    Only Customs

    Only Customs , and they are based on the Ruger Old Army .
    No production revolvers that I am aware of though ?
    Not sure the Market would support it anywayz . Thats probably why there aint any . Most people are into Historically "somewhat" accurate copies anywayz . I'd buy one though :D LOL....
    Plus the accuracy of a .451 to .457 with a BP charge of around 900 FPS is pretty accurate , and not too sure the .50 could match it ? But for terminal knockdown power of the .50 would be awsome !
    You should start milling one up today for us :D

    I saw one that the seller claimed was a .50 but I didn't even look at it because I didn't have the money and I was about 10 years old.

    I think it would be cool as hell.

    I'll take it. Lol. I wonder if you can use a .50 ball? Don't most BP revolvers shave a bit of the ball when loaded? It would be easier to find .50 balls I believe, if they just shave down to fit.

    Actually they purposely made it to shoot standard .50 Round Ball which measure .490 , and bore is .485 .
    Or conicals at .488 ................
    There you go , and I think he is still making them to this date actually . Bring your Bank Account :D

    Well, now, my Brother-in-Law, who used to be in the business, used to say he was annoyed at a guy shooting a .458 Win Mag. at the range and so was gonna show up with his .50 Walker and teach him a lesson.

    First, I have no evidence he ever actually got to a range. Second, of course a black powder revolver isn't teaching anyone who shoots a gun that disconnects retinas ANYTHING. Third, I didn't believe him when he said he had a .50 Walker (had to be a coupla decades ago now). Fourth, he never did do it. Fifth and finally, my Brother-in-Law, whom my Father refered to as "that clown," is FOS in basically everything he says and the very little he does.

    I've never seen or heard of one, but, doesn't mean one wasn't out there.
