Uberti Walker kit?
« on: January 26, 2016, 09:14:22 AM »
Hi, has anyone here purchased and completed the Uberti Walker kit? See:

https://www.dixiegunworks.com/product_info.php?products_id=2033&osCsid=vqc862p2jlhse1e0pbksglm4g7

I have been thinking of getting this kit Walker for a cold weather project. I would like to finish it in nickel plate.

If you did build this Uberti Walker kit, how easy was complete the revolver?

Regards,
Richard

No on the Walker, but I did an 1860 Army kit. It took maybe 6 months working on it now & then but it was worth the end result. Probably had three times what it was worth into it if you counted my labor, but it was 'tuition' for me.

Hi Richard,   I could only watch the first 3 minutes of the videos before I had to shut that guy up.   Guess I'll never know how to build a Walker from a kit.

I tried building a CVA Colonial pistol from a kit and it was way beyond my skill level. No way would I attempt a Walker or anything else.
