uberti walker

Bought the dixie gunworks Uberti Walker as a kit couple months back
It too had a little "gliche" in hammer pull.
After I did all the exterior filing sanding and bluing,
I went to work on the innards.
Just needed a little polishishimg, works smooth now.
I wouldn't be afraid to buy it.
I haven't shot for actual accuracy yet. Too cold and windy.
But one hand offhand at 20 yds, I was within a 4 inch diameter group.
But dang it is heavy to hold one hand arms length!
Mine empty 4.55 pounds
Buy it and shoot it!!
Many times in shipping and handgling the barrel wedge can get jammed too tight and cause cylinder lock up.
It can also happen to a newbie that pushes it too hard. Takes a little practice to know how tight to push the wedge in.
After several shots you may notice the gun get stiff. This is normal with Black Powder.
A good lube job will help retard this.
my Walker kit (2 photos) and an Armi San Marcos 44cal 851 navy, which technically was never made in the originals.
