    A couple of sites with exploded diagrams of Walker Pistols.

    Look at the part relationship and assemble.

    I found U Tube videos for disassembling a 3rd Model Dragoon

    The one Walker cylinder hand fitting video, the creator filmed it in the dark and the pistol is out of camera view.

    Search youtube, maybe you will find better.

    It shouldn't be that hard if you took it apart.

    Just about all Colt single-actions are pretty much the same.

    All kinds of instructions on the net for Colt SAA's if you foregot how it came apart.

    A Walker ain't that much different.

    i have to clean my walker repro, perhaps tonight... i will try to take step by step pics for you if i remember :p i make no promises on image quality as my only camera is my cell phone, but i will try my best to take decent shots. i have done a fair amount of learn by doing with colt repros but i have also utilized the vast wealth of info on the internet, a lot of which is found here for the subject of black powder stuff, and have had to find videos and images in the past to overcome problems in dissassembly/reassembly.

    If you have it all apart you will need to pad a vise grip to hold the mainspring down while reassembling. That is all I can remember. I took ONE of my Walkers apart and never again. I just remember having to get the vise grips to get it back together as it has a weird mainspring unlike every other Colt I have ever played with and stripped down. It was a bugger.

    well i've got mine stripped down and cleaned for the most part but the damn screw holding the trigger/bolt spring doesnt feel like coming out. i don't have a screwdriver worthy of muscling it out without damaging the screwhead. i have some oil on it, hopefully i can get it out of there :( in the mean time, heress a link to a schematic of the good ol' 1847!

    One of the handiest gadgets ever invented for a Walker main spring, or any main spring for that matter is a "zip tie".
