Thanks for the video Richard.

I still want to convert one of my 51's to .38 caliber. I will use the gated conversion with an ejector. I will also use heel base bullets and .38 Short Colt brass, just to have a fun historical load.

It's on my list of things I want to do.

Mike always has good videos, good humor in them also.
I too am working on a 36 caliber conversion, all I will say it's a Rebel Version.
Will post if & when I ever get it finished.

Dave, doesn't this sound like something we discussed a ways back?

Indeed it does. I have the gun to build it with too. Just need to put the extra cash together to buy the conversion parts.
