cartridge conversion cylinders
Hi guys and gals. I have been a "gun nut" for years. Recently i acquired a pietta 1851 44 cal. After which i decided i wanted a cartridge conversion, but was not too inclined to pay more for it than the cost of my pistol. I decided to make my own. I have a cnc business that i make custom parts for local(central ky) factories and have worked extensively with parts for lockheed and BAE systems and im a mechanical engineer. It now shoots 45 long colts and is a blast. I even made one for my brother. My question is if there is a market for these at app. 140$ ea. I would love to break into it. Just asking your opinions. Thanks.

Lets see a pic of it of the ones you made . Are you going to make them for the Remy too or just the Colts . Are you using 1 firing pin or 6 firing design . Are you making a whole new cylinder or redoing old ones .

Hey Shieldslx, are you still alive? We have not heard from you since last September. Do you still have an interest in making conversion cylinders?
