Greetings. First post in the Blackpowder Forum.

I had an opportunity to handle a battered Walker Colt recently at a gunshow and was suitably impressed. Which companies produce the highest quality Walker Colt reproductions? Walker Colt owners: How do you like yours? Thanks a bunch.

Superb quality comes with a price.

Uberti

Pietta is getting better every year.

( sorry, not intended to be off-topic. I KNOW that Pedersoli only makes two repros but they are excellent ones.)

"Persoli or Uberti"

Pedersoli do not make Colt Walker replica!

Just Remington M1858 and Roger and Spencer, their revolver collection is quite small.

Of the available replicas, now that Colt no longer sells them, SELECTED Uberti guns are the best quality.

People wonder why some retailers sell Uberti guns cheaper than others.
This is because Uberti sells, slightly LESSER quality finished guns to them.

These are still Uberti guns, and the quality is very good, it's just that in order to supply a "price beater" model, Uberti give these guns a very slightly lesser quality finish.
You have to compare them side by side to detect the difference.

The retailers like Cimmarron, who charge more, also are offering Uberti's top-of-the-line quality guns.
Top quality Uberti's are sold by Cimmarron and Navy Arms.
EMF sells the slightly lesser finished guns.
I THINK Dixie sells the lesser finished guns.
