    I couldn't help it, ordered the new 1847 Walker

    62484611_2187646044638569_7406494321098096640_n.jpgI rarely ever shoot Cap and Ball anymore and my 40+ year old 1851 Navy just sits in my safe. But yesterday I got a sales email from Cimarron offering a Texas Ranger edition 1847 Walker with all the stampings and markings the originals came with. I caved in and ordered one for the sale price of $700.83 without the presentation box (another $300+) and will get it soon. I should have gotten another Winchester...but I decided I needed this one.

    Be sure to get a good horse and saddle holster that can carry it for you whenever you want to use it. It wasn't referred to as a "horse pistol" without reason.

    Going to make a holster for it, since they were carried across the saddles first, this is going to be fun. No one even thought about gun belts until this one came along since everyone just stuck the single shot pistols in the waist belts. There were no sixguns or fancy holsters commonly used during the 1830's-40's or early 50's in all likelihood. So Cimarron asked me to send the photos of a completed Texas Holster when I get it done. This is going to be a hoot. I will even carry it a time or two. I typically get many requests for photos from tourists or locals from around the world who stop by at the Starbucks.

    I have seen the ads and gotten an email or two but have resisted temptation...so far.
    If someone would buy that New Frontier in the WTS section...I might make a run to Texas Jack's

    Cimmaron says they will be marked "as exact as possible" like the originals, but specifically mention only the company/serial numbers. Does anyone know if these have the Colt barrel address and Colt's Patent cylinder markings?

    Some might say other wise, but shoot a full load of the holy black in that hand canon (and not have it chain fire ) and you'll know nothing as stumpy as a Walker until the 44 Mag showed up.

    I've gone through a typical urban Day CCW-ing mine 'Mexican' style...

    Long as I had it pointing somewhat to the side, was easy to sit, drive, tie a Shoe, stand in line at the Grocery Store, whatever...did not try running any 50 yard dashes though...Lol...

    And I am not a big guy, 5' 11", 145 soaking wet...

    Never felt uncomfortable one bit...

    Back in the day (early 80's) I had a Uberti 1847 Walker and loaded 60grs of 3F all the time. I used to shoot it through vehicles and appliances to marvel about it's power and penetration. It was very powerful for a BP revolver. I hope to have as much fun again using conical bullets.
