This R&D cartridge conversion is for the 1860 Pietta with engraving. The RD1860PE converts your Pietta 1860 Army style revolver to fire the .45 Colt or .45 Schofield cartridges! The cylinder has a five shot capacity, and to be able to use it in CAS competition, it was designed with 10 stop notches. The extra stop notches are the safety notches and lock the chambers out of the firing chain. The 1860PE was approved for SASS use by the Territorial Governors. The RD1860PE includes the authentic Naval Battle scene engravi1ng. The 1860PE is to be used with either smokeless Cowboy loads or Black Powder 45 Colt/Schofield ammunition. See our large selection of cowboy ammuntion.
(If, after installation, you are unsure of the fit, please take your revolver to a competent gunsmith or contact R & D Gun Shop to make sure you have the cylinder installed correctly.)
