Personally, I think it would be an interesting pistol and a good shooter. I have a 1910 DOB Army Special in 38 spl. - 6 inch barrel. I love the "vintage" revolvers. While the conversion would obviously affect the value, it would be nice to have one to shoot with the cheaper 22 ammo. I hope the OP will post some photos of it - would be interesting to see what they did to it.
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63
