They just feel good in your hand, dont they? When you touch em off, you just drift back in time to the battle.

Bill speaking of BP Powder battle weapons. The Colt Mdl. of 1847 "Walker" firing a 230 grs. pickette over 60 grs of BP was a one Hell'ev weapon. The Scotch Irish sons of Europe their version of the Commanche tribes who settled in Texas were exellent horseman armed with these Walkers. These Rangers ended the control of the Southern Plains by the American NDN and the Mexicans from the south. Each man armed with 2 Walkers and 2 extra cylinders on a good horse were the Fighter Pilots of their time.

I have the 1851. But I really like the 1858. It looks a lot stronger. I hope to pick one up.

Durango that Walker was the first Magnum. No joke. As far as just casual handling and shooting is concerned, the .44 magnum doesnt have anything on this piece. We were shooting one into the river last fall when you missed us at the rondezvous. ha

Dog gone always missing out on the fun. The history of American Military handguns as an offensive weapon started here. Yep it was 1937 before any handgun could match it. I like shoot'in this one. Thats my story any way.

I got mine from one of the $179 sales at Cabelas. It has been a source of fun, no doubt. But, I am impressed with the thing. Its a shooter.
