    It's like a good English Bulldog, ugly as hell but lovable and I wish I had one. Well done and I hope you can provide us with a range report.

    I shot it yesterday in the late afternoon/early evening. My friend filmed it on his phone so I will try to upload it onto youtube to share. It was quite an experience!

    I've got a Stainless ROA that has some very noticeable pitting on the last 1/2 inch of the barrel from the previous owner leaving it in a wet holster. I've been planning to cut her down to 5.5" but maybe I should go shorter. Hmmmm... what to do?

    is the pitting on the inside or outside of the barrel?

    Nice pics!

    The perspective on the cocked pic makes the hammer look ungodly larger than the pistol itself!

    A real beauty!

    If I recall correctly only on the outside. Why, do you have a better idea for her than shortening her up?

    Awesome! I could never do that to my beautiful new Walker, but I have a slightly rough old used Pietta 1851 Navy that I bought for $100......

    not really Malachi, it's just that if the interior of the barrel was good, like Rondog, I'd have a hard time doing it, and if the barrel were pitted, with a damaged crown, why, that would be a little easier [for me, YMMV] to cut down...

    You should turn it into one of these then. I made this out of a Pietta:

    Makes me yearn for my Remy Gunslingers to make a reappearance.....or maybe just do this to some Colt repro's too.
    So many ideas, so little time and less money.
    If I did that to a Walker I could be "Hand Cannon Harper" and I here by reserve that name. LOL!

    Being somewhat C&B "challenged", I gotta ask - how do you load these sawed-off pistols with the loading levers removed?

    rondog,

    I was actually a little unprepared when I went to my friends house to fire the Walker. He's got like 7 Dragoons so he had everything else needed to load and fire it. I ended up using a long brass screw and tapped the ball in with a hammer. I'm probably going to make something out of one of the old Walker loading levers I have kicking around.

    I think a cylinder loading stand would be just the ticket for that:
