1871 C. Mason Revolvers
With patents for the conversion of percussion revolvers, Colt® employees Charles Richards and William Mason cut off the cap-and-ball cylinders at the back and installed a conversion ring to accept cartridges. These conversion revolvers were favorites then and are enjoying popularity again as part of the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting. All come standard with case-hardened frame and blue barrel finish. Nickel finish frame and barrel are available; add N00 to model number.
