load as mentioned above, with T/C Bore Butter over the chamber mouths.

Sure!

The first one is an original Remington New Army that someone, somewhere ruined by drilling/boring through the cylinder rendering it useless. I shoot it with an R&D conversion cylinder now.

The second one is a Millington Type III conversion on a Pietta in 44 Colt Heel base. It has a handmade "one piece" cylinder (the originals had two piece, sweated cylinders).

alot of beautiful and interesting pistols
forgive a new guy question but can these shoot modern smokeless ammo? or are they strictly BP loads? And are these BP rounds what i see referred to as "Cowboy Loads"
Thanks

Oyvind and others - how does the Remington act with BP loads in conversion cylinders? The Uberti I used to have would bind after every cylinder full unless I took the cylinder out and cleaned it. I loved the way it shot and handled though.

Which Uberti were you using? I have a fairly new Uberti Type II Richards conversion and it works great with BP (that's all I've ever shot in it).

Can I see more detail on the hammer and the cylinder of this conversion? What is the history on it, and is it safe to shoot?

I'm really enjoying my Cimarron Type II Richard's Conversion. The rig is from El Paso Saddlery.
