Conversion Cylinder Slick Up?


Shameless Womanizer 57929

Recommended Posts

My Remington1858 Pietta Howell Conversion Cylinder seems a few thousandths long?

 

i can make the cylinder cycle, but with too much effort.

 

Seems like I could Arkansas Stone the face that faces the barrel and this problem would be solved.

 

Has anyone else owned what I describe and dealt with this situation thusly?  (Note this winnows out the folks what would just guess to pass the time and eat lumpy grits.)

Take it off the rear of the cap. All of the cylinders are the same length, the cap is where the difference is made up on the Howell's/Taylor's. That way you can use the same cylinder in pietta and Uberti, all you have to do is have a cap for each brand.

 

Remember a little goes a long way...

Agreed, a little goes a long way.

 

So your talking about the hand actuated side of the cap, just to be clear.

 

Thanks,

yes, where the ratchet and hand are... the caps for pietta are thicker then the caps for uberti so you could buy one cylinder and two caps to work two different brand guns...
