[QUOTE][They tried to sell me the conversion revolver (45 long colt I think) but I didn't want it, because I wanted a Colt 1851 Navy. I like the looks of it, and it has historical, sentimental value to me because I'm a Missourian and they were popular with the Guerrillas. Josey Wales, man! /QUOTE]

I understand your affinity for the 1851, I really like it and think it points excellently. Uberti does make a cartridge conversion of the 1851, check here:http://www.uberti.com/firearms/armyConversion.tpl

I bought the 1851 navy conversion instead of doing the cylinder conversion mostly because the Uberti comes with a loading gate. I always thought it would be a pain in the butt to pull the wedge take off the barrel and cylinder and reload the cylinder again. But of course you can get conversion cylinders for your 1851 with a loading gate too, but you have to do some work to get it installed.

BTW, The Outlaw Josey Wales is one of my favorite westerns, just a kick butt movie.
