    I ordered the civil war Konverter for my 1858 Uberti just minor dremeling and it fit into my 1858 perfectly. Have yet to fire it but I am looking forward to shooting it. Timing was perfect good job Kirst. The only dremeling I did was on the foot of the rear plate and a little on the edges of the rear plate. I’m pleased with my purchase.

    I bought a gated Kirst Konverter for my 1858 Uberti New Model Army second hand, only to find the return spring for the firing pin had failed. While checking out the Kirst Konverter website I saw where where they offered a Lifetime No B.S. Warranty so I figured what have I got to lose and sure enough as long as I paid the shipping they would fix my converter gate. Long story shorter , they sent me back a brand new gate and when I had some fitting issues and sent them an email Mr. Kirst himself emailed me back and asked me to call him – he had me describe my fit issue and told me exactly what to do and I have been having fun shooting this gun for the last few weeks. Thank You Mr. Kirst, as soon as I can afford it I’m going to be buying another Uberti 1858 with a gated Kirst Konverter

    I have a lovely 44 colt gated conversion for my old pietta 1858. Minor fitting and everything works. Made my own heeled bullets and the thing is a tack driver. The 44 colt cylinder is my favorite I hope there is always a supply.

    I just received my 45LC converter, it took 3 minutes of filing and it is a perfect fit and the action is smooth. I don’t think I could have fit any better. I love my 1858 Remington 45 Colt. I will purchase another converter for my 36 call. next.
