I just bought a Uberti Walker and found that the generic loading stands offered at Cabelas, Possible Shop and other black powder outlets are not well suited for this weapon. My friend has a 1851 Navy and it seems to work well with his gun. I have also read that the generic stand works on the 1860 Army and 1858 Remington. I did want a compact, collapsable stand I could easily take to the range, so I decided to build my own. I made the stand of a hardwood, red oak, and used a spar varnish to finish it off. I also used a solid brass, three-screw hinge which is more sturdy than that found on the generic stand. It fits the Walker perfectly.

oh on the pic is my 1851 however i use it with all of my guns as for the stand being collapsable. i put a handle on mine and use it to hold my stuff does pretty good.

This fits my Remingtons and smaller colts but not the Walker, but it could be made to fit by opening some of the dimensions up.

hahahahah looks similar to mine. except you spent more time on yours. I put mine together in about 30 minutes or less. and have kept it that way for the past two years. just no need to redo what is not broke
