Cartridge Conversions Of Colt Revolvers




What do you think about this video?

ksharpe10: One thing that is never mentioned is the FACT that the early Cartridges were loaded with black powder, Smokeless came much later, 1st one was in 1886. The MODERN replica conversions are made of much stouter metal and will shoot Smokeless. But not necessarily The newer Replica percussion guns, if you use one of the handy conversions for those guns, you should only load Black Powder filled Cartridges. Always read directions thoroughly on any kind of Historical Repo. And it helps to really study it all before you jump in thinking you can shoot any old thing.

hf140952: Very interesting but what a pity for the quality of the picture .

Franz Roth: Colt Cartridge Conversions

Aus den B-Movie-Western kennt man als Waffe des Wild West ja eigentlich nur den "Peacemaker", den Colt 1873 Army, als Revolver.

In Wirklichkeit aber wurden bis weit in die 1880-er Jahre anstatt dieses primär für die Army entwickelte Modell (war für Zivilisten viel zu teuer und wurde erst Ende der 1870-er auch zivil verkauft) umgebaute Vorderlader, die sogenannten Conversions verwendet.

Es gab sie im Besonderen von den beiden Herstellern #Colt  und #Remington  .

Der 1860 Army Richards Mason Conversion war besonders beliebt:

Aber auch der umgebaute Remington 1858 Army fand sich in vielen Holstern von Cowboys und Revolvermännern:

Lars Jönlid: I´am in awe... what a collection !!!

ImWatchinTheTube: @stevevandien I would imagine they worked the same as the Colt SAA, with a bit weaker frame due to the open top and the handling/disassembly of their black powder predecessors (that they used to be).

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
