The cylinder of this TX Paterson is 5-shot, RM-type ejector housing like the original.
Nedbal altered the bore to .41 cal. like the original, replicated also the 11 rifling grooves of the original ... which was quite an effort.
This conversion has been proof tested at the Vienna Proof house.
Shooting?
He produced a few round of .41 CF loaded with the holy black, function tested her and fired a few rounds at a paper target at 25 meters.
Don't know the results of the accuracy test at this time but will ask him when we phone again.

According to Dennis Adler  - collector & photographer - the original is on display in the Woolaroc Museum in Bartlesville, OK, USA. For reasons unknown, this Texas Paterson was converted sometime during the 1870s by a gunsmith to fire metallic cartridges.
This singular example is pictured in Philip R. Phillipps and R.L. Wilson's book PATERSON COLT PISTOL VARIATIONS.
An exact copy was made for Dennis Adler by R.L. Millington in Eastlake, CO, USA. A second copy was made for noted Paterson collector Dennis LeVett.

Thanks, Pards.
Incidentally, Karl made the conversion barrel of this Paterson from scratch.
