Catalog Price list





Our basic packages offer a useful mix of well-integrated modifications to produce handier, more flexible revolvers.

Please note: In the interests of dependability and improved function, we will automatically add freewheel pawl modification (cat. no. B102) to trigger tunes on New Vaqueros, New Model Flat Tops and any other models with the new indexing pawl system. The indexing function will be retained but can be deactivated on request to provide a true free-spin pawl at no charge.

Where a conversion includes rebluing the parts set, price is for gun in excellent condition with minimal bluing wear and use. Abused guns showing excessive dings, nicks and bluing wear will incur extra costs. Likewise stainless guns are rebrushed to best appearance. Abused guns will incur extra costs.
