Gated Konverter & Speed Ejector Set

Upgrade your revolver for faster loading and unloading; just like the deluxe conversions that Remington did back in the Old West era. Start by cutting a *loading port into the frame to utilize the loading gate version of the Kirst Konverter™ and then add the new “Speed Ejector” assembly to complete the deluxe conversion. The loading gate/ejector version can also be switched back to Cap & Ball in a few moments.

Pale Rider Konverter

Pale Rider Konverter®

By simply installing the 1858 Remington Pale Rider Konverter® you can fire cartridges from your Cap & Ball revolver. In seconds you can replace the original cylinder to switch back to a Cap & Ball revolver. No modification of your revolver frame is required with this standard '58 Remington converter.


.22 Caliber Conversion Kit

This .22 Kit can be used in either BRASS or STEEL frame 1858 Remington New Model Army revolvers.

  • Instantly converts your .44 caliber Cap & Ball to .22 Rimfire
  • Convert from Cap & Ball by just slipping in the .22 Kit
  • 2-3/8" barrel adapter is accurate at 50 foot target range
  • Switch back to Cap & Ball by reinstalling the original cylinder

Instructions:

  1. Place the hammer to the half-cocked position and remove the percussion cylinder.
  2. Insert the .22 Rimfire Barrel Adapter into the breach of the revolver barrel.
  3. Load the cylinder with 5 cartridges, then place the Konverter™ Ring on top of the cylinder and carefully install the Kirst Konverter™ assembly in the revolver with the firing pin at the 12 o'clock position, in-line with the hammer.
  4. Align the empty chamber under the hammer and carefully let the hammer down on the empty chamber for safety.
  5. Always carry the revolver with the hammer down on an empty chamber.

Speed Ejector

The Speed Ejector™ features an improved, large button ejector head combined with a fast, straight back ejector motion, for rapid and positive ejection of spent cases. This is much easier and faster than the awkward pivoting of the Colt style ejectors. The Speed Ejector™ is easily installed in a couple of minutes by removing the loading lever and cylinder pin, installing the Speed Ejector™ cylinder pin (with attached ejector housing) and then reinstalling the loading lever with the single screw that retains it. Done!
