Ruger Old Army Stainless Steel Conversion Cylinder

This stainless steel conversion cylinder converts Ruger Old Army revolvers from .44 black powder to .45LC/.45Schofield smokeless ammunition. Taylor's does not recommend shooting ammunition rated above 850 fps in this conversion cylinder. Reloading/loading is done by removing the cylinder and then removing the cylinder cap from the cylinder. The cylinder contains 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. If shooting black powder ammunition the firings pins must be removed and cleaned to avoid corrosion. The finish option of fluting is available to have flutes cut into the body of the conversion cylinder or to have a smooth cylinder with no fluting. No frame modification is needed, although minor fitting may be required due to gun manufacturer variations. Cylinders ship separate from firearms purchases.

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)

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.
