1851/1860 Conversion Cylinder Question

Recommended Posts

Taylor's offers conversion cylinders for their 1851 and 1860 percussion revolvers. They are five-shot. Can I assume there is a hammer landing spot between the chambers so all five can be loaded?

Actually sort of NO.  There is no hammer "landing spot."  The cylinder design has an "extra" Cylinder Locking Bolt Slot that locks the cylinder in-between chambers.  The hammer does rest on the back of the cylinder but it is the extra slot that locks the cylinder from rotation.
