    Saw that Uberti is making a conversion cylinder for cartridge for 1849 Pocket Pistol in .32 S&W. Does anyone know if there are any conversion cylinders made for any of the Colt pocket pistols to fire .38 spl cartridges?
    With the smaller size and less weight of the pocket pistol, it would seem to be an item that would attract attention. The original Colt complany sold far more pocket pistols than anything else they made.

    I saw the Remington Konverter for the Remington pocket pistol last year, but it dissapeared about a month later before I had a chance to get one.

    Not for the Pocket Models. There is a conversion for the 1861/1851 revolver but there is neither the needed length nor the diameter for a 38 caliber cartridge in the Pocket Models.

    Do the Kirst Konverters for the steel frame Remington NMA in .45LC allow full power loads, or are you restricted to reduced power "cowboy" loads?

    stay below 14,000psi (no +p loads!).
    i'm happily using 8gr of unique with 250gr rnfp (c850fps / 11,800psi).
    5.6 - 5.8gr of trailboss with 250gr rnfp is also pleasant shooting.
    cheers

    From the Howell web site:

    "The model OSRE63 is for the new steel frame 1863 Remington Pocket model from Pietta. It converts the .31 caliber ‘Remington’ to fire the .32 S&W cartridge and is for those who prefer the ‘Remington’ design over the “Colt’ style revolvers. Great for side matches or just shooting in general."
