Did this video help you?

Nick Nickerson: It is OK to covert as long as you load cartridges with black powder or Pyrodex. They Converted these revolvers back when they used them. It is not a new idea.

bobigny 93: how much cost?

papawx3: Shooting round ball {not basketball} is just plain fun, but when you want to kick it up to the next level up, and maybe go hunting, nothing beats the cartridge. It too is allot of fun. Just make sure your case is full, with no air between the powder and bullet, this is a different game from smokeless! I use corn meal to top off my cases {unless I am using triple seven.

Roger D.: I have the Ruger Old Army revolver in stainless steel, I found one of those cylinder at at pawn shop never been used..
 I gave 150.00 $ for it, thought that was a good price, I had been wanting to get one but not for the 300.00 that they were priced at from Taylor and CO. It is good little trick, the one you got looks just like the one I found..and I have the Pietta but I have the one with the brass frame, I think you will like it..have fun, now i'm getting rigged up to use the wax bullets, I bet if the old cowboys could see all the stuff we shooters have done and the conversions we have come up with just to shoot and not even doing it to survive or work they would laugh OL...at us shooters today, think us crazy....

Bob Sullivan: Nice video....I had a problem with my Pietta 1858 Stainless Remington with the hammer failing to securely index the safety notches in between the cap nipples. The cylinder would still turn even with the hammer nose in the notch. This, of course, would permit the cap to be accidentally indexed under the hammer which would allow the gun to fire if the hammer was bumped. I found the following link on the Remington 1858 Forum which demonstrates the simple fix.

Hope this helps. Now you can safely rest the hammer between the cap nipples and have it stay put. Now you can load all six holes on the muzzleloader cylinder!

Twilight Shooter: www.macsreloading.com  sells 45 ACP lead bullet ammo , so you won't blow up your gun !!!!!!

Seth Tyrssen: There are excellent reasons for this. Primarily, you end up with a gun complete with no paperwork. Which might be darn useful some day.

Ron Lasting: I've got the exact same cylinder. I have the 1858 Uberti Remington Revolving Carbine. I love being able to shoot 45 Colt.

hot2warm: It's removable so it really doesn't mess up the gun at all. It just gives you more options and I like to have options

eddie mccomas: why mess up a blackpowder pistol...thats why its blackpowder..just buy a cartrage gun.i have a colt 1851 and a remington 1858 there no way i would do this...i like blackpowder better.....im old school.

michael waraksa: very edifying demo on the conversion system

shananagans5: I got that exact conversion. I was initially concerned because the walls of the cylinder are so thin but my SASS friends say it's fine & it has worked like a champ. I am extremely pleased with it. The cap & ball thing is fun for a bit but it becomes a chore real quick. With the conversion & the New Model Army it's almost like cheating. All the fun of black powder without the work & the misfires. As far as the thin walls,I just remind myself black powder isn't a 65,000 psi AR & all is well. :)

Cowboy4737: Not a bad video but you left out important things like how much was the cylinder,How was the ordering and shipping ordeal from the compony??? And I rely wanted to see you drop it in place to see fitment??? I have the pietta 1858 sherrif model 44 cal 5- 1/2 barrel and am thinking of getting one when I don't feel like making a round every time I want to make holes in paper!!! Thanks in advance for any more info!!!

JR Stoelting: Got an R&D conversion cylinder for my colt. Not as convenient as with the Remington. Disassembly any time I need to re-load. It's still fun, though.

hot2warm: yes, I have 2 videos of it in use. "Pietta's Remington 1858 'New Army' Revolver Shooting 1" and "Pietta's Remington 1858 'New Army' Revolver Shooting 2"

GRMGR1: Have you had an opportunity to test fire it yet?

Dana Webb: Be careful, I would use trail boss it is the best smokeless powder don't use 700-X. doesn't fill the case and can cause over pressure and damage. Google; blew up a '58 Remmy conversion

les faust: yup its pricy,,i payed 300 bucks for almost the same stanless steal cylinder,,,,, for almost same pietta revolver from cabella,,,,,,

blastforyou: too pricey, cost more than i paid for my 58
