Not a C&B but I have a Cimarron 1873 in 44-40. It's nice. Do have to keep an eye on the hammer screw tho.

To my knowledge Pietta never made a Walker. Are you sure that wasn't ASM?

My Model P (.45 Long Colt) is an Uberti via Cimmaron. My Walker-Colt came from the Cabels'a catalog.

hhhmm,yes the other walker was an ASM,difference between the Uberti and the ASM was that big that I sold the ASM after two weeks ,the guy who purchased the gun from me removed all the proofmarks gave it an antique look and she performs well as a wall hanger now, believe me the quality of your gun depends on the year of producing,my Walker Uberti was one of the first, serial 15,all the Ubertis I had where made early in the eighties and
the quality from those period guns are better than the later production guns,I had recently a new Uberti Walker model in my hands ,and again I have to say that the blueing and finish on the early guns is better done ,but this only goes for the C&B revolvers and not for the single actions, I'm no fan of today's ASM replicas ,but I have one for about twenty years now and it is one of my favorit shooters,Pietta are good guns but the quality and finish of the (old) Uberti's is a bit better,

AWA bought out ASM in 2000 but if my memory is right ASM quit making percussion revolvers around 92.

I have 2 Uberti C&B revolvers and two Cimarron(s). The two Cimarron cartridge guns needed some work right out of the box. But are good shooters now. The C&B(s) have been great from day one. No complaints on them.

My most recent was an Uberti 1858 (Remington) New Model Army .44 in SS that is really a nice gun. Great action, fit and finish #1.
