I Bought An 1851 Richards/Mason Conversion Login/Join

I already have an Armi San Marco C. Richards reproduction, but I wanted the improved Colt conversion also. My new pistol is an Uberti and I have to say the quality is outstanding. It was an expensive gun, but the quality and refinement reflects it.

I love to shoot, these are an 11 on the fun scale without having to get to black powder or obsolete exotic cartridges.

I've always been interested in the conversion pistols and everyone's attempts to get around the Rollin/White patent. Thanks for sharing this.

I looked hard at the conversions when I was in the market. I ended up with a Cimarron(Uberti) 1871 Colt Open Top replica in 44cal. I was most impressed with the fit and finish, but these are not cheap to buy.

I have run a fair amount of ammo through mine, and am 100% happy with my purchase. These old handguns have always fascinated me, but I don't do black powder any more.....kept the guns incase I change my mind.

No they are not cheap, but you can't put a price on the fun these give.

They are hand fitted pistols and that cost in labor.
