The Uberti Walker is a nice C&B revolver for around $400.
Thanks man! That makes me feel better. One because he didn't get rid of an amazing.gun, and two I.don't have to shell out big bucks for one already have the pyrodex. Would you say its a .44?

No kidding...that woulda been a HEARTBREAKER, brother.

Modern reproductions are still VERY cool, and as mentioned very affordable.

Good luck, man.

They are also VERY fun to shoot, IMO. My remington NMA replica is one of my favorite range toys.

Camshaft, you are welcome. You will need some #11 caps and some .454 Round balls. Remington caps work best. You can use Pyro 2F or 3F. I much prefer the Triple 7 . T7 is clean and does not need lube in the chambers which is a mess. T7 will not cause flash rust etc. if you don't get around to cleaning the gun for a few days. The Walker was the most powerful handgun made from 1847 to 1935. The .357 was more powerful after 1935. The reason I mention this is. The chambers are very large holding rifle charges of 60 grs. You will need to compress Pyro. Bp or other Subs. Be sure and follow the Insts. on loading. You will not hurt the gun. The ignition may be poor. Make sure you clean the nipple area of the chambers. If you have any questions PM me. This is the one I shoot.

OK so it turns out I wont be going to the show this weekend. However I found this gun online. Can anyone give me some input on what they think about it? Does it seem like a good buy? To me it seems a little rough aroung the edges.

I'm do not own a Walker and so i can't say much on its condition, but i absolutely refuse to buy through a FFL when it is not required by law. That listing indicates that the seller requires the transfer go through a FFL (add at least $25 to final price for that); that could be by mistake but should be verified/questioned before purchasing.

It doesn't look bad overall to me. http://www.cabelas.com/product/Shooting/Black-Powder/Pistols-Revolvers%7C/pc/104792580/c/104701680/sc/104503680/Uberti-Model-1847-Walker-44-Caliber-Revolver/740067.uts?destination=%2Fcatalog%2Fbrowse%2Fshoot ing-black-powder-pistols-revolvers%2F_%2FN-1100201%2FNs-CATEGORY_SEQ_104503680%3FWTz_l%3DUnknown%253Bcat10 4792580%253Bcat104701680&WTz_l=Unknown%3Bcat104792 580%3Bcat104701680%3Bcat104503680
Of course, the same one is available for $399~ from cabelas, brand new with instructions, and that is only $50 more than the seller's reserve price. For $50, i'd get the spanker.
