    Just took some outside pics of the Walker Avenging Angel I made last week. Thought they were worth sharing in a new thread

    Sooo... Wrong... But... Sooo... Right.

    Looks good. I can only imagine the glory of the fireball this device could conjure forth.

    Oh man, put 60 grains in there with a ball... that would be a nice big fireball and a ton of smoke. It may even create a mini concussion wave. :D

    Even if you don't kill him right off, a near miss will suck the oxygen from your opponents lungs...and if he's standing close enough, it'll set him afire!

    I will be the first to say it out loud. At first to see a Walker cut down almost made the eyes water and stomach tighten up. But after looking at all the pics I started looking at my Walker with ideas on same or close to same. Darn that thing is awesome, would love to see it belch flame and smoke, doubt that my skinny butt could handle it but I would give it a go at least once.

    Here's a photo of some of the originals.
    Note the Walker in among 'em.


    Nice piece you've made there.

    I don't remember as I have had them many years.
    I love everything snubby & have been collecting pics for a long while.
    Just looked it up.
    The Utah Gun Collectors Association October 2000 40th Anniversary Gun Show
    Here's a link to the show's stuff -- not the page where I got the images.
    I think I got them from the original show

    Actually the big one in that photo of all the snubs is a third model Dragoon and not a Walker. I've seen that display before and I love it.

    Can anyone explain to me just how the hell you are supposed to operate the loading lever on the shiny '49 Pocket in the top right corner of that photo? Or is it just there for decoration?

    These guns are on display at every Utah Gun Collectors show held in Ogden, Ut. They were guns popular with the Mormon Missionarys in the old days. They needed pistols they could carry in their coat pockets. The term Avenging Angle refers to the Danites the secret police and enforcers of Brigham Young Mormon leader.:confused:

    Not Missonaries but the men who acted as security for the First Presidency and who acted as not secret at all law enforcement. Indeed several became US deputy Marshals after Utah was forced to be a territory and the president of the church removed from secular power via Washington appointment of a territorial governor.

    The Danites were disbanded before the Mormans went to Utah, but get brought up repeatedly. No doubt some who had been Danites were still about But as the founder of the group was something of a splinterer the groups was done away with as being contray to doctorine. They made good boogy men for quite some time though for anyone that had anything bad to say about the Mormans.

    Before I hacked my Walker down to 2 1/2" it was about 5 inches or so. Note my stubby loading lever. I had a friend machine a rod that was hollow on one end to slip over the stub for leverage. They probably did something similar with that '49 pocket.

    I really like the looks of that chopped Walker! What did you use for the front sight?
