Has anyone heard of a A. Walker muzzleloader? I think it may be a 32-40, as the guy has a bullet mold tool that came with it, and I can make out those numbers on the side of it. He was wondering about the value of it, and I haven't seen one like it.

32-40 is a cartridge and it is possible that the mold was made to cast a bullet for that cartridge. Most old original muzzle loaders were meant to use round balls except at the end of the muzzle loader era many were made to use picket ball (short pointy bullets) and/or cylindrical conical bullets with the aid of a false muzzle for loading. It's possible that the rifle you mention was designed to use a 32-40 bullet. Did you notice if it had a false muzzle or if the muzzle had holes. These would have been used to attach the false muzzle.

As for the rifle itself, no idea.
