I have heard of some who have used a small, tapered punch (like maybe a nail set) to gently swell the neck of the nipple.
I never thought of this. Great tip Mazo!  L@.

Hi Hewy, I posted this photo of 1851s with conversion cylinder before:



The revolvers with five bullets are Pietta .44 1851 revolvers with Taylor (Howell) .45 Colt 5-shot conversion cylinder. I have a few different length Pietta .44 eBay barrels that can be mixed and matched to any .44 1851 or 1860 frame to create any fantasy gun I choose. The cylinder from Taylor is $200.

Because your revolver is a 6-shot conversion to 5-shot you may need to shorten the hand a little to have the revolver cycle properly. If you buy your conversion cylinder from Taylor, they will fit the cylinder to your revolver for free.

Regards,
Richard

I educated the gals behind the counter on the Italian date code system, but they required me to surrender my driver's license before fondling the weapon in question. As one had to attend to other matters she said told the other gal "you have to tackle him if he runs for the door".  I'm 6'0' and 300 lbs. Laughter ensues as neither are over 100 lbs soaking wet.
