Welcome to the Forum from (northern) South Texas!
Sky Cloud Window Door Facade

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.

I can give you a multitude of reasons why yours is not original, but the easiest thing to begin with is the barrel address. The ones with the heavy dash between “NEW” and “YORK” are 100% fakes. Note the dash on the barrel of this 100% authentic Danish Sea Captain Colt Walker:


The photograph of the barrel address is in the first column, third row.

1902 is the serial Italian repo was ruled out by a couple locals
There were only 1,100 Walkers original manufactured. Serial number 1902 shows as a 1st Model Dragoon.
Colt Walkers are some of the most faked Colts around.

Okay 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?

ASM (Italian maker Army San Marco) has made Walker models with a Colt barrel address and got sued for it from Colt. This one looks like one of the ASM with the Colt address. No Italian Maker actually has a Colt address on the barrel.
A lot was already said but think about it, a 175 year old gun without any traces of wear at the cylinder stops. Do you think that this is possible?
