A cylinder change converts cap and ball revolvers from percussion to cartridge. Now, you can switch back and forth from black powder to centerfire by changing the cylinder. The cylinder and plate fit together without screws or threads, so reloading is simple: pull the cylinder pin, drop the cylinder, and lift off the plate with your fingers. Only certified, 4150 arsenal-grade steel is used in the production of these cylinders and top-plates, to offer superior quality and strength and ensure safety and durability. Use only cowboy ammunition that does not exceed 850 FPS; never use hot or jacketed ammunition. Cowboy ammunition is produced by most manufacturers. No frame modification is needed, although minor fitting may be required due to gun manufacturer variations. Cylinders ship separate from firearms purchases.

Great add-on to any Old Army 44 Review by Suncoastdon

I am very pleased with this conversion cylinder.
Just drops in without any gunsmithing and does not rattle due to any excessive play. Works perfectly. Remember though, only cowboy loads. (Posted on 2/17/2017)
What Fun--Why did wait so long to get one Review by Billings Montana

Not only did it drop right in, it was a tight fit just like the original cylinder from Sturm Ruger. No rattle or slop. I was a little anxious at first to fire the weapon as it is an after-market conversion from the original design. I even purchased the lowest grain LC Colt ammunition available on the shelf (200 grain) thinking it was going to kick like a mule. NOT SO! It fired so smooth and easy that I certainly would run a higher grain round. Do however take note of Taylor,s warning to leave one cylinder empty for placement of the hammer when transferring the weapon for any reason or situation when loaded. Highly recommended.
