Colt 1847 Walker .44 caliber (C10406)
Colt 1847 Walker .44 caliber revolver. Made in 1847 with a 6⅝” barrel that was shortened from the original 9”. Gun is nice and sharp with a smooth brown patina on metal. The barrel and cylinder are number B Company 103 and the frame, trigger guard, and back strap are numbered to D Company 96. These are sometimes referred to as “Campfire” Walkers since these guns were mostly likely mismatched while soldiers were cleaning their guns around a campfire. The latch was replaced probably at the time of the barrel being shortened. It is original to the period of use. Grips are all original. Gun works perfectly. A very neat piece and fresh to the market. We recently purchased this gun from a California family.
