1847 Colt Walker

I am searching for a replica of this pistol for a Lonesome Dove Display I am putting together. Anyone beside Uberti make a (Firing or non-firing) replica of this pistol?

Thanks

You might find an ASM or Palmetto on one of the auction sites.

Thanks for the reply. Do you have a link to the auction sites you mentioned?

I've got an ASM for sale for $350 under the 'Buy, Sell, and Trade' heading at the top of this page.

Auction sites:

www.Gunbroker.com
www.AuctionArms.com
www.GunsAmerica.com

The last time I looked, there were half dozen or more listed on GB

Welcome to the forum Sixgunkid.

The only NON firing replica 1847 Colt Walker I have seen is this insanely expensive Japanese one for $430.00 at this link......
http://www.tokyohobby.net/harthord-c...model-gun.html

Of course that price is because that's all the Japanese can have is non firing models. But for that insane above price, you could get a FIRING one on Gunbroker.com firearms auctions for much less. Or as Fingers mentioned he has one for sale here at the black powder buy sell trade forum for $350.00 which is $80.00 less than the NON firing Japanese Walker model.

Would you settle for this NON firing 2nd model Dragoon for $89.00 instead of the actual Walker? Perhaps you could modify it to look like a Walker. The only basic differences are a slightly shorter cylinder and barrel (I think) and the rammer has a different catch.

Dixie gun works had firing Uberti Walkers for $375, or in kit form for $315. Actually, the non-kit walkers are out of stock.

I have an ASM 1847 Walker that I have been thinking about selling. I bought it about a year ago and have not fired it yet. It is in good condition. If you are interested I could send you some pictures.

The ASMs I have

are all solid revolvers and fun to shoot. so either of the ones offered above would be great. And of course Hardy's Colt stands on its own merit.

I am going shooting tomorrow and I think I'll just take one of the big revolvers along.
