hello, mr. whiplash; could be a second contract dragoon mistaken for 1847 model, biggest difference is cylinder.While not out of the question...the odds of it being a true Colt Walker are mighty slim. Counterfeits have been presented as genuine for many decades...probably more of them that originals. I understand counterfeits can be traced back to the 1920s so it's not a new phenomena.
Photos are necessary as there are member here who are very good at telling the differences between genuine and imitation.
Still...there's always the chance it could be real.
