Convert to .50 cal paintball?
Is this possible to convert to .50 cal paintball?

Thats pretty interesting.
My guess is that since they use "fake shells", it might make it easier to convert?
However, the shells I would assume are .380. They would need to be bored out to .50 if you want to retain the cylinder.
Then you still have the barrel issue. Its .177. There doesnt seem to be nearly enough metal to bore out, but finding .50 pipe is pretty trivial. I guess you could remove the metal barrel (probobly pressed in?). Then bored it out to fit whatever pipe you will use as a barrel?
All seems doable

There is a guy on YouTube that converts these to 40 cal. He does it to BB/pellet revolvers that use the shells. He bores the cylinder for new shell size. He custom makes the shells. He removes the factory barrel and replaces with a machined 40 cal barrel. All of this works with the origainal gun parts. I think 50 cal is equal to or bigger than the outer barrel shroud of these guns.

That particular one, no because I think the barrel doesn't have enough meat to handle a .50cal barrel. The Dan Wesson model (same gun, different look) you can but requires new cylinder, and from my measurements I'm fairly certain the center of the barrel bore moves up to accommodate the larger rounds in the frame. A standard cylindrical barrel would have the new bore off-center.
But the Sellsword Khaos conversion is more practical - cheaper base revolver, Crosman Vigilante. Get it on sale at Canadiantire or PrincessAuto.
