Some of you may have seen the Walker snubby I posted on the "Official THR Walker thread".

I am going to go ahead and fit a new barrel to the barrel lug and would like some help.

What I need from any and all willing to respond is this.

On my revolver, the barrel diameter is .785 where it enters the lug. I need to know the barrel diameter (OD) at the muzzle of a full length barrel.

I will use a chunk of barrel and turn it to match an italian barrel but I still need that number.

Of course if anyone can supply the diameters from an original Walker, I would use those.

Thanks for the help.

Quite a variance in diameters. I like that.

I guess the first thing I'll do is to make up some dummy barrels from wood and see what I like. It is a Walker so it's not like the taper is going to lighten the thing!

ANd thanks for the help guys.

Why are you wanting to chop a Dragoon? Fast draw?

Seriously, any questions, ask and I'll be glad to offer suggestions.

After a bit more research, I am coming to believe it was built by ASM not Uberti as I originally believed.

Still it's worth repairing and shooting.
