'58 Remington conversion cylinders for Pietta or Uberti made revolvers

All centerfire Kirst Konverters are manufactured for use in modern, reproduction Cap & Ball revolvers with steel frames; they can fire Standard Pressure and Cowboy Action ammunition. Don’t use +P ammo or any other high-pressure ammunition. Note: The use of jacketed ammo may cause slightly more wear to the bore of the barrel than using lead bullets.

The 1858 Remington .44 caliber Cap & Ball revolver can be converter to .45 LC and .45 Schofield, or .45 ACP. Be careful to never install a .45 caliber Kirst Konverter® in a revolver with a .36 caliber barrel.

Kirst Konverters for the 1858 Remington .36 caliber Cap & Ball revolver are available in .38 Special.

No F.F.L. paperwork is required to purchase a Kirst Konverter. All Kirst Konverters carry a lifetime "No B.S." warranty, plus they are made with pride in the good, old U.S.A.

Introducing the new “Equalizer” Konverter for all 1858 Remington Revolvers.

The Kirst “Equalizer” conversion cylinder will work in all Uberti or Pietta percussion revolvers, regardless of when they were manufactured. NOTE: The original Kirst 1858 Remington “Safety Cylinder” Konverter would not reliably work in Uberti 1858 Remington revolvers produced after 2017.

To remedy that problem Walt Kirst redesigned the 1858 Remington Konverter with 5 evenly spaced chambers and a hammer actuated firing pin retainer, located between each of the chambers. It’s called the “Equalizer” Konverter.

The “Equalizer” Konverter works with all existing Kirst Konverter Rings, including the Pale Rider version and the Gated version that can be paired up with our Improved Remington Ejector, which works on all calibers from .22LR to .45LC.

It’s totally up to you! Buy the “Equalizer” Konverter set (a Kirst Konverter and Ring) or just buy the “Equalizer” cylinder, to use with your existing Kirst 1858 Remington Konverter Ring.

Remember to play it safe: Always carefully lower the hammer down between the chambers, so the firing pin is retained in the recess between the chambers or lower the hammer down on an empty chamber.
