1902 is the serial Italian repo was ruled out by a couple localsWelcome to the Forum from (northern) South Texas!

The experts will be along shortly...but the odds are that is an aged Italian repro that is missing the wedge screw.
Pictures of the serial number(s) and any/all other markings would be good.
There were only 1,100 Walkers original manufactured. Serial number 1902 shows as a 1st Model Dragoon.
Bingo!The barrel retaining wedge is in backwards. The revolver is in excellent condition and that leads me to believe it is an Italian replica.
and these locals have what knowledge and financial interest? What kind of money are we talking about here? Greed tends to distort peoples vision. First glance at the condition rules out genuine.
You could buy a nice Uberti replica for around $400 USD. Cased Walker for sale@Teddy767, I hope that you didn't put to much money in it, this is obviously a fake. Here in Germany this Walker would bring somewhere around 300.00 €. No idea what is a realistic value in US.
Was found inside a wall in a home from 1744 and was there since god knows how long
Thank you very very much !Welcome to the forum, it is a beautiful piece regardless.
Would love some other pics to compare it to as well and zero it was freeOkay here’s a few more differences:
curvature of grip interface at backstrap, frame, and trigger guard differs from original.
Location of wedge not in exactly same location as original.
Cylinder stop differs from original.
Curvature of arc of loading lever and profile of loading lever differs from original.
Loading lever cutout profile differs from original.
Angulation and chamfer of rear part of barrel assembly forward of frame differs from original.
If scene on cylinder was distinct, I’m sure I could point out many ways in which it differs from the cylinder scene of the Danish Sea Captain Colt Walker.
Is further proof necessary?
How much do you have invested in your revolver?
