Quick Overview

Details

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.

Excellent, what else can I say Review by Arky49

This revolver by Uberti is big and very heavy, but that's the way they were back in 1847. It's quite a hog leg. You can load it with 50gr of powder but I preferred 40. It was accurate right out of the box. It will shoot high as most cap and ball revolvers will but once you get used to where it hits, it's all good. Fit and finish were first rate and was easy to take down and clean. I highly recommend this one. It's a must for your collection. Oh, as always Taylor's & CO were great. They are who I go to for all my black powder guns. (Posted on 9/5/13)

Bought my Uberti Walker 4 years ago; I shoot it whenever I can! It's my favorite Cap&ball Revolver I have; it's very big and very powerful ! Given that it holds up to 60grains of powder where as the dragoon's max is 50!

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)

Uberti firearms are the top of the line when it comes to historical reproductions. Their fit and finish are simply first rate.

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)
