Ryan Bunte: I'm in heaven...

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: http://www.waffensammler-kuratorium.de/colt1860/colt1860ti.html Aber auch der umgebaute Remington 1858 Army fand sich in vielen Holstern von Cowboys und Revolvermännern: Remington Cartridge Conversion Systems.mov

Steve Van Dien: Good stuff, but it would have been nice to see these conversions in action:). I make that assertion, quite simply, because I've always wondered how cap-and-ball revolvers that were converted to take metallic cartridges performed in the field, particularly under combat conditions. Does anyone know?

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).

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

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