Safety notch added to conversion cylinder?
« on: May 01, 2020, 06:16:46 PM »
On my Uberti Remington the safety notches on the cap and ball cylinder function as far as the hammer locking the cylinder between chambers.

Has anyone had the safety notch cut done on the conversion cylinder cap?

You might not be able to have it on the sixth location because of the locating pin hole but even one notch location would work. Then you can load all six
rounds safely.

I may look at this mod and have the skills and equipment to do the job. Retired Toolmaker with equipped shop.

I believe the new Howell's 6 shot cylinders come with one safety notch pre-cut.
