58 Remington cylinder mods

Recommended Posts

I seem to remember seeing an approved cylinder modification for the 58 Remington, of opening the area around the nipple.  I've tried looking on here again as well as the handbook, but cannot find it.  So, was I just dreaming, or does it exist?

- Modifying the cylinders of percussion revolvers by opening up the cap/nipple recess area to accommodate the use of all types of cappers is allowed.

SHB p.37


(I've made a note to move that to the "Revolver Cylinders" section)

My 3d printed Polish Capper works on both sides of my ASM Remmy with no modifications to the cylinder or the Pietta Cylinder that also fits in it.

A polish capper or Ted Nash straight line will work without modifying.  If you want to use a snail capper look at the picture that Mr. Pettifogger posted.
