    Bogus ‘Haas Walker’ on GB

    Just a heads up to black powder aficionados, but beware of GB item #854465254, Colt Walker s/n ‘A Company No. 21’. It’s purported to be one of the 15 or so Walkers made in the Haas/Acevedo shop in the 1960’s, but as a former owner of a genuine example of one (among others), I can assure you it’s a spurious piece. What is being auctioned is either a late 2nd or 3rd generation Colt, or an Italian reproduction, which has been marked as originals and fake aged. Bidding is already up north of $1500 (itself a red flag, as genuine Thomas Haas Walkers routinely trade for $5-$10k). Hopefully no forum members will bid on this one.

    You might consider sending the seller a note via GB. Just to inquire further... you might say.

    There is a chance the pistol was represented to the seller as advertised and they donít know any better?
    Could be on consignment with info provided. A message to the seller explaining the concerns might help.
    The response he receive will tell all. Itíll either be a defense of the goods or an apology. I have experienced both for other types of firearms.

    I believe I’ll do just that; the seller is a dealer and may be going on information provided.

    FWIW, what purports to be Colt Walker A Company No.21, minus the Haas attribution. is online. See https://history.army.mil/armyhistory/AH102(W).pdf Army History, pp 22-23.

    I am no expert on Hass Walker's. I do have 3 of the Colt marked Armi San Marco Walker's that were made in around 1980 or so. I think it's probably one of those that's been aged and had markings added. Or it could be a Colt 2nd Gen but the 2nd Gens usually have fatter grips.

    Of note, the nipples are beat down and well woren, however, the cylinder notches show little use.
