Pocket Revolver, rimfire to centerfire

(1/2) > >>

Story:
I know it should be fairly straightforward (redo firing pin on hammer, redrill firing pin hole in frame) but has anyone specifically done a revolver and can share insights?
@NDNCF did a rolling block ages ago. https://www.cascity.com/forumhall/index.php?topic=25461.msg333665#msg333665

Reason I ask is this Rupertus has a floppy/dead hand and would be a good candidate for this experiment.

St. George:
Far easier to replace the spring and keep the originality, than to chance a wrought iron frame.

Scouts Out!

Reverend P. Babcock Chase:
Howdy St.,

If your revolver is a rimfire for which ammo is no longer available and has no real collector value, I'd consider the conversion. That said, I would recommend BP only loads. Maybe have a gunsmith check the frame for cracks or weaknesses.

Good luck and shoot it with your off hand.

You're responding to St George, who responded to me, who originally posed the question.  ;D

Yup, even easier is doing absolutely nothing at all.

Meanwhile, precedence exists https://lsstuff.com/howdah/ha32.html
