Howdy folks,

I notice that Bottom Dealing Mike has got a pic posted on SCORRS........

http://www.alliancelink.com/users/frontier/srrs/00image/gallery/07.jpg

...... the  "R&D Gunshop's prototype Rollin White conversion for Taylor & Co."  Looks really nice, very much like the originals with the nice sleek ejector rod assembly, thin recoil plate, and the firing pin that looks to be fashioned from the cap & ball hammer. With all that work in gunsmithing I imagine these won't be cheap. But they sure look nice!

Does anyone have any idea when these might be available, and a rough guesstimate on the  price?

Thanks!  Wink

Man o Man.  Want a piece of work! Wink

Far as cost go, I'd kin only guess.  Somebody correct me, but, I figure ya'll spend about $500.00 ta $600.00 on a gun like that with all the customizing and all. Huh

I have no idea what the cost will be, but it looks like R&D has another winner there. I may need one of those. Just when I thought I had enough Remmies.

Well, the question I have is this.  When will R&D have a drop in cylinder for the steel framed .31 Remington pocket pistol?

I talked to the lady who answered the phone at R&D yesterday. She said that the gated conversions for the NMA's will be another 60-90 days before getting started in production. No pricing information. The Rollin White was a complete gun prototype, not a gated drop-in conversion prototype. The gated conversion will be similar to the 1860 conversions, at least with the same options available.  I'll have to wait to get one unless I get a Kirst, which I haven't entirely ruled out. The trouble is, I know the quality of R&D and Kirst is an unknown for me. Walt has said he will be making a 6-shot version in .38 which is what I shoot. Darn, such decisions that have to be made.

Marshal Will Wingam, what was the lady at R&D talking about? I was told by R&D they were coming out with a conversion kit for the 1860 back in July then it was going to be considerably longer so I went with a RM 60 Army Conversion. I have not seen anything about a gated drop-in and there is nothing showing on their web site that they have one. If they do, I sure would like to purchase one. I would really like one for my 58 Remmy first though. So I will be watching for this like others on the wire.

I haven't seen anything on it either but got wind of it a few months ago and called to ask. I was told it would be another 3 months before they can get to making them as the 1860's need to be built first. I'm going to get a gated conversion for one of my Remmies. Kirst is re-introducing the 6-shot version of his gated conversion but I want to see what the R&D one is like before I decide. Evidently R&D is tooling up for the 1860 conversion at this time. If I get tired of waiting, it may simply be the first one that hits the market. Grin
