    The ones from Kirst for the 44 seem to work ok, don't know why those wouldn't.

    Very neat! Would go perfectly with a Colt Model 1862 Pocket Navy that I have a hankerin' for. Now all I have to do is start saving up for one!

    Finally!!! Something for the Pocket Police and Navy. :thumbup:

    I never bought a Kirst conversion as it seems you have to grind away part of the recoil shield so I just buy the R&D conversions and poke the empties out with either a stick or my 'Old Timer' pocket knife.

    I'd love a pocket dragoon in .32 ACP.

    Anyone make that?

    Ive never seen one myself... .32 S&W, but not ACP. Cant see why it COULDNT be made though, any more then the .45ACP for our .44's

    Will be nice to see what Mike can some up with... He seems to be looking for opinions of what people would like, have you given him a heads up?

    Back to your .22 up there... I wonder about stability? What I mean is, if I loaded it up for some rabbit stew, then put my .44 back on, would it shoot the same later when I reinstalled it on the next camping trip or outing?

    Sure wish they wernt so expensive... Would be a nice bit of kit if it could be set up to keep POI each time...

    Don't know. A Dick Mason converted pocket .31/.32 ACP is a dream gun. Add to it the ejector rod. Lovely. Would love it.
