Model 1849 "Magnum" cartridge conversion?
Hankering after a small revolver, and wanted a 1849 for a while now. But the power is a bit on the low side. I see that the 1862 is billed as a "pocket model" in .36, but I hear that the frames are bigger?
I was also wondering about conversions, as sometimes I just want to play around without a big clean up after.
I think a 62 with a 38 Spl conversion would be pretty cool if they are small, or maybe a 49 with something like a 32 H&R conversion. Has anyone tried it? Is there enough metal? Does cylinder length play into it?
On a side note, I've always wanted a Bearcat too, and just like pistols scaled to the smaller rounds. Saw one converted to .327 Federal on the Gunblast site
