    Out of rifles, .32-20 is a fairly quiet round.  

    Out of pistols, it is the most efficient round for converting gunpowder to noise.   Curiously, my 7.5" Colt is somehow louder than either my 5.5 of 4-3/4" barreled ones.   I don't get it, but that's the way it is.  :)


    For various reason, the 32/20 and 30 carbine all seem louder than needed when fired out of a handgun.

    To go to the point that other Pards have posted, Magnum Arms makes a 45-70 Single Action Revolver that one could order and have in a few days.  They've made said guns for years.  If the ammunition is loaded to SASS specs as written in the rulebook what prohibits it?





    Have it in a few days seems to me as  "commonly available".  Thinking maybe, we have a winner. 

    Really think we should use the standard,  "if John Wayne would use it, then it's OK" ;)

  3. I have used a 1/2 wad cutter and beer cans to make a gas check for my 45/70.   Guessing it would also work with the 44.

    The little bit of the rolled edge slips right into the case.

    how is that cartridge’s pressure?  might it be  possible to convert a .22 like a Ruger single six?  


    isn’t this like what uberti did to make their “stallion” model p into .38?

     Ruger did exactly that also.

    The Buckeye Sports .32 Blackhawk convertibles are more common than the Vaquero convertibles, and turn up several times a year on Gunbroker. There's a .32 Vaquero convertible listed right now, currently at $901 + $30 S&H and four days to go.


    that is a great price compared to a few years back.

    I’ve got an ‘87 and tried using my brass 12 ga in it and it was iffy at best.  The leading edge of the brass shell is sharp and tends to hang up, now if you could roll that edge over just a little then I don’t think you’d have a problem.  I’m still not giving up on the brass shells in the ‘87, I’ve got a few more things to try first. 

    I use a slight roll on the brass shells.  Not a full roll , just enough to where it can start to be noticed.  With BP loads it has stayed in place.

    Dutch, the Pemi Peacemakers had a couple stages with lighweight curtains and or wash hanging on a line type props.  Several of us got in "trouble" for ummm, taking a step back and letting what might happen, happen.


    Memory not what it use to be, but think it was at the laundry.  Stage called for shooting through the laundry  (shed) to targets beyond.  A bunch of straw was stored  inside and set to one side.  Not the most pleasant smell.

  8. A rolled crimp on the drill press will give almost if not the same profile.  Will also take the cheap plastic shells and melt them into nice looking crimp.  Same with the AA with the folds no longer holding.  Melt them back and good for one more go.

    The taper is very visible even to the naked eye.
