'58 Remmington, Period Conversion.

Recommended Posts

Saw a '58 Remmington today, that had been cartridge converted, back in the day. Tag says conversion was done in 1888. Price was reasonable, and condition is pretty nice. It'll make a nice shooter.

 

Converted to ".38 Centerfire."

 

I have not yet purchased the gun, but am considering it. I am just wondering what ".38 Centerfire." means. .38 Long Colt does fit in the chamber with plenty of room to spare. And so, I wonder if this cartidge would be safe to shoot in the gun, or if I'd need to go with .38 Short Colt.

 

Or something else entirely.

 

Anyone have an opinion?
