I have a pair of Pietta 1858 Navies .36 cal I ordered two spare cylinders from Cabela's, they came in last night & I did a test fit this morning, the interchange is perfect I can't tell the old from the new spares. Used a borelight to check for alignment looks perfect.
Can't wait to shoot them next week.
Thinking maybe a new holster set like the Preacher from Pale Rider might be in order.:D

I picked up 2 spare cylinders for my ROA shortly after getting the gun and realizing the delay between sets. The Ballistix cylinders are drilled deeper so hold an extra 5to7gr of powder. They are a true fit and tight, with excellent performance, now I get 18 shot rounds and if I bring my conversion cyl, I get 24 between reloads.
