This 1851 Colt conversion has a loading port cut in the frame and converts this '51 Colt (Pietta) for the R&D cartridge conversion with loading gate. The .36 caliber percussion revolver barrel has a bore diameter of .375 inches. Today_s .38 caliber bullets are .357-inch diameter bullets. To attain best accuracy with a .38 caliber cartridge, you must shoot a soft lead hollow base bullet. You may choose to shoot a .38 special full wadcutter which is a hollow base. This ammo is available at most good gun shops. The soft lead hollow base bullet will _bump up” to the .375-inch bore diameter and shoot very accurately. The grips are old ivory polymer. This conversion was hand tuned by Kenny Howell. When ship assembled as you see it here this gun will have to go to a FFL Dealer.
