Ive converted a .41 swiss rimfire peabody, bought a surplus original breech block from a company that had leftover spare parts.  Cant remember their name but blocks sold out.

Faily easy mod, spring loaded firing pin.  Look up on swiss rifles, peabody conversions on internet.

Frank, at Providence Tool is doing rim fire to center fire conversions. He fits a new breach block and firing pin, with a new hammer (if it needs one). The rim fire hammers are usually a little wider than the center fire ones. He is working on a Swiss Peabody right now.

I have converted a .41 RF Swiss peabody, with retractable spring loaded firing pin using a surplus original breech block.

Worked well.
