The ammunition is loaded via the front of the cylinder and was not practical at all. The pocket is the rarest of all conversions and only a handful are known.
Matching numbers, including the wedge.
The 5 inch barrel has a sharp address and shiny inside.
This is a 6 shot, cylinder has 100% scene,
the conversion ring still 85% orig. blue and perfect patents.
Barrel 35% blue.
Functions perfectly. orig. handles are undamaged, 95% varnish.
Almost impossible to find another, these revolvers almost never come for sale,
