Belgian Centaur with Thuer Conversion
« on: January 13, 2014, 06:07:39 PM »

Built for a fellow enthusiast and SASS member, Lefty Dude


This was worth the work!



Early Belgian Centaur sporting a NEW IMPROVED Thuer



This revolver also received a "factory" type bluing to set off the skill and craftsmanship of the Belgian workers!



Enjoy these closeups................

That is a work of art. Does it come with the loading tools and cartridges? Can you do them in other sizes like a 36 caliber pocket?

Actually the NEW IMPROVED Thuer conversion that I build is rear loading and uses centerfire cartridges, while looking traditional from the exterior. The Army version like this one is available in 45 Schofield (modern) or 44 Colt Heel base (a bit more traditional). The Navy is available in 38 Colt Heel Base and 41 Thuer (which is an internal lubed version utilizing a .386 bullet). I do not do anything for the pocket revolvers.....

Do you need to remove the cylinder to load it?

Yessir, just the same as an R&D!
This would still be faster than loading cap and ball and while it might could be slower than a Kirst my statement to most that think that speed would be necessary is; "if you are looking for a fast reload in a life or death situation, better buy a Glock"......

Truthfully, it's all about the "look".

Agreed I'm not looking for speed but it would look great boxed with a percussion cylinder

What's one go for in 45 Schofirld for an 1860?

They price point is $378.00 installed. This includes bluing or distressing to match your pistol, timing, action work etcetera........
There are issues that can cause that price to change (this particular Centaur had to have the arbor pulled, a clearance cut for the pawl, and then reinstalled as well as extensive hand mods due to tolerance stacking issues and previous mods done before it arrived here).

There are many options including cylinder scene engraving, custom finishes, and more!

It is best to contact me (info on my website linked below) when/if you are interested in one....
