C. Mason Revolver – 1860 Army

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 favorite reproductions. The Army version of the C. Mason revolvers features a steel backstrap and triggerguard, round barrel with front blade sight, and a larger-size Army grip. All C. Mason models feature a case-hardened forged steel frame, blued finish parts, modern ejector rod, and hammer with notched rear sight. Requires an FFL dealer to ship.

Zero Disappointment Review by SjStewart

This Uberti reproduction of the "Richards-Mason" Conversion is a piece of fine art you hold in your hand. The fit and finish is perfection. Craftsmanship at its best. An absolutely beautiful piece worth every penny, that you will find yourself having a hard time putting away, and an uncanny need to keep taking it out of the box. I loaded black powder cartridge (Starline Brass) for it with a 250 grain Oregon Trail RNFP on top of 30 grains of FFFg GOEX and it was an absolute joy to shoot. You will not be sorry with this one.
