Colt 1851 (Cartridge Conversion)

Colt 1851 Navy with a cartridge conversion. This is a reproduction of the gun used by Clint Eastwood in TGTBaTU produced by Cimmaron Arms.

Only trait is a loading gate so this weapon can fire metallic cartridges. In films, these guns are commonly place in anachronistic time periods such as the civil war, due to the safer method of firing cartridge blanks instead of cap and ball blank shot.

Colt 1851 Navy (Richards-Mason Conversion)

Colt 1851 Navy with Richards-Mason cartridge conversion - .38 Long Colt.
The Colt 1851 Navy with a Richards-Mason cartridge conversion made to look like a POS used by Russell Crowe in the film The Quick and the Dead (1995).

When cartridge became popular in the 1870s, percussion revolvers became dated. To fix this, a cartridge conversion method was created by Charles B. Richards and William Mason, employees of Colt at the time. The conversion proved popular and allowed gunslingers to keep their favorite guns, but now easier and faster to reload.
