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....
Scott Kane: I'm so glad you showed what it looks like installed into the revolver it
showed how well it matches the frame
bobby wasabi: I forgot which one of the conversion cylinders load 6 shots
webrat55: You say 'single shot' several times...what you mean to say is 'Single
Aramis1750: My REMINGTON COPY 44. CAL. is it a brass framed, what you recomend?
webrat55: Sorry....I jumped the gun, bad habit.
ruby kaufman: Could we see this in the pistol, that would really be good to see, thanks.
BaronRogoff1: Really neat and comprehensive breakdown. I would like to get one for my 58'
Remington. I already have plenty of black powder revolvers so it's really
neat that you can do a conversion and have more shooting options.
Crystal Clear: Nice video. Do you reload??? If not, you should of went with a 45ACP
cylinder. Just my 2 pennies. Good luck. I have heard bad things about the 6
shot cylinders. Am I wrong? Is it working well for you?
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
Twilight Shooter: www.macsreloading.com sells 45 ACP lead bullet ammo , so you won't blow up
your gun !!!!!!
pjeter49: Hi, I have an Italian made copy of a navy (Colt?) .36 cap and ball pistol
that I bought back in the 70's. It has a brass frame. I would like to
convert it to cartridge firing, not so much for shooting bullets, but
blanks (for fast draw competition) Do you know of any companies that make
such an item... and what kind of money did you have to spend? Thank you, I
enjoyed your video.
Sam R: So just making sure I have heard the whole video correctly, but if I buy
this converted cylinder, I can fire any .45 ACP rounds (not revolver
rounds) out of my black powder 1858 .44 Pietta? Because I seriously don't
want to buy this and suddenly my gun blows up in my hand or something
Quinofthenorth: HEY SKEEZICK..YR REMINGTON IS A 'SINGLE ACTION' NOT A 'SINGLE SHOT'
hot2warm: all told, $281 from Taylor's & Co., Inc.
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.
pbt02270: Nice part..... Where the heck is your revolver?!
mornin151: what did it cost you?
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.
BulletShogun: so no using hornaday critical defense?
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. :)
les faust: yup its pricy,,i payed 300 bucks for almost the same stanless steal
cylinder,,,,, for almost same pietta revolver from cabella,,,,,,
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
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
BulletShogun: stumpy the cowboy. brilliant.
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!!!
michael waraksa: very edifying demo on the conversion system
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.
GRMGR1: Have you had an opportunity to test fire it yet?
hot2warm: I also added a link for the Cabelas black powder pistol holster, so you can
see how it fits in the holster.
hot2warm: I added a link to my unboxing video of my revolver. it's a real beauty too.
hot2warm: I wouldn't recommend it, unless you want to be known as Stumpy.
blastforyou: too pricey, cost more than i paid for my 58
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.
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
