    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! :)

    Why just last week I ordered an 1871 Richards-Mason 1860 Army conversion .45 with the 5.5" barrel! I'm counting the days til it comes in. As soon as I get it I'll post pics!

    1851 Uberti converted to .38 S&W with a "Legal Defender" kit back in the 1980s... rather primitive, but I like it that way...

    That is a nice Richards and Mason conversion you have there.

    Here is a copy of the earlier Richards Conversion

    [​IMG]

    And a shot of it with another conversion contemporary with it.

    [​IMG]

    The revolver is chambered for the 44 Colt, as were the originals and the Trapdoor is a 50-70.

    I agree! I'd like to know more/see more too. Brass bands, looks like a buckhorn or simple block sight. The hammer also looks like it's been tinkered with to fit the new breech. Do tell!

    I ordered an 1871 Richards-Mason Colt Army 1860 conversion with a 5.5" barrel and chambered in .45 Colt. They said a week to 10 days but it hasn't come in yet. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

    My ROA Sheriff model 3 1/2" barrel with a Kirst Konverter in 45 ACP.
    Gun smith work by Clements custom gun. I think David is number one for working on the ROA. I sent Clements my ROA 7 1/2" to have it cut to 5 1/2" with adjustable sights.....4 or 5 weeks.

    I like gingerbread; but not when it's an extra $185 per pistol :cuss:. It must be the Scotsman in me - that extra tarrif would have paid for two more C&Bs :what:.

    Dixie Gunworks has inlays, and I'm pretty sure that they have the snakes. You could do it yourself for a LOT less...

    Ok! Came in and finally got to pick 'er up today! I'm totally in love. Taking it out to shoot tomorrow! I have 250 .45 Colt loaded up with BP and ready to go!

    Uberti Richards-Mason 1871 Conversion 1860 Army. 5.5" barrel and chambered in .45 Colt.

    [​IMG]

    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!

    [​IMG]

    Here's the Conversion and it's older brother, the 2nd Gen Colt Army.

    [​IMG]

    And just for fun, the Springfield 1861 and Colt 1860 with the Springfield 1873 trapdoor and Conversion 1871

    Nothing like the Trapdoor and conversion revolver pair to accurately portray the old west. A much better pairing than the Winchester/Model P pairing of Hollywood. By the time the Hollywood pairing was common, the west had been tamed!
