All Colt open tops are close enough that you can use any as a guide for the Walker. I had a 1849 pocket that I had to take apart several times to work out bugs/problems, so when I got my Walker, it was a snap, single actions are pretty simple and no parts that go spring into oblivion as with double actions or autos.
:evil:

For that matter, all Colts and clones are close enough that if you seen the insides of one, you have pretty much seen them all.

About any instructions for any model Colt will do if your pencil is halfway sharp on the end.

If it isn't, you probably shouldn't take it apart anyway!

I like VTI Gunparts website because of the exploded view they have to show parts.

Uberti has a little pdf manual at the bottom of this web page also -

The Walker has a weird shaped mainspring that needs to be clamped to assist breakdown and reassembly.

As Hellgate says, the Walker has one oddity compared with other Colt cap and ball revolvers - the mainspring in the grip frame. It needs to be clamped down before you remove the grip frame screws. I use a stout plastic wire tie to prevent marring the grip frame.

I use padded vise grips.

That main spring is found in Whitney Dragoons and most 1st Mod. Dragoons. I lighten them enough ( to get a 4 lb. hammer draw) to take them out with no tools.
