    That is a beauty Phil. I've always loved to lines of the Remington. Bought a cheap Spanish copy out of Cabela 's many years ago and had a blast shooting it when I was younger. Dang thing would gum up after one or two cylinders however.

    The one I really wanted was the Colt Walker. The largest BP pistol made. But those are really up there$$$$$$. So In the early 80's I bought an Italian copy(Uberti?). That bad boy hold 60 grains and shoots a .454 ball. They say it's equivalent to the .357! I just top off the cylinder with BP (About 70 grains)and blow the excess off and cram a ball down there. That SOB is a true fire breathing dragon and will blow a 15' flame out the pipe. Very impressive at night time

    Ha! Was talking to Mart about the Walker the other day. They are Beasts. Do you put on the poncho and pretend your Jose Wales??? LOL

    Would love to shoot one eventually. Given the size would assume the kick isn't too bad

    No poncho Michael, but I do chew on a cigar and spit on dogs!!!!LOL
    The Walker weighs 4.5 pound so yea even when I pack that badboy to the rim with BP, It still has a relatively mild recoil.

    If ever your worldly travels bring you to the Deserts of Yuma, It would be my pleasure to make that happen. I promise no visits to the mine shafts.Well maybe one but that is the name of one of our local bars

    The Walker also suffers from the same experience you had shooting your BP pistol. 2-3 cylinders and I have to break it down and lube it up.
