1849 Wells Fargo cartridge conversion

A while back I got a Uberti 1849 Wells Fargo that I was less than thrilled with. While the outside fit and finish was nice the action and inside finishing to say the least usable. I had planed to make this a 32 SW conversion from the get go and ordered a R&D cylinder at the same time as the gun. After my dissatisfaction with the gun in the beginning I chose to let it sit awhile for a cool off period. This last weekend I got down and dirty with it and cleaned it up and smoothed the action on the inside. Well I'm happy with how it all turned out and I'm taking it to the range tomorrow with a box of Winchester lead round nose 85gr to try it out. I will give a report on it tomorrow night after I shoot it.
