So in addition to everything else these will NOT "make it safe to shoot modern smokeless cartridges."

The purpose of these is for partly historical accuracy for those interested in a particular time frame when these were in use, & partly for faster BP reloads for BP competition such as SASS where more than 6 shots are needed.

I'm sure a "creative individual" could do the raft of things needed to do to re-engineer a BP revolver into a modern cartridge pistol, but it would be massively time intensive & almost certainly illegal.
