Installing 1858 Remington .22 Conversion Kit
NOTE: Clean the barrel insert and cylinder chambers before shooting.
Make sure the revolver is empty and place the hammer in the half-cock position. Remove the loading lever screw and slide the loading lever out. While supporting the cylinder, remove the cylinder pin and then the cylinder. Remove the 2 barrel adapters and 2 washers from the .22 Conversion Kit barrel insert. Install the proper barrel adapter or washer and slide the barrel insert into the barrel. Find the small radius edge on the barrel flange and position it down, to allow cylinder pin clearance. Place the Konverter ring on the cylinder and install it, then install the cylinder pin or ejector assembly. Install the loading lever with screw, then latch shut.
LOADING: Remove the Konverter to load, see instructions here.
LOADING PORT: To load and eject while the Konverter is installed, you must first grind a loading port into the frame, see instructions here.
