Just received and email from the Marshal about this forum the other day. Good to see so many others shouting the Open Tops and Conversions. I have not seen any others in my area shooting them. I shoot an Open top and a RM 1860 Army in 44Colt with my 66 Yellowboy in 44-40. I not in the sport for the speed, I am in for the fun of shooting and trying to be period correct. I just purchased the RM Army from Marshal a couple of weeks ago and shot it for the first time this past Sunday in a monthly shoot. I shoots real sweet. Shot my 66 for the first time also. Not sure if it was the new guns, but I shot with a lot less misses then previous shoots. I was borrowing a rifle and my second gun was an Uberti Cattleman in 45 with 51/2 barrel. I was missing more with the 45 then my Open top so I would say this was some of the difference. I was hoping that R&D would have come out with the conversion kit to make a Richards 1860 Army conversion, but it was going to take longer than expected so I went with the RM 60 Army. Someday, hopefully maybe Uberti/Beretta will come out with a good quality Richards. Looking forward in being able to come to this forum to read interesting things about these type of gun. Thanks to those you put this together.

Forgot to mention, I have a magazine with an article about Gren's conversions. Probably what got me interested in these type of guns.

Well, I'm not usually a joiner, but this seems like company I'd like to keep. I shoot a brace of Open Tops and have a passion for conversions. I'd eventually like to add conversions of 1861 Navies, an 1862 Police or two and a '49 conversion as a pocket piece. There's something about conversions -- and I know the Open Top isn't really a conversion, but it looks like one -- that really turns me on. I have vague plans to convert some odd-ball guns, as well. How about a conversion on a Starr single action? Or a Rogers-Spencer? Gunsmiths back then probably converted just about anything to fire cartridges, so why not add some of the less common ones? All it will take is time and money and access to a decent machine shop.

Just bought my first open top a month ago. It's the 1872 open top in 45 schofield. Dang is that thing accurate. I've owned open top cap and balls before. 1860 colt, 1847 walker and a small sherrif's model. Sold those off and wish I hadn't now. Sign me up.

Howdy,

I'm in Spencer Shooting Society, I guess I need to join STORM since I shoot a pair of Charcoal Blue Cimarron 1860 Richards-Masons in .44 Colt. One is 8" and one is 5 1/2", both with Army grips.  They go well with my Henry and Spencer.

I'll be glad to get you on the list.. just want to make sure I get the right name.
You are saying Howdy to Nine Toe Jim, right?
Sir Charles deMoutonBlack is the name you want on the roster?

I havn't found out the difference, if any, between a member of STORM and a RIDER of the STORM.  I have Cap & Ball Colt 1851, 1860 & 1862 Police  reproductions, as well as a pair of 1851 R-Ms.  I don't own or ride a horse anymore.
