Oddman,

I would think that was an Armi San Marco just by the ASM. mykeal might be able to give you additional info since he has one.

The date stamp on my ASM is on the bottom of the frame in front of the trigger guard, just forward of the serial number, next to the two proof marks.

There are no records available to allow dating by serial number.

Thanks guys, after a closer look, i found a little star with P.N. also i think very hard to read the letters B I. (according to the provided link it could be a 1997 model) Thank again.

Todays WALKER shooting



i have to remember to stop aiming on target and aim lower. all were done at 20 yards



Would have stayed longer. I wanted to put up another target but she kept jaming up on me. Then was not setting off any of the caps. Had to come home with three cylinders full of powder and balls. Once i got home i completely took her apart. there were about 4 pieces of old caps in the works. Now she is already for next week. I think i must have had to much oil on the works to around the cylinder that made the caps jam up in the inside. I wish they made caps that would not fall apart on you when you pulled the trigger wouldnt that be great. Im thinking about ordering some new nipples to get a better fit. so question i have for you guys whats a good brand of nipples for a Uberti WALKER

Treso 11-50-136 1/4x28. A few people here ( Phantom Captain and Mykeal ) recommended them. Perfect fit in the Uberti Dragoons and Walker. Caps fit perfectly, not too tight, not too loose, just perfect. They're definitely a high quality product.

Would like to join your Walker Club

As you may know I had a Walker for a short time this month but had to return it because of frame damage.I can tell from experience don't try 60 grains of Pyrodex pellets. Ken at the gun shop refunded my money and for $300 more I came home with a Colt 1st Dragoon that colt produced about 25 years ago. It was unfired until last nite and almost as much fun as the Walker. I would like to join your club and if it takes getting a Walker again I will do that but it might take awhile. I shot 35 grains with cornmeal for filler in the Dragoon and it is just right. Maybe not its max but its fine for me after my last dumb bad experience. You have a great website that I can sit all day and read. Thanks again

Just found the manufacture mark on my Walker and its an Uberti the man mark is hidden behind the loading lever retaining clip. I never looked there lol. And it was born in 1993 (BC). Learn something new every damn day.

Elbert P. Suggins, WELCOME ABOARD SIR!!
Sorry about your Walker deal.
Would you happen to have any photographs of it blowing up in your hand when you fired it? That would be so..well, how do the lice infected dope smoking hippies say it? Yes!! I'vd got it! That would be so cool man, just far out.
The 1st Model Dragoon is a fine piece in it's own right. I'vd got one tucked away. Haven't fired it yet. May never.
Be sure and get with the Treasurer Mr. MyKeal about the rules and regulations concerning membership dues and what have you. Do you have any collateral in case you fall behind or whatever? It dosen't really have to be money although money is alway's nice. We can almost alway's accept your first borned or perhaps a pick up truck if it run's good. I understand Mr. MyKeal has a barn full of stuff like microwave's, tv's and computers and what not he has accepted in lieu of cash money concerning the dues and little fines here and there. I know he keep's one man's trigger finger in a small jar of famaldehyde sitting on his mantel piece. It make's for good conversation now and then. But we'll treat you right on this thread, sir. You have nothing to worry about.
Move your Dragoon load up to around 42 grains give or take a little, and get rid of the cornmeal muffins and the breakfast cereal. They belong on your dinner table, not in your gun barrel....
WELCOME ABOARD!!..

My second Walker arrived yesterday, now to clean it up and practice my two gun shooting (hay if it good enough for Jose Wales........) Took a while to get it, the first one was lost by UPS (someone at UPS may have a new Walker) then wait for UPS to trace it, no luck, then ship annother one. I guess UPS made a mistake and delivered the second one on time and in perfect condition. I'm thinking that wearing two of these artillery pieces should keep me anchored even it our Wyoming winds.

I took delivery yesterday of another Walker. It looked like it was "in the white" in the auction photos. Its stainless. Barrel and cylinder are stainless. It has a broken latch retainer spring. I didnt know they made stainless Walkers.

I ordered the spring and lever today. Ill have to find a way to post when I get it fixed. I couldnt believe my eyes when I saw my new toy was stainless. I went and got it verified. Its really nice looking. I just wish ASM had put on begter grips or better fitting grips. Im thinking about a pair of stag horn for it.

Y'know, these "club" threads get monotonous after a while...

Anybody got something different? An engraved Walker, maybe? How 'bout a nickeled one?

Or even one done up in pink titanium oxide...
