Take years to get through the system.
Most likely they aren't available from supplier or supply is very slow. C19 issues.
1858 Sheriff and Belt.
Guess the op will clarify.
"my latch that holds the loading level to the barrel pops off after a few shots".

Why didn't you ask them why they considered it non shootable?
Buy the Walker if in good shape. Colts look nice and handle well but of mine I shoot the steel frame 1858 Remington the most. Spare cylinder...
1851 36 cal brass not too bad. I wouldn't in 44 cal. For same price, as long as at low end for used 1851 I would get the Walker because you won't...

Had a revolver do that and I polish chambers with steel wool periodically and it stays smooth.
If you know someone with an 1858 try their cylinder. If the gap closes the previous owner may have used a cylinder from another or older and it is...
Close as I can get.
I would like it but think the neighbors wouldn't.
Why heck yeah. A nail gun, a glue gun, a chalk gun. Firearms is where the conversation gets NYB.
