To me, looks like those striker bottons might fall out during cocking... (^h

I wonder what just the unconverted cylinder costs? Seems it might be easy enough to do the modifications yourself. I didn't pay much more than that for my complete gun!

Will probably stay in when loaded, but they are most likely to fall out when inserting or removing the cylinder.  Certainly does look like the C&B mag cylinder was machined to accept the brass and buttons.  Black Hills has sold quite a few of these, however, so there is definitely a market for 'em.
