Here are two of my ASM Type I Army Conversions, one a Navy Arms and the other a Traditions, both 38 Spl. shoot great with no problems. All I've done is slick up the action and refinish the grips. Still looking for a 44 Colt, Sure would like to find one to go with my other 44s.  Never seen a gun everone thinks is junk so hard to find. If anyone out there has one you would like to sell please let me know. I would also consider another 38 Spl.
Thanks again,
Reno

Here is another ASM Conversion in 44 Colt I picked up a couple days ago. I put a pair of Ivory grips I had in the grip box on it that I  had on the Kenney Howell Conversion, and they fit not perfect, but pretty close. Gun is a Cimarron which came with the orginal grips, and the box, about 99%, and functions perfect.  I have got two 38 Specials, but been looking for a 44 Colt for a long time. Sure hope I can find a mate for it.

Sure wish I could find two more ASM Type I Conversions in 44 or 38 Spl. for my grandsons. Guess I should have kept a couple when I used to sell them. Never seen a gun so hard to buy, that so many people think is not a good investment. If antone has one call me 515-981-0694. email leepr@msn.com.

Here's my Pietta, brass framed, nickel plated, aftermarket stainless fluted cylinders, .44, 1860's
In addition to pics, I hope video links are allowed.  Smiley

 The "Road Agent Spin" and "Curly Bill Spin" (same thing) has to my knowledge never been done before by anyone drawing straight from the holster like I do in this video. This is strictly for fun and demonstration purposes, I don't recommend nor encourage any attempt to replicate my technique of draw with a loaded revolver.

I'm using twin nickel plated, Pietta .44 cal, 1860's, with stainless, fluted, cylinders. The shorter barreled 1858 Rem Uberti .44, you can see (once) flipped in the air but mostly in my shoulder holster.
 
I recommend watching it in full screen. I taught my draw to the actor "Brahm" and he is going to be using it  in the pre production, upcoming spaghetti western called "Fist of Guanto".
He contacted me due to my earlier other YouTube videos of my special draw and gives me credit for the draw technique in his film.
They also have a facebook, Twitter and YouTube page for "Fist of Guanto" which I include the links of below, and are currently in editing for the preview short (to gain financial backers) the preview which is called "Shoot in any direction and you'll hit a bastard" and the planned full length film will be called "Fist of Guanto".
 
I am not a spokesperson for the proposed preview short nor feature movie and I am not IN the movie (although I'd luv that! Lol), and I do not receive any payment in any way for inventing and inspiring the butt forward drawing directly from the holster that is going to be used in the movie. I am honored someone liked it enough to want to put it into a movie and I was glad to advise and help with my draw technique.
 
First below, my latest video that I AM in and hosting.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jON9LwXTHzs

This one is a repeated segment from the above video followed by a slow motion of the same segment. Gives you a chance to study it closely.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oQWZ79w-CM

You may also like my other much earlier videos on this draw I developed, at these links...

Below, the e mail from the actor (Brahm) who will be using my draw technique in the film short and feature, as well as links to their social media sites about the upcoming spaghetti western.
"Hey Bill thanks for swapping emails with me. So once we began actually shooting the movie the decision was kind of made to take down a lot of the behind the scenes "footage" as to not discourage anyone from how the actual finished product will look (vastly superior than the test footage in theory). We are now deep in post production, been editing for what seems like months... oh wait... it has been months... and to think this is only the "short" film which is supposed to ignite a feature (aka some financing). The short is titled "Shoot In Any Dircetion And You'll Hit A Bastard" and the proposed feature is called "Fist Of Guanto". There will be a couple of good draws in the completed short, including the Archimedes Screw which I will personally confirm at any given moment was directly inspired by the Bill Akins draw as our screen test video proclaimed. Let me know if there is anything specific I can do for you along these lines my friend. In the meantime please feel free to follow our progress at the following links, in fact we would appreciate it!"

Here are a couple pictures of 5 of my ASM 1860 Army Conversion Type Is. 44 Colts and 38 Colt, and 38 Special all in excellent condition. All I have done is refinish all the grips. Still looking for one more 44 Colt so all the Grandsons and Great Grandandsons will each have one when I move on into the sunset. If anyone has one, as most consider them junk please give me a call. 515-981-0694 or 515-979-4446.
Thanks,

Reno

I know there are probably many out there, and know what most think of them, but thought someone might like to see it anyway, as I collect them and never found one like this one. This is the best in my collection. I had a 5 1/2" just like it but it sold on Gunbrokers.
