There is a wimpy little clip. Anything over 45 grains seems to release it. Most people use a rubber band or strap. Some develop a habit of slapping it back up each time it drops. The originals did this and the reproductions faithfully do this as well.
Does the Walker even have a clip? From pictures I see, the loading lever handle seems to be suspended underneath the barrel and held up by a weak spring tension. The Dragoons have the clip, but they still come loose with stout loads.
Climb onto the saddle and ride with me through the last remaining Wild West frontier in the world. Where a man is judged solely by his actions, and every action carries grave consequences.
