Shooting Cimarron New Model Army Conversions

<< < (2/2)

 :)  HEY RUBE !!   ;)

Always wanted to yell that.  Anyway, really nice guns.  Having a pair of the "older" guns is a huge PLUS!! to allow you to use the Cap Gun Cylinders interchangeably (wow that's a big wurd).

I have actually set up several of my Colt pattern SNUBBIES to be convertible.  Didn't use Gated conversions though.  R&D two piece "drop in" cylinders.  Really really fun.  Go to a multi day match and if the weather isn't swell for Cap Guns . . . swap for Suppository Cylinders and PRESTO!!  Real Fun!!

Yeah, that is a great idea for sure. I have been eying up some of those Colt style snubs.

I fibbed.  Sorry.  I also built myself a pair of Colt Pattern 1860 Conversions with Kirst Konverters gated conversions.  They also accept their original Cap Cylinders.  They do look a tad "odd" with the cartridge channel thru the recoil shield but they are some easy to Cap I can tell ya.

Didn't see a lot of smoke when you were shooting those Remingtons though.  Stealthy smoke??

Play Safe Out There
