It was a problem with the originals. So, in the spirit of the originals, Uberti ensures it's a problem with their replica as well. I think the lever drop only happens with full bp loads (can anyone confirm?). Solution was to lift the lever back up between shots with one hand
, or if only one hand was available, slap the lever against something (leg, saddle, etc.) to push it back up between shots. There were only 1100 or so Walker's made, so probably not significant to publish issues or fixes.
