With a 9-inch, round barrel and weighing more than four pounds, the Colt® Walker was a weapon for the toughest soldiers and lawmen on the frontier. Prior to the introduction of the .357 Magnum in 1935, norevolver was more powerful. Inspired by Captain Samuel H. Walker of the U.S. Mounted Rifles, it fired .44 caliber balls “cast 32 to the pound.” The deadly effects of the Walker’s power during the Mexican War proved once and for all that revolvers had a place in battle. Features a blue finish and case-hardened frame. R&D Conversion Cylinder available.

Only issue I had with this revolver is the loading lever would fall to the ramming position when fired with large loads, however the original colt walker did this as well so no big deal; tie a piece of leather to hold it when firing like they did in the old days (Posted on 12/3/12)

This "horse pistol" is not for the feint of heart as it weighs in at 4.5 pounds, but it's such a pleasure to shoot that one quickly overlooks the size.
I use it as both a target pistol and for civil war re-enacting and have found the timing superb and the recoil is practically nonexistent.
I use .454 balls, 40 grains of black powder and Remington #10 caps in addition to "bore butter." The bore butter helps to prevent chain fire and it also reduces powder fouling.
The bottom line this walker is very well made and just plain fun to shoot. (Posted on 9/8/12)
