As much as I love the Dan Wesson revolvers, I have to admit to a secret love affair with the original Colt revolver designs. The 1851 Navy and the 1860 Army stand out as arguably the most attractive revolvers ever made. I owned a (replica) 1860 Army once, and while I enjoyed shooting it, the meticulous cleanup afterward made me enjoy it a bit less. All that black powder (corrosive) soot buildup, the percussion cap failures and the billowing clouds of stinky smoke just weren’t what I bargained for. I know some folks are really into it, and I fully understand it; just not for me on a regular basis.

Enter the cartridge conversion revolvers! Only about 7,000 of these were originally made mostly in 1871 & 1872. Original Colts used black powder cartridges of course, but today’s excellent Uberti reproductions are intended for modern smokeless powder cartridges. For me it’s the perfect compromise. I get to appreciate the open top revolver design with all its beauty, but with the convenience of a gun that operates as easily as any Colt SAA or its clones. Beautifully crafted firearms with surprisingly excellent accuracy as well. This one is chambered in .45 Colt.IMG_0651.jpgImage Enlarger

That is a nice conversion.  I just bought a Cimarron .38 Special conversion ‘Man with no name’ gun.  The craftsmanship is outstanding.  They are cool pieces.

The “Man With No Name” gun is the ultimate conversion in my opinion. Closer in appearance to an actual cap and ball revolver as it does not have the added ejector rod assembly. Please let us know how it shoots, and it would be great if you could post a photo!
