1847 Walker

Recommended Posts

Italian made Walker, unfired.  Nice wood box with the original key. In the box are a nipple wrench / screw driver tool, adjustable flask, and bullet mold. Finish on the lid has some lite scratches and wear. Revolver was manufactured in 1964 but I don't know who made it. It says made in italy. On the top of the barrel it has " ADDRESS SAM COLT NEW-YORK CITY" with a small L after the SAM. Very good condition, small scratches on barrel near the loading lever pivot.

Loading lever will not drop far enough for the rammer to enter the cylinder when fired, see pic. Rammer must be lifted slightly for loading.

Matching numbers, screws like new, never been apart. Grips very nice. Bluing is good (looks faded in the pics due to reflection) Brass has slightly tarnished over time.

If you know who made this gun Please let me know. Armi San Marcos?

Not sure what it is worth because I couldn't find another one with this box and makers mark.

$525 shipped

Yes, they are made by ASM. I have one. Typical ASM "quality". Mine burst the cylinder the first time I fired it.

You must not have had a compressed load.

45 grains of pyrodex p with a wad and a bullet seated with my tower of power. There is absolutely no doubt the powder was compressed... WALKERKILLED_zps61c19a11.jpg.69670b3633a766f4c9bf2871160d8875.jpg

It says" OOLI'8 Patent" on the cylinder because it can't legally say Colt's Patent? That's kinda funny.

I thought that was kind of weird myself, every "Colt address Walker" I have ever seen had all the proper Colt markings. I've only ever seen one with the "ooli'8" mark and it was on a replica arms (ASM) but it didn't have any Colt markings. My popped cylinder has "colts patent" on it. The one I bought to replace it just has Colt erased, the Ubertis have "patent 724". Also, I've never seen one cased in a box like that, it's very nice. My guess is someone made it and did a darn good job!

I did find a picture of the an identical box but the owner said the gun had no markings anywhere and Uberti parts did not fit. It looks like a factory box to me.

If you haven't already, look under the loading lever, there might be something stamped under there
