Review:

I could NOT be happier with my Walker replica!
It arrived just days after ordering.
There was just the right amount of clean-up to do on the steel parts, some minor tool marks, light filing and polishing required (no machinist skills necessary).
The brass trigger guard was rough cast, requiring a lot more work, but a Dremmel makes that easy enough.
I wanted mine to look 170 yrs old, so I smacked it around a bit and spent a lot of time bluing and then UN-bluing it, but I'm thrilled with the look of it.
BUT shooting the Walker is the BEST part!
It shot flawlessly from the first shot! True to design the face of the frame is not relieved for expanded caps, so a mushroomed primer can sometimes lock-up the action, but that's part of the joy with such a toy. The loading lever has not even once fallen under 50gr loads, contrary to previous experiences with Walker's model, and with history.
So far I've only shot from about 7 yds, but it was spot on, maybe a smidge high. I'm anxious to see how she shoots out to 50 and 100 yds.
All I had on hand were soft lead round balls, 4.52 dia. These tend to leave a lot of lead shavings in the barrel and I should think .454 would shoot better.
If you are on the fence about this purchase, DIVE IN, enjoy the build, then enjoy years of plinking pleasure!
