These Gated Conversion Cylinders create the look of blackpowder revolver cartridge conversions popular in the late 19th century. Each cylinder includes a conversion ring with an integral loading gate that allows you to load and unload the cylinder without removing it from the frame. For use in the unlined percussion barrel, it's recommended you use a hollow base bullet or factory loaded .38 SPL 148gr HBWC target ammunition. Drilling and tapping of the frame is required, as well as removing material from the frame for cartridge clearance. Purchase of the proper Installation Fixture and Drill and Tap Kit is strongly recommended. No FFL required to purchase. For steel frame revolvers only. Installation of this product requires gunsmithing. This is not a drop-in cylinder.
- Due to manufacturing variations in revolvers, some minor fitting will be required.
Note:This conversion cylinder is for BLACK POWDER cartridges or black powder equivalent cartridges (also called Cowboy Ammunition) ONLY. Attempting to use modern ammunition will create a dangerous condition that can result in injury or death.
