I don't really see a problem. You could shorten the hand and have it drop closer to the notch but Remingtons don't have a lead in, Make it too short and you run the risk of over running the notch, specially if you cock it too fast

Well, if you shorten the hand it will make your percussion cylinder late. Either live with it or shorten the hand and only use it for cartridges. It's not going to hurt anything being timed a tad early except a slight drag mark between where it contacts the cylinder and the notch.

I love the way you solved that problem, when you get your next one try the conversion in it and see if it does the same thing. By comparing the two you should see any differences.

Not to hijack your thread but when I got my 5.5" barreled Pietta 1858 New Army a few months back I bought 2 spare Percussion cylinders to go along with it, they all work flawlessly on it with no timing issues nor accuracy differences "that would really matter" averaging 2.5" to 3" groups at 25 yards, but when I tried any of my cylinders in my 22 year old 8" barreled Pietta 1858 New Army I found that the Bolt cuts are larger on the new cylinders than on the older gun & that when at ready fire position the new cylinders can rock back & forwards just a touch which could cause accuracy issues.

Don't get me wrong, I love both my Piettas but the older gun will have to just shoot it's orriginal cylinder unless I buy a bolt & smith it in & buy a new cylinder for it too.
