Insufficient data but, generally no.  I have numerous c&b pistols with many thousands of rounds through them and all are if very fine condition mechanically.

Hi Wally, no it is not typical. However, if Pietta, you can get new parts here for low cost:

Also, since you use conversion cylinders, you may want to consider using the Wolff reduced power spring that minimizes conversion cylinder firing pin mushrooming and provides a nice trigger pull. You can get that spring here:

I think he meant three hands and hammer through one conversion cylinder but I also have to wonder what the hell is he feeding it.

Hi, I read it that 1/3 of the rounds fired were with the conversion cylinder.
