Hi, since PhotoBucket crapped on us and photos in this thread were lost, I am adding a photo for posterity. These are my two Walkers, the top a Walker kit nitride finished:



The lower Walker is factory with the cylinder nickel plated. Not long ago I added a dovetail sight to my kit Walker so that poi=poa at 25yds using .45 Colt conversion cylinders, that photo:



While Walkers are heavy, they offer a very stable platform for precision shooting. The added sight radius also helps. IMO every serious BP revolver shooter should own a Walker.

Regards,
Richard

I'll go along with that. That nitride finish is a new one on me, I like that. I wonder how a Walker would look if the whole thang was nickel plated. That would be awesome.
