My "new" Walker
« on: June 24, 2020, 12:12:11 PM »
Just picked this up at a local auction. The roman numeral dates this 1962. Colt on top of barrel, but no ASM identity anywhere...just the Italian proof marks - also located under the barrel. no "Made in Italy" on gun.

That's a heck of a find Mantruck!

I do believe though, that XVIII is actually 1972 vintage. I have a Dragoon with the same date code.

Thanks for the update on the date code. Of course I got my info off the interweb!

Anytime! That's what we're here for, to help each other.

That really is a good looking Walker. Can't wait to hear how you like shooting it.

it is going to go for a treatment by Goons Gun works. Mike Bracket does wonders with these platforms.

It look's to be a '62.  XXVIII is '72.
