Z267 .58 Conversion Block for Musket Tins (Allin Conversion)
Description: Nice unissued conversion block from Bannermann's surplus. These wooden blocks were produced to hold the .58 rimfire musket cartridge for the Allin conversion. There are two rows of four. The middle brace was removed and replaced with a solid wooden block to hold a total of 8 Allin cartridges on the top and a box of 8 Allin cartridges below. The majority of these conversion blocks will no longer hold the actual cartridges due to shrinking.
Measures: 4.5" x 3.75" x 1.5"
