These Starr pistols where sure built better than the Colts of the era, comparable to those Rems. I would think with the Starr and Remingtons you could reload much faster than the Colt. Just don't drop the knob in the dirt! Would have liked to have found this without the conversion but beggers can't be choosers.
Best regards,
Bob

One of my favorite regiments the 2nd Colorado Cavalry Union issued one Starr revolver and be Starr Carbine per trooper. Have you ever fired the Starr revolver ? Has long has they can hit center mass at 5 yards that would be adequate combat accuracy at least 96 percent of all police shootings are under 5 y ards closer to 3 feet.

Great piece! Thanks for sharing!
I am fond of Starrs myself: I have a double action revolver that I prize.

I've probably seen more cartridge conversions of Starr revolvers in the last few years than conversions of Colts. The Starr and all other period weapons were never intended to reloaded in combat conditions but in the rear with the gear or in a lull in combat. I'd not relish trying to reload one in combat or whilst on horseback.
