    Worked wonderfully on an 1860 (.36 cal) snub nose Colt. High quality. Easy installation.

      Thank you for taking the time out to give your feedback.It is much appreciated. And please let us know if we can help you again. The 1860 .44cal Snub nose cal uses Item# 040.101 and the .36cal aka 1861, 1862 Snubnose uses Item# 000.101.

    Installation was easy, grinding the recoil shield took the most time, but with a Dremel tool and sanding drums, then polishing and blueing it looks like a professional job. Very satisfied,no timing issues. Shoots great. John

    WOW! I’m so happy I purchased the Kirst Konverter for my Uberti .36 caliber 1861 Colt Navy. I had some questions not covered on the Kirst website. I called Kirst for some answers before I made my purchase. Mr. Kirst himself called me back the same day. Mr. Kirst was very kind, patient, caring and genuinely interested with helping me select the correct product and answered all of the technical gunsmithing project questions I had because I wanted to do the project myself. During the project I needed a little more help with some fitting issues so I called again. Within the hour Mr. Kirst called me back and he was extremely helpful directing me to successful completion. With Mr. Kirst’s coaching I had so much fun doing this project. So much that I had to call Mr. Kirst and tell him how pleased I am with his product. The true enjoyment is in the fun shooting the conversion and the conversations the Kirst Konverter starts at the range. The Kirst Konverter is an extremely well designed and exceptionally well made. I highly recommend the Kirst Konverter! You will definitely not be disappointed. Watching the Kirst made video and speaking with Mr. Kirst sealed the deal. Get one for yourself, you’ll be happy you did. Thank you Mr. Kirst!

    The cylinder fit perfect right out of the box. Had to shave a little off the bottom of the back plate, just like in the instructions, and it fit perfect too. I took my time with the loading port ,couple of days (cutting and checking cutting and checking) , and it works just fine. This is a great product and i will buy another one for my 45. The only issue i have is the loading gate is so tight to open it hurts my 21st century wimpy fingers.

  7. Richard H Bartolowits

    I purchased both the Konverter and the ejector assy. I did my own gunsmithing, took about 3 hours, but was being very careful to ensure I didn’t over-smith the gate port. After some small adjustments to my action, which I knew I would most likely need to do, the gun was together and ready for the range. I am very pleased with the way the design functions and looks. This fired great right from the start, and the action is very smooth. I am very happy and would recommend if you are going to convert to 45LC, don’t waste money on other conversion kits, I did, and this is the only one I am truly happy with and proud to show.

  8. Matt Costen

    I sent Mr Krist my Ubertie Walker Colt for a conversion to 45LC. They cut the loading area and installed the cylinder kit and did an action job. The gun was a Wedding present from my wife and the upgrade was my idea a few years later. These guys earned all 5 stars. Fantastic job on everything! I’m now going to redo a pieta Navy Sheriff’s Model in need of help. I’m gonna do the work myself. Should be fun.
