CAS City Classifieds / Lemat conversion parts for sale or trade.

Yes, you read it right.

I acquired a Pietta/Dixie gun works Navy model Lemat a while ago, converted to .32ACP cartridges.
Its been stripped, in the white, and the barrel defarbed as well.
The grapeshot barrel is still percussion.

Its nicely done, gated and in new condition.

However, I do not want a 32 caliber lemat..
I can't use it for any kind of re-enactment event, and I consider the caliber choice a bit too weird for me.
Yes, I know its what was used in the Westworld movie, and plenty of folks have been looking for one for several years.

Since the frame has been cut for cartridge feed, it would have to go through a FFL dealer to sell or trade the gun.

Since thats a hassle, and I actually would prefer to keep the gun by converting it back to percussion, I am looking to sell or trade just the barrel and cylinder.

Since no frame would be included, its just gun parts, and legal without issues.

I know that Frank Bird does these conversions, and charges around $2000 for just the conversion work.

A new barrel is $250.
A new cylinder is $175.

So a basic value would be around $2425.

I am willing to trade the barrel and cylinder for the barrel and cylinder off of someone else's gun plus $2000 in cash or trade, or best offer.
This would give me what I want to restore the gun to its original configuration.

I'm willing to bargain, and theres a few things I am looking for.

I'm willing to talk trade and cash for:

1858 Remington in 44.  One, or a pair. in percussion, so its still cap and ball and legal to mail.

1851 Colt navy in .36 percussion. Single or pair.

Pietta or Uberti- please no ASM, palmetto armory or others.  Too hard to get parts for anything but Pietta or Uberti these days.
Steel frames only, please.

Howell drop in or conversion cylinders for the above, made for the same makers.

Rogers and Spencer .44 would be considered, pair or single.  Conversion or drop in cylinders as well.

We can work out values for a trade.
I would be willing to dicker for what I want.

I would potentially consider other trades for percussion revolvers or non gun items.
Has to be stuff legal to ship through the mail.

Pics will be posted if theres any serious interest.
My digital camera and laptop with the right software for it date to the early 2000s, and its a royal pain to dig it all out for pics.

So I'll be lazy at the moment, and post pics if needed.

I realize I haven't been around here for a long time, but my life took some different paths for a few years, and I drifted away from shooting after the last gun shops close to my house closed.  I am active on several other historical interest sites, and I do a fair amount of buying and selling off of facebook and the like.
So I do have an online presence elsewhere.

Very sorry.  Already sold.
I wish I did, I'd get rid of it to you. :D
does that mean you have one you want to get rid of?
You're in luck, as it seems everybody eventually wants to get rid of their LeMat. :D ;)
PM me if you have something you would like to get rid of.
