Re: BP cap and ball cartridge conversions...
B27. I was up at Mule Camp, in Conyers a few years back, and thought I'd give it a try. Was gonna get a 1849 Wells Fargo Colt and a conversion cylinder for 32 Smith. Gun was 189 bucks. I was shocked. It'd been a few years since I'd bought any cap-n-ball, and while I knew Old Armys cost, I wasn't aware that Uberti had gone up like that. But anyway, the gun was 189. The cylinder was two and a quarter. I didn't do it. At the time I could get a new S&W J, or a Ruger Single Six 32 H&R for that same 400, or less.
