Conversion Cylinders

Conversion Cylinders

Taylor's conversion cylinder line offers an easy conversion option from black powder to smokeless ammunition. These 4150 arsenal grade steel conversions are drop-in style that allow the shooter to still shoot with their original black powder cylinder. Reloading/loading is done by removing the cylinder from the firearm and then removing the cylinder cap from the cylinder. The cylinder contains 5-6 firing pins retained by threaded doughnuts. The cap is reinstalled by lining up the hole in the cap with the silver guide pin on top of the cylinder, and then installing the cylinder in the firearm. If shooting black powder ammunition the firings pins must be removed and cleaned to avoid corrosion. No frame modification is needed, although minor fitting may be required due to gun manufacturer variations. Cylinders ship separate from firearms purchases.

Replacement Firing Pin

These are hardened replacement firing pins for the conversion cylinder caps. Different conversions do take different sized firing pins. To install a new firing pin in your cap you need to remove the ferrule around it with an appropriate tool and afterwards tighten the ferrule back on it again so that it is "hand tight".

Replacement Ferrule

These are replacement ferrules for the conversion cylinder caps. To install a new ferrule you need to remove the old ferrule from the cap with an appropriate tool and afterwards tighten the new ferrule back on the cap again so that it is "hand tight".

Conversion Cylinder Ferrule Removal Tool

This tool is used to remove the ferrules from your conversion cylinder cap. The ferrule is a small ring that screws down over the firing pin to hold it in the cap. The ferrules in Taylor's conversion should always be hand-tight and not over tightened as this could result in difficult to remove ferrules. This tool is made in the USA out of heat treated steel with a textured grip. Overall length is about 1.5" making it a perfectly compact tool for any range bag!
