Just have to brag and gloat a bit. The 8" is a standard Pietta 1860 .44 with a Walt Kirst gated "Saber River" engraved Konverter and ejector rod. The recoil shield has been milled with a channel for loading/unloading cartridges. The other is a Taylor's exclusive 3" inch barrel 1860 snub nose with a humped backstrap Thunderer style bird's head grip. It also has a Kirst gated Konverter with the recoil shield milled for ejecting. I named in my "Avenging Angel" after Tom Berenger's 3" barreled 1860 in the Movie of the same name.
Selling the second of the 1858 Remington Kirst cartridge conversions from the upcoming October Cowboy Chronicle article. Items included are: Pietta 1858 percussion (with percussion cylinder) a Kirst Gated .45 Colt/Schofield Konverter, an 1858 improved ejector rod assembly, original wood and inexpensive faux-ivory grips from "Get A Grip" and a brown OKlahome slim Jim Holster. This is a 5.5" barreled 1858. Will ship as black powder pistol, so no FFL needed, and 50 state legal. Also shipped separately will be the Kirst gated .45 Colt/Schofield Konverter, the correct ejector rod. The right side of 1858's recoil shield milled "to allow easy capping of cylinder," (and incidentally accommodates the gated converter for loading and unloading the cylinder. Works like a charm). The action is smooth and the revolver dead on at 15 yards with .45 Schofield rounds. The Konverter and ejector run $434 for the set, and the Pistol is $300, and the Slim Jim Holster is $45. You can have this for $535.00 + $18 shipping and insurance. That is a $245 savings, and the recoil shield is already milled with a loading channel if you choose to use the Konverter (which would be a.other $129 from Kirst). The $535 is less than an Uberti 1858 in .45 Colt, but you have both a percussion revolver and a ,45 Colt with no FFL needed. It will be shipped as black powder assembled, with Konverter shipped separate
