    Copy that. That's what I thought it was, but the gauge threw me.

    pretty nifty...is the 1863 pocket conversion available as a kit, or do we send our pistolas in for the work?

    I got that it's a .22 Kirst conversion, I'm wondering what .22 Kirst is. Is it a conversion by Kirst to .22 LR, is it a .22 percussion muzzleloading conversion of the revolver?


    I guess I'll just look it up on the onlines.

    One thing you can do with the Kirst .22 conversion. They need to make it available with a longer barrel though. I talked to Jay and he said they can do any length barrel I want, but it's $10. an inch I think he said. I think I'm gonna try to just install a long barrel liner in place of the little stub barrel thats on it now. They say that even with the stub you get pretty good accuracy, but since I got a scope on my little carbine, I want to have maybe a full length barrel. If I do that I bet I can get 2" groups at 100 yards, or maybe even better. Guess it's my next project, and it should actually be pretty easy. I'll keep you posted.

    Well.........it ain't exactly that easy.

    This is to help explain to those that do not have one but may be thinking of getting a 22 Kirst conversion.

    The barrel block (the square in front of the cylinder) has an affixed .22 calibre barrel that is stepped (that actually adds about 3/8") in order to wiggle it in through the cylinder window.

    There is an existing patent that covers a barrel that screws through the barrel and into a block like this. The Kirst/Strite does not infringe on that patent but there would be no way to make it "longer" because you cannot weed it in through the window if it is.

    Yes you could line the barrel (meaning permanently attached) and into the block but the block would also become permanent which kind of defeats the interchangability concept that this conversion was designed for.

    Of course making the whole thing screw together yourself would probably not be seen as patent infringement unless you started selling that design.

    This is my "Texas" revolving .22 carbine as offered by EMF some years back.

    You could always have Jay line the barrel and make you a full length cylinder to use with that Konvertor ring.............

    If you had a liner that screwed into the block and a nut at the end ofthe barrel to tension it like the Dan Wessons, it seems it would be a real tac driver, since the tensioned barrel liner is the reason DW used to advertize them as the most accurate guns out of the box. I've owned 3 and shot many and they deliver on that statement.

    Are those conversions useable in a brass framed Remmy?

    Wonder if you could thread the stepped down portion of the barrel and have an internal thread on a barrel extension?

    I wouldn't recommend having a seam in the middle of a barrel, not even in a 22...........
