Rob Lewis did the sleeving. The cylinder started as a 45 and was sleeved to
a .36 They are welded in and milled off.

What's up Guys, Can I join? This is my Uberti Kit from DGW that I completed and tested this weekend, I used BC Plum Brown for the finish (It's a little light, But I like the way it turned out).

Very nice, sort of a instant patina. How did she shoot?

It shot very well, thanks! Here is a video of me taking it out... still haven't sorted out the loading lever falling, but I think i'm going to file the catch a bit to mate up with the lever a bit better.

Wow! That's great man! There was a lot of muzzle flash on the 2nd and 5th shots, but I didn't realize that big! Very cool.

All guns sound weird at that range, especially the walker, the sound bounces around the wood, makes that weird reverberation noise.... I really want to shoot it at a more open range to hear the true sound.

Excellent job on the finish, very well done.

Hi everybody.
I managed to sweet talk my wife into letting me buy another firearm.
The traditions kentucky rifle.
It was at the local hardware store and still had the $269.95 price tag on it.
another fix for my black powder addiction.
My walker seems happier now.

Finally got my Walker today

Now I can apply for membership in The Official THR Walker Club. I finally got my Walker today by snail mail(and I mean snail mail). It took a week to come from Colorado to Oregon and the box looked like they had used it for kickball. Fortunately the seller packed it well so no damage to the gun. I looked all over it and can't figure out who made it. It was imported by Jana that is as far as I got. It is a nice enough gun, the grips aren't fitted the best but everything else looks and works good. I am happy with it. Pictures are enclosed.

The roll engraving on the cylinder and the stamping on the left side of the barrel lug are typical ASM. Congrats on the new Walker.

Put me down at #113. We were waiting on the UPS man to deliver it from Blockade Runner. I unboxed it, unwrapped it, and then went to Memphis to catch a plane to New York City so my daughter could perform at Carnegie Hall. I yearned for that pistol all weekend long. I didn't even change shirts when I loaded it up and shot it.



My son was operating the camera, I hope to take some pics at night soon.
