Good Morning Shawnee
M.A.A.S. is a metal polish really good stuff for steel. I found it by accident at Walgreens while looking for brasso.

Hi Snaggletooth...

It was just a link error. Mukluk posted the correct link for you in his post above, It works fine.

Hmmm, why don't we have a Dragoon thread?
The Dragoon was designed for women to shoot. The Walker was to big for the womenfolk of the time, so they designed the Dragoons. If you want to start a "Womanish men who like dragoons" club, then by all means, go ahead.

I thought Kim Darby and Josey Wales both used Walkers?

Evening Scrat. Yeah, I have tried several times over the last couple of hours or so. I'll hang with it a little while longer. I may get a couple posted.
Yeah the forum was freezing up so badly a couple of hours ago I almost shut it down....
My computer I mean....

You might as well add me to the list. I sent in my membership and my Walker is on it's way from Taylors. Should be here Friday and I'll post some pictures then.
Hopefully Taylors comes through with my request, I told them I'd prefer if they could pick one that doesn't have a straight grain grip, I like some figure or uniqueness to it. They said no problem since they had a bunch to choose from they'd pick one out for me.
$385 after shipping! These are going up and up! My friends Walker was $295 from Blockade runner 2 years ago and most prices then were right around $300! Get a Walker while you can!
Any recommended loads? I use 40 grains in my Uberti Dragoon, I might start there with the Walker. .457 balls and #10 remington caps should work fine since they do on the Dragoon.

Bigbadgun fire's 50 or 55 grains, I forgot which.
I fire 48 grains in rough country. Triple Seven (3fff).
My normal working load ranges from around 38 to 42 grains. Triple Seven (3fff).
Remington #10's may be a little tight.
The Uberti .44 Walker call's for #11's....
I just checked my First Model Dragoon's (still stripped down) manual and also called DGW and they call for #11's on the Dragoons also. I guess you do what you want to. It's your gun and you paid for it....

JCT Congrats on getting a Walker. I use .454 balls and #10 caps. Let me know how the .457 work, I may have to try them. 40 grains of Goex is what I started with also. Best of luck with the "holy Black". RugerBob
