Did this video help you?

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.

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 stupid.

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 Shooting 2"

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
