The .22 Conversion Kit fits the 1858 Remington revolvers manufactured by Uberti & Pietta ***Make sure you select the right converter for your guns as per the manufacture year of the gun. Also, please confirm your base pin is tight before purchasing this item.***
This .22 Conversion Kit will also fit ASM with minor adjustments. All .22 Conversion Kits fire standard .22 LR ammo; including .22 Long and .22 Short. This kit works with both brass and steel frame 1858 replicas. NEVER DRY FIRE!!
One Konverter will allow the conversion of both .36 caliber and .44 caliber to .22 LR. The .36 caliber barrel adapter and a .44 caliber adapter bushing in the kit along with adjustment washers allow you to adjust the cylinder to barrel gap for any manufacturer of the full size Remington models. If you own multiple percussion revolvers, one Konverter can easily be moved from gun to gun.
If you choose to use the new Improved Ejector you will need to cut a small diameter port in the revolver frame. This way you can load and unload without removing the cylinder. Our new Improved Remington Ejector Assembly was designed to work with our .22 Conversion Kit, as well as all other calibers.
Please Note – We are occasionally seeing loose base pins in both Uberti & Pietta 1858’s due to Italian factory tolerance problems. This can cause chamber misalignment in the .22. The solution is an oversized diameter base pin, or make sure your gun has a very tight base pin before converting to the .22 caliber.
