1851/1861 Gated Conversion Kit


SKU: N/A Categories: , Tag:


Newly Designed KIT.  No need to drill and tap the frame to adhere the ring to the frame.  Includes a Loading Port Template to help cutting the loading port easier!

The Gated Conversion kit converts your revolver to look like one of the conversion Navy revolvers made by Colt in the 1870’s, including a color case hardened ring and door. This kit combines the superior handling qualities and aesthetic lines of the classic Navy revolver with the convenience of a center fire cartridge. The light recoil makes this conversion a natural for general shooting as well as Cowboy Action Shooting.

For improved accuracy, we recommend lining your percussion barrel from a .375 bore to a .357.  Once your barrel is lined, you may use any 38-caliber lead cartridge.  If you choose not to line your barrel, we recommend using a hollow base wadcutter bullet.  This type of bullet will expand to follow the rifling in your unlined barrel.  Click HERE to order 38SPL Hollowbase wadcutter ammo.
