    Mine is a new Pietta .44 There have been some folks that have converted them to a.45 colt. It's kind of a hand canon already.

    I owned a Dixie Shooters model in 45 cal. years ago. Dixie sells the conversion cylinders but for the price I would just buy a Blackhawk in the caliber I want. I've owned many bp revolvers and pistols and they are alot of fun to shoot. Loaded correctly you can get the ballistics of a modern 38, unless you have the Walker Colt, then it's just a plain cannon.

    My favorite was a 44 steel Army that was found in an old barn. The guy soaked it in kerosene for a week and then cleaned it up. Best shooting pistol I've ever owned.

    Owned a variety of traditional long guns, 5 of which have been GPRs. Got rid of all the bp except for the 54 GPR, I'll never get rid of that.

    Some one had a "new in box, .50 cal BP gun kit" listed in the paper yesterday for $50 bucks.....called on it and left a message??? No call back.
    First time I have seen one of these listed for sale in a long time.

    This used to be my favorite way to score anything BP.

    I manage to build about one each winter and they are not "kits". All are built from scratch. I have 11 I have built from scratch ranging from .32-.69 caliber in both rifle and smoothbore trim. There are two more half finished on the workbench and will be in shooting condition by spring. Building has kept body and mind together through many stressful times.

    I also own factory BP guns.

    2 TC Hawkins .45/.50
    1 Traditions .32
    1 CVA scope mounted in-line (I am not a trad-gun snob either)

    Also have uncounted BP revolvers and single shots scattered about and I am not sure I counted everything in every corner as I walked through the house just now.
