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
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
