New Triple Lock Project Reboring Cylinder
I have a cut down S&W Triple Lock that was converted to a carry gun with 4" barrel and target sights some 50+ years ago. It shoots poorly, in terms of accuracy. I have acquired a .455 TL barrel of WWI vintage that begs to be on active duty again. I want a 45Colt ! My question is this, how practical would it be to bore out the 44 S&W special cylinder to 45 Colt. What issues must be addressed to make this old warhorse a practical shooter. Is there much of a delta from the 44spl rim vs the 45 colt rim for head space. Is there sufficient metal in the 44 spl cylinder to ream it out to 45? Will there be timing issues? Your expert comments are much appreciated.
