finally got a couple pics of mine...

my custom converted 32 S&W pocket ( both of these cap & ball conversion guns have been reworked inside to out, to safely fire the cartridges they are chambered for, & these are "one off" conversions, not just a pre made drop in conversion cylinder )



my 32-20 conversion...



my single action wall rack... CAS paired guns on top... note my spur trigger collection on bottom right, & the Sharps & Hankins 32 Rimfire pepperbox in the middle... the bare holding rod saves the place for my newest custom, a Ruger single 10, converted to an 8 shot 257 "special" ( actually a wildcat version of the 257 Magnum wildcat ) that is about 3/4 complete right now

thanks... my single actions are ( IMO ) a nice mix of originals, a couple conversions, to new polished stainless Rugers... all will at least fire, ( though I've never fired the bottom break S&W or the pepper box, both "function" & I have no reason to think they wouldn't fire ) & I have ammo for all... ( the 30 rimfire has 22 caliber eggscentric rifled chamber inserts in the cylinder, so I can shoot shorts or Colibri's ( since I couldn't ever find any good 30 rimfire ammo I thought I could shoot)

Magnum Wheel man, I'm interested in doing a 32-20 conversion on a 49' to go with my 32-20 1873 Winchester, my question is about bottlenecking the chambers, could you send me a PM (private message), so we could talk? Also, ROA is Ruger Old Army.

Way out of my baliwyck, but ROA is Ruger Old Army, the blackpowder "Ruger Blackhawk."

I have absolutely, positively no use for these guns, but they sure are pretty!
