    Yep , that's a Colt 1860, from the 1990 Signature Series reissue. Basically an Uberti , but actually finished at the Colt Old Dome building.


    Here's some info on original cartridge conversion pistols. http://www.americanhandgunner.com/exclusive-web-extra-colts-cartridge-conversions/

    What caliber?

    Originals were an obsolete .44 Colt.

    The repros are chambered for .45 Colt. or .38 Special....

    Too bad they didn't make it in the correct caliber. Starline makes new brass and I see Black Hills is making .44 Colt factory ammo in their Cowboy line.

    after doing some research, I found out that this Richland Arms was made by Armi Sao Paolo, but still not sure if this conversion cylinder will work.
