Kind of a "fantasy" piece, but felt like it needed some POP to compete with the Colts.........

Here is a list of mods:

Complete removal of markings
Addition of inspector initials
Reshaping of "sail" and slot added for the transitional look
Checkering of hammer and cylinder pin wings
Nickel plated trigger guard
Swiveling lanyard loop
Kirst unported Konvertor ring (again the early or transitional look)
Fluted Kirst cylinder in 44 Colt
High gloss bluing
Action work

I give up. What slot did you add?
I like it a lot. I'd love to have one in .44 Russian (if feasible).

Removing material on the top of the rammer creates a slot between the rammer and the barrel, so it looks like the transitional models.

As answered by junkman 01 above, the rammer or sail has a fake slot (where it meets the barrel) and is reprofiled to be closer to original (no hump at the front end).

44 russian (with an inside lubed bullet) would require a .429 or so inside barrel diameter. It's really not feasable to line the Remington barrel, too thin, but a new barrel could be fashioned or a 36 caliber one rebored.
