Big .45 Colt Conversion
pictured gun is stainless steel Bisley with LCS custom ebony grips, oversized 6 shot 45 colt cylinder
For our big 45 Conversion we install a new barrel, a steel ejector rod housing with checkered ejector rod button, and an oversize 5 or 6 shot cylinder. These are done on Ruger™ frames only and we suggest the Bisley™ model for its superior grip and recoil control either in the Blackhawk™ model with adjustable sights or the Vaquero Bisley™. With a 5 shot cylinder and a 7 1/2' barrel you can expect the following velocities:
240-260 gr. JHP 1700 fps 27 Knock Out
260 gr. cast 1750 fps 29 KO
310/320 gr. cast 1600 fps 31 KO
340 gr. cast 1500 fps 32 KO
370 gr. cast 1400 fps 33 KO
Conversion in blue: $3,800
Conversion in stainless steel: $4,200
