Go to Uberti's website. They make a good reproduction.

Original, genuine colt walkers are not $1300. Only 1200 were ever made, and IIRC, less than 130 are known to exist today. Poor examples sell for five figures, with the nicer ones approaching a half mil. In 2008, the nicest known example in existence, sold for $920,000.

Here is a link to the story from outdoorlife.com....

What you are seeing are either replicas, or the Colt "F" model reissue.

The gun in the pic does look like a Walker. Or at least one of the Dragoon
models.

Probably the most common (and most available as a repro) 36 caliber is
the 1851 Navy, as others have said. You might want to look for a 1861
Navy. Looks more like a 1860 Army, but is 36 cal, and has 10 more years
of development and refinement over the '51.

Several Italian companies make reproductions---for the price of a really
beat up original you can buy your dad a pair of good quality repro's, and
all the powder/balls/caps and misc goodies to shoot them.

What's a good brand to look into?

That's all kinda disappointing. I wonder if he knew what he was selling.

That is a reproduction of a Colt Walker. Note a close look shows the loading lever does not have a latch. You can get a good reproduction for around $400 dollars. As mentioned orginal Walkers are very rare. That said Colt did make 2nd Gen. Walkers for awhile. These can be found for around $1,500 dollars. Colt used Italian parts by ASM to build these guns. The Uberti Walker is a nice C&B revolver for around $400.

This would be a fun shooter, and not break the bank. You will need a pound of Pyrodex and a tin of caps to go with this.
