I've read about them done that way on this forum and it does avoid the need to modify the face of the cylinder but the chambers would still have to be lengthened if converted to 45 Colt; not so for ACP/AR.

IIRC there was discussion surmizing that if the gun was sent to the factory for the conversion, that's the way it was done.
