Scrat I would tell you i went shooting today out in the woods in front of the house here. But since I don't have a Walker and am not in this club I won't make a post about it. But if I did I would mention I shot for about an hour and a half, not many BP rounds, only 35. I get pleasure from the entire process not just from pounding lead downrange. So I tend to take my time and enjoy being out in the woods.

But I was shooting the '51 Navy Mac got running for me. And I would also tell you all what fine job he did on that old pistol.

Maybe someday I will get a Walker so I can join up and tell you about shooting today.

Sorry, sometimes I crack myself up.

ok first pic is from the walker. shoots pretty accurate. this is i think my 3rd target.



This picture is from my 1851 and 1860. Both of those things seem to always shoot high. Im thinking of filing down the notch in the hammer.
The lower shots to the right are when i started aiming way lower. almost to the bottom of the paper.

all were shot at around 20 yards. the Walker had 55 grains Goex. the 1860 and 1851 had 25 grains Goex. All shots were done while standing. Two hands on the walker and one handed on the others.

Oh the target itself is just an 8 1/2 X 11 piece of paper. After using up the range targets i had to use my back ups. The stapler and my printed targets. One tip if you ever plan on printing targets use a laser jet printer they come out very good and are a lot cheaper than any ink jet printer.

Good morning, members!
I know ya'll probably get tired of all my bitching and complaining. Well, I'm an old man and set in my ways!
I'm happy this morning though. THR's picture machine is working again.
Ya'll have sure got some pretty photographs on this thread. I'm serious. I have spent a lot of time the past few days just going back and forth on the thread looking at them.
I can't take good pictures like that. I don't know how, plus right now I don't have the room to work in.

From the previous thumbnail it looked like the grips were squared off where they meet the frame.

Thought you might be trying to sneak in a Dragoon on the Walker thread!

Hmmm, why don't we have a Dragoon thread?

Thank You Shawnee I got it from the Possible shop for $165 its a Navy in .44 cal I know its not authentic but hey im not a reenactor so . When I got it it was all blued But i de blued it and hand polished it and thats what I came up with. It lives with my black gambler rig.
I think that Colts look so much better in the white.And its wierd but i think Remmies look awsome in the black go figure.
G of the C thank you Sir. I am gonna let them know you said so.
Now I have the Remmie with the 8 inch barrel so I need to make a new rig but I havent had a vision yet. Might need to watch a few old movies and come up with an idea.

I guess I'd like to join this club, too. Here are a few of my babies:


The Walker, Dragoon and 1860 Army are all Signature Series Colts; the 1873 SAA is a Uberti blackpowder frame "Custer" model from Cimmeron. This display covers nearly all of the single-action blackpowder revolvers Colt developed expressly for the Army during the 1800s.

J.T. Gerrtity.. WELCOME ABOARD!! Changed my post a little here. I had a couple of drinks and piled it on too thick!! Just feel pretty good about this thread. I wished everybody in the world that wanted one owned a .44 Colt Walker. I'm sure you're a good man, J.T... Those are some fine looking revolvers....
DAMN!! We're getting a lot of people in this club....

Hi BBG...

Looking at your "kids" I'm inclined to agree with you about the Colts looking better "in the white". So what's the scoop on "de-bluing" them and how are they protected ?

And surely you made or bought those grips - right ?

Nope those grips came with that pistol.
Um deblued useing plain old household vinegar and polished by hand useing M.A.A.S. it polishes and protects and keep in mind I live in south florida where it is humid all the time. And I get no rust on either the '51 or the Walker.

Hi BBG...

Ok - I have to plead ignorance.

What is M.A.A.S. ?


Wow! Those are the nicest-looking OTC grips I've seen on a repro !!
