The Walker is an older Uberti I think, no bbl address nor frame markings that I can find. The 1851 Squareback Navy is a 2nd Gen Colt that I picked up for a song, this because the previous owner had 'aged' the pistol. Both the Walker and the Navy have bery nice actions and timing.

edit: there is a PN on the right side of the bbl/ wedge area, upper left hand corner.

I got both gun and vintage and custom made LD Meyers holster as a set at Gunbroker, one of the best deals I've ever come across. Notice the carving of the dove on the front.. a 'lonesome dove'..

Man I love that dove holster. I'm gonna have to copy that for my next Dragoon holster.
