Thanks for the link , Fred!!!
You bet. Tomorrow I grind open my nipple access on a 1858 and will install some Slix shot as a part of tuning up my new 36 Navy.

OKay, I lied. I took a close look at the shrouded nips 1861 Colt and decided to buy a straight line capper instead. they just need a different treatment  with some direct filing. I don't want to do it so I will chicken out.
I figure the 62 Police coming tomorrow will need a straight line capper anyway so why mess with the gun.
I just got a Rem 58 36 Navy which is just a Rem 58 with a smaller hole in the barrel. (Heavier too) So I did the rotary Dremel thing on the Navy cylinder. Worked great. What I won't do for fun. j

Here is a pair of Richards conversions as built by ASM.  Two different importer's and subtle differences between the two revolvers.  Both chambered for the 44 Colt.

New 1860 snub. Barrel shortened to 2 7/8" Smoothed and a track of the wolf sight installed. Kirst converter added. Still need to refinish those grips in oil and maybe exchange for a shorter 1851 grip. Shoots two inches at 7 yards with cowboy 45 Brass, a 160 RNFP bullet and 3.5-4.0 grains of Red Dot. I still have to percussion cylinder.

 Grin Heres my 60 type 2 by ASM for Traditions. Never had to work on it other than polishing the internals. The Cimmaron 72 on top on the other hand after 50 rounds had to replace the firing pin with one from The Smith Shop,replace the hand that was dead soft and the bolt which broke a leg at round 50 Leather is by Don Barnett at Liberty Leather.

Here is the hideout I made from a Cimarron Richard mason 44 Colt with 2 7/8" barrel like the one carried by US Marshall Dallas Stoudenmirein in El Paso Texas, only his had no front sight.

Here is my Richards Type I Conversion in 38 Colt made by Kenny Howell years ago. It was one of his first, Ser.#006  Shoots to POA. I have 7 Conversions but this one is my favorite. I sure would like to find a ASM in 44 Colt, I have had 3 in 38 SPL. two good ones and one not so good. Iam 71 and a retired dealer and had to send many ASMs back to Cimarron and Navy Arms but would still like to have one to add to my other Conversions to pass down to the Grandsons. Sure do like those Conversions.

Here is a couple of my Conversions, one you have already seen with Ivory grips the one on the bottom, so I put the orginal walnut grips on it and thought you might like to see it. It is a Kenny Howell made  1860 Type I Conversion one his first ser. #006 in 38 Colt and the other on the top is a ASM 1860 in 38 Spl. I have 8 Conversions and you have seen them all. Sure wish I could find a ASM in 44 Colt. I know all their problems, but want one anyway. Thanks for looking.

That Howell conversion is really nice.....you nailed the finish on it...... Grin

I've owned a few of the ASM's....2 good....1 bad. The one I just posted was NIB....picked it up off Gunbroker last month......seems to be "good" after making a spacer for the arbor (to get the bbl/cyl gap up to .007"), and fitting/stoning the wedge. I made it thru about 80 rounds of BP .38 Colt before things started to get sluggish. It seems like it will run indefinitely on smokeless.

The seller had 5 or 6 NIB ASM conversions......like he bought an old inventory.....mine came in an EMF box w/paperwork. I wish I had bought the 7 1/2" 1851 in .38 as well...

None were .44 colts.......
