1847 Walker Kit
With a 9-inch round barrel and more than four pounds of weight, the Colt® Walker was a weapon for the toughest soldiers and lawmen on the frontier. Prior to the introduction of the .357 Magnum in 1935, no revolver was more powerful. Inspired by Captain Samuel H. Walker of the U.S. Mounted Rifles, it fired .44 caliber balls “cast 32 to the pound.” The deadly effects of the Walker’s power during the Mexican War proved once and for all that revolvers had a significant role in battle. This revolver is an exact replica of the Colt® Walker revolver and comes in a pre-assembled kit. This kit will require final finishing such as sanding, bluing, and polishing allowing you to truly make it your own! The Walker kit usually comes with an unfinished white frame and barrel, fit with a rough walnut grip. The loading lever and hammer are already finished and case-hardened. Includes all the internal parts which are already fit for function from the factory. A conversion cylinder will require fitting to work with this model due to tolerance variances for all kit-type guns.
