The improved performance cylinder for the Pietta 1860 Army is dis-contitued. Just as I was looking for one.

Try Taylors firearms in Winchester Va.
Nope. Tried them, that's where I see they're Discontinued. I e-mailed them hoping they could use their clout to have a run made, even at a premium, but I don't have much hope. No luck on e-bay, either. All dealers for that item are out.

Showed them on their site, sorry about that, good luck in your search. These are trying times and only going too get worse I guess.

Unmentionable = modern gun/ammo. "Improved performance" cylinder lets one make their cap 'n ball revolver into an unmentionable. 🤐😄

Yup, knew what unmentionable means - kinda figured that's what Improved Performance meant. Thanks.

$220 seems like an excellent deal for that. Probably the next thing needing a background check.

Once you use the conversion cylinder you will probably never go back to BP and Ball so long as you can get and reload your 45LC.

They work great especially with BP no copper jackets

I think that the reason for that may be political pressure due to the fact that a felon could have a BP shipped to his door and buy a cylinder to convert it to an undocumented unmentionable with no paper trail. However, he’d have a pretty hard time finding ammo, or getting reloading supplies in today’s market. Plus it would hardly be the weapon of choice, but I think that is one loophole that they are trying to close.

I don't understand that statement. It just isn't true - if that's the way you truly think, then why are you here?
There are revolvers (and other guns) available that are chambered for 44LC - I have 2, one a rifle and one a pistol.
The hassle of loading a conversion chambered gun is just that - a hassle.
I have cap and ball guns to shoot cap and ball, I have flintlocks to shoot flintlocks and will always "go back" (and forth) to cap and ball, flintlock or modern revolver - without the hassle.

Unmentionable cylinders use ammo that may be now either financially out of sight, flat made of unobtanium or both. Also most come with instructions limiting them to using "cowboy" loads only.
