You people are insane...

However...

If you started with a 1st Model Dragoon (replica of course) you could order one with the detachable stock. Then you could cut off the round part of the barrel and modify the back so that a Walker cylinder would fit on the frame. Last, bore the barrel and install a rifled tube of what ever length you wanted.

Steven,

Yes, as a matter of fact I sent that photo to Uberti asking about such modifications to be considered for the future. I doubt that I will hear back from them but at least I went on record of "designing" it and promoting the idea. I was initially just goofing around in photoshop on this photo by extending the barrel and adding the shoulder stock but after I made the final layer edits I realized that it was actually a damn nice looking concept. The Dragoon series did just this but I think a long barreled Walker with the ability of more powerful powder charges, a shoulder stock, and with a military ladder rear sight on the barrel would have been a formidable weapon.

SixShootinSam,

Wow, a deblued 2nd generation Colt Heritage? Are you going to leave it like that or are you going to age the metal up a bit?

Not sure what I will be doing with it. Right after taking the picture it made me feel bad, and polished it up a bit just now. still able to see where the stains were, but she looks good.
Here's her now:

TMC4232-I think it is a great idea.
I would want one. it would have been a strong weapon, and I love the photo.

My Walker from GB came today.....what kind if carriage and wheels do you recommend for totin' this little cannon around with?! It's slick, it's an older 3/4 finished Uberti kit gun, so old, it has the Ormsby engraving on the cylinder, US 1847 above the wedge, only 2 Italian proofmarks and no, "For BP Only", or anything else on the bbl!!! It's all in the white (some case hardening left on the loading lever and hammer). I'm gonna have to antique this puppy plumb brown, maybe leave the cylinder in the white. Here's the "before" pic.

Don't have a Walker, but I DO have a 3rd model Dragoon (ASM replica). The Dragoon is about as heavy of a revolver as I can keep steady on target...briefly... I have bad elbows and a bad shoulder from an old accident, I'm afraid. They tend to get uncomfortable holding something that weighs 4+ pounds at arm's length without some kind of support :P.

Dick, have you tried one of those 'shooting sticks' They are made for uses with a rifle, but I think one could adapt to use it with a revolver.

i have a 10 year old that loves to shoot my guns. He usually puts the front of the barrel on a sandbag and shoots. We have this bag we made out of an old pair of jeans after shooting the walker we noticed it was smoldering in some spots like it was going to catch fire. so now we wet the front of the bags.

I agree, that would be a great gun.
I wish I knew someont that could make a front end, like that for the walker, I could figure out the rest.
It would seem that uberti would only have to make a longer barrel and cut the slots for the stock and that would be it.
I would buy one in a heart beat.
It just looks beautiful.
You did an excilent job on the picture

Well, It took about 6hrs of work over the weekend, but she's finally purdy enough to show off!
I left the cylinder in white, now I have Sundance's problem, how do you age bright metal? Also, I'm gonna try to get the brass mustard colored somehow and varnish the grips. All that sanding and I don't think she's a bit lighter to carry!!

Muriatic Acid that is used to wash down masonry should work for aging metal.
But it's nasty stuff so wear gloves and eye protection. and don't breathe in the fumes.

But I have never done it on a gun, so don't take my word for it!!!

Spray the brass with some oven cleaner, it works great for that aged patenia look, leaves a rainbow effect, like color case hardening. I just did this brasser today, the camera does not pick up the rainbow color.

Steve,
Thanks for the photo comment. I have not heard back from Uberti yet. Maybe if a bunch of us email/contact them they will respond with an "ok, we will consider it" or "no, too expensive and not enough demand", or at least some response. The more I look at the shoulder stocked long barreled Walker I made, the more I want one too. It would be a powerfully accurate shooter and quite a unique collectible - something that never was but should have been.
