The service at Taylors is top of the line,fantastic. Had mine fitted when I sent revolver in and it works like a charm. I used cowboy action .45 colt lN and it worked great. Taylors personnel are really great and answered all my questions. The gunsmith was very helpful and returned my revolver really quick. Thank you Taylors and Co. (Posted on 9/30/2017)

Fit right into my late model pietta 1860 revolver . No mods. After 30 rounds the cylinder turned even smoother. Just got to watch the overall length of your ammo for clearance.

Works fine in my 1860 Army, except that I load my own 45LC ( and they are to spec - 1.60" long), and this cylinder is just a hair short. I exepct I will need to use 45 Schofield in this cylinder (Posted on 5/17/2017)

Very well built. Did not fit my Pietta 1860 army, but did fit my Pietta Navy in .44 caliber. I assume do to manufacturers inconsistencies in the pistols. (Posted on 5/12/2017)
Excellent! Review by Capt Chance

Dropped right in, I had already polished and smoothed the bolt on my Pietta so no worries about drag marks on the cylinders. The conversion cylinder dropped in, timed, locked up, and rotated into battery perfectly. My only criticism is that the edges of chambers were very sharp. A few minutes with an ultra fine polishing sponge resolved the issue and in all honesty it truly goes to show the accuracy that these cylinders are made with. A sharp edge like that only forms from precise milling. (Posted on 5/12/2017)
Very nice product.It works extremely well after free fitting. Review by WildBill

I like this product a lot. It makes it much easier and simpler to shoot your black powder revolver, yet it gives you the option to go back and shoot it with the original percussion cylinder. Mine had to be fitted, and was done free of charge. This was completed very quickly and professionally by the gunsmith at Taylor's and Company. My only issue is that it had to be fitted at all, but that is because Pietta has traditionally not made their firearms uniformly, and their parts usually have to be fitted. Also, the cylinder cost almost as much as the gun. I think the price is too high, but to me it was still worth the investment. I think it is an excellent product. (Posted on 4/6/2017)

Dropped right into my Pietta and worked flawlessly. Perfect timing. Great quality. Haven't fired it yet as the snow is up to my ass here, but will work up some .45 colt loads and pop it off in the spring. (Posted on 1/11/2017)
Conversion cylinder for Pietta 1860 army 44 cal. Review by Frederick

The cylinder was delivered promptly and was as stated, well finished and of high quality. I did have to send it along with my revolver as some minor fitting and adjustments were needed, this was done promptly and my revolver was returned to me in perfect condition ready to use in just a few days. I also have conversion cylinders for all my other revolvers and they are of the same high quality. The need for minor fitting on some revolvers is not due to a defect in the cylinder but due to minor variations in manufacturing, most of my cylinders just dropped in right out of the box with no fitting needed. If you want a quality product and great customer service Taylor's is the place to go. (Posted on 10/25/2016)

i called in my order to Taylors for a conversion finally. they looked so fun i could not resist! i was told on the phone depending on my year of pietta the cylinder could not time up when i drop it in. of course as my luck would have it the cylinder did not time up well so i called back. Taylors told me to send my gun in and they would fit it for free.

so i sent it in and when i got it back it worked like a charm and the gunsmith was super fast on the job. great service! (Posted on 8/3/2015)
