No interest in converting mine, just curious.
These are old time Smith & Wessons, known for their endurance. Also, they usually are used with mild .44 Special ammunition, so far as I know are superb shooters.
I haven't done such a conversion, only actually seen a few, most of them the older .38/44 Heavy Duty revovler (fixed sights) which have the old super smooth S&W DA action.
