That was a figure I tripped across some years ago (when I was writing an article) that someone estimated.  It included Colt Remington factory conversions of all calibers, etc. (large and small caliber conversions), as well as private conversions of everything including Walkers, Dragoons, long cylinder 1860s and 1851/61, and even more obscure weapons.  He likened the numbers to S&W top breaks, IIRC.

I have no facts to base it on, just that random printed article I had tripped across.  I would not think, though, that 100,000 would be out of the ball park when you consider all of the above.  Remington conversions in all sizes were VERY common.
