Has anyone ever taken an 1860 and turned it into a 1851, or vice versa, with a frame, cylinder and barrel assembly that you purchased as individual parts for the same manufacturer of both revolvers? Maybe even creating a Sheriff's version, swapping brass for steel frames, etc.? I would think that doing so would be limited to same year of manufactured parts unless you were a good enough gunsmith to adapt parts from the manufacturer's same revolver series made many years past where the manufacturer updated his tooling. What put me onto this thought is the scene in the movie The Good, the Bad and the Ugly where Eli Wallach is in a gun store and assembles a revolver from separate parts.
