Interesting Walker on gunbroker
« on: February 24, 2018, 10:38:28 AM »
 I thought this was worthy of sharing. Apparently a copy of the first Civilian Walker #1001 as presented to General Zachary Taylor. Anybody ever seen a Walker like this? Is this a one-of-a-kind defarb? Special issue from ASM or Uberti? Anybody ever seen pictures of the original that this is patterned after?

I think that's a one off custom build.

Does the original exist for them to base it on? I didnít think any factory engraved Walkers were made

It isnít on any list as surviving so a fantasy piece?

I do think it's probably a one off. I seem to remember reading somewhere that there was only one engraved Walker known and it makes sense that it would be a presentation piece but I don't remember the details. Jaxenro, do the lists you refer to mention an engraved Walker?

No it just lists the known surviving Walkers by serial number and 1001 isnít one of them

I doubt 1001 was engraved either

Birmingham Walker is it? Such a deal!  Birmingham wasn't established until 1871.  "Old Rough and Ready" died in 1850.  As ever, Gun Broker is complicit in serious BS.
