there must be more than one kit for this conversion. The one Ive seen uses and replacement bolt and replacement breechblock. Bolt is simple replacement. Breechblock is unscrewed with breechblock tool supplied with 77/50. New Tool should come with conversion kit. The block will be SS but should still be coated with antiseize grease. My gun came with the conversion already done, didn't shoot for beans so I took it back to original and it is a tackdriver now. Goodluck...Chief aka Maxx Load

sorry i should have been more clear , but was in a hurry when i posted , I have several other black powder guns so i am aware of do's and don'ts with BP , what i need to know with this kit is how to change the front of the bolt, this one you have to take the Ruger bolt apart and change out the front part and put in a differnet firing pin maybe?

Mine had a aftermarket bolt so I would need to look it up in a parts diagram. I would think the bolt would come apart similar to any other Ruger bolt. Yes you will need another firing pin that works with the shotgun primer. You might post this in the "gunsmithing" section, sure you would get an answer there.
Sorry
