The Walker with the R&D cylinder is pretty fun to shoot. For sure. i have had pretty good accuracy with the one i have. Timing was right on the money right out of the box. i took it to my local gunsmith with both cylinders he checked the timing with both of them. He just gave them back to me after checking them and said keep it the way they are. Now for my 1858 i have a Kirsk cylinder. That cylinder needed some fine tuning to get it to work just right.

You can go cap and ball with the kirsk as well you just have to modify they cylinder not the gun. This is what i did with my 1858. However i did the modification on the frame for the loading gate. The WALKER is the only firearm that uses a R&D cylinder correctly. As the shells are loaded in straight and align straight with the barrel on each cylinder. On lets say the 1858 the R&D cylinder (NOT A GOOD CHOICE) Angles the shells to allow 6 shells to fit in. This means that when you fire a around the bullet is forced to go straight through the forcing cone as the shell is at an angle. Kirsk did not opt for this they have the shells going straight into the barrel however this means that a kirsk cylinder in an 1858 is only a 5 shot. So the walker and R&D are a very good match as the shells go straight in line with the barrel. You can still get a kirsk for you walker and put it in and shoot it as well. However i doubt the timing or cylinder length will be correct. I had to shave off about 7 thousands of an inch from the fron of my cylinder just to make it fit into the frame of my 1858 . Then i had to machine down the feet on the back loading gate to get the alignment correct. Then spent another 2 hours getting the timing correct on each cylinder. While you cant beat that drop in cylinder from R&D. Bad news is i hear they are going out of business.

I believe that is why when Remington did the conversion they went to a five shot cylinder. In 46 Remington Rimfire.

It's never good to hear one of our suppliers going out of business. Hopefully he is just getting out of the cylinder business and will continue smithing.

Anyone looking for an R&D cylinder for thier guns better start check out the sites. midwasy still may have some i am sure once the supply runs low all its going to do is drive up the prices of the Kirsk.

150.22 miles from the intersection of Ford and Biddle at a heading of 350 degrees true. Or 190 miles north on I-75/US-23. National City, in the Huron National Forest/Au Sable State Forest. Culturally, about as far as you can get in MI; a lot closer to a yooper than a flatlander.

Well the proper powder is FFF so hate to say it i would go with the GRAFF and son. Or look for GOEX should be easily found in AZ. a few years ago i had problems locating GOEX in my area. So i got on the GOEX website and emailed them. Told them i need to know who stocks it in my area. They replied a day later with a list of places i could get it from.

Your lucky if you can buy BP in your area, nobody inSan Diego county sells BP, a few do sell the substitutes but no real stuff.
