There is a reason the Dragoons are referred to as Improved Walkers.  Because they are an improvement over the original.

I have both and the Dragoons get to the range a lot more than the Walker but the 1860s go to the range more than the other two models combined.  The spring on the Walker can be fitted to the lever so it does not drop when fired. 

My Walkers do not drop the levers.

get the walker, you wont regret NOT doing it later... and never sell it, that you WILL regret... trust me...

Nice looking revolver Bruce, What is the barel length?  Mine is 5".

I have to disagree with you.  Based on the number of used Walkers I see on the market, lots of folks buy one because they have to have one and sell it with a year because it is a lot more than they imagined.

Besides, if they don't sell it how am I gong to keep buying them cheap?

in my experiance, people but the walker, shoot it a few times, sell it cheap, then miss it and buy another... well thats what i did anyway..

bought my first one for $265, sold it for $340, bought this one for $240, blew the cylinder, bought new cylinder, $20, spare barrel, $40, and conversion cylinder, $244...

I can't imagine selling my Walker.

i paid more for my first one and frankly i was a worn out piece of junk. i worked on her and got her running right again but i wanted something better, my current one i absolutly love! its an ASM build from uberti parts with the colt address on the barrel and shoots amazingly well and as accurate as my .22 rifle!
