Colt Walker Information!

I have come into possesion of a Colt Walker. Serial number 1052. I have had a couple of Colt novice collectors evaluate the gun for authenticity. Both can't prove either way if it is fake or authentic. One collector is of the opinion the grips especially are too new for the rest of the gun. Can anyone out there give me any guidance on my next step to value/authenticate this gun? I can provide photos electronically. Thanks, Kyle.

Hi Hope...
The 1000 military Walker Colts were all numbered by Company. There were 100 original authentic civilian Walker Pistols numbered 1001 to 1100 produced by Colt/Whitney that helped Colt get started back in the Firearms business... There are people who have produced copies of the Walkers both military and civilian and there are probably more fakes than originals floating around out there. I had one close to your 1052 that was a fake that was produced in the 60s... It was quite good! And the Good fakes bring in the low four figures in the collectors market. There were several good articles in the Colt Collector's Association magazine over the years and Col Robert Whittington III has written a good book on them that can be found on the web. Post some close up photos of the serial numbers on the gun and the other markings found on the gun and I can probably give you a good idea if is a Fake or not... and where to go to find out more if I can't tell you...
