You might contact Euroarms of America and ask for a list of their retail customers, or perhaps they'll sell you one.
Euroarms of America Rogers & Spencer (http://www.euroarms.net/euroarms_netRoger_file/euroarms_netRoger.htm)
My personal favorite, however, would be S&S Firearms, page 63 of their 2009 catalog:

I just bought one off GunBroker for $170. It's used; but the pics looked good. Should be here tomorow - then it's to the range to thrash it out.

Good luck in your hunt.

I certainly wouldn't mind finding a second one.

I forget what I first one cost last year...but I think it was $125 or so...

I'm too lazy to look back through my posts and book to find out right now. :p

Pictures!!!
We need pictures of your new piece!!!

By the looks of that R&S someone is going to be a very happy camper! :)

A R&S for $125 is a steal. I would not sell mine for less than twice that.

I've seen the cartridge conversion cylinders for these things out there...

Does anyone have one that they've tried? Is it soft metal or hard (firing pins)?

Yup I got an R&D .45Colt Drop in 6 shot. for my R&S works great, carts are dead accurate in it.

Smokin Gun:
If I may ask where did you get your cylinder?? I only ask as it appears that no one has any in stock!! I checked with Midway & Buffalo Arms, both places indicated that it will be at least 5 to 6 weeks before they expect to receive any R&S Cylinders, so I'm guessing only a few at a time (for the R&S) are made & shipped.

Thanks for the advice, I got lucky as on a hunch, I called Taylors & Co yesterday, and they had one left in stock (actually what she said was they had one in the back) Hope it wasen't a return!!
Both Midway & Buffalo arms was out of stock on the R&S conversion cylinders!!

Well I just received the Revolver from muler44, I'm very pleased with it, the R&S is as pictured in the above thread.
It took me awhile to figure out that I don't have to unscrew the double screws and remove the screw itself to "pull" the cylinder.

I will eventually post some pictures after I make a "cowboy" holster for it.

Congrads Dakotaern on scorin' that new R&D Cylinder for your R&S. You'll enjoy it and it will fit and work jus' fine. With these sometimes there is very minor fitting polishing. But mine went right in and spun free... :cool:

Thanks for the thaughts on the loading lever lock-up. Now as far as my R&D "dropping in" ...Yep it dropped right in, after about 4 hours of polishing with a stone, the frame (under the cyl in front) the most time consuming polishing was the breech end of the barrel, I had to remove nearly 2 thousands to get the cylinder to rotate without binding. Once that was done I tried cocking it slowly and while the hand rotated the cylinder it didn't fully engage into the bolt. I then tried to cock it fast and it locked up as it should.
I called a gunsmith friend, and he advised me that the hand is just a bit short for that cylinder (the black powder cylinder locks up fine with slow cocking) Now the fix, he said I could take the gun apart, put the hand on a flat steel surface and gently tap on it, and that would stretch the hand enough to work properly. At this time I'm not going to try this!! As long as I remember to cock the revolver forcefully (or fast) it will lock up fine.
