Last westernweekend at Horst a friend gave me this old replica made by Uberti of a Colt Walker model 1847. I do like it for sure. I did shoot it with 45 grains of blackpowder. A normal .44 reolver uses just 28 grain. You can use more, but I do not like that. The shooting with this heafty cannon is more like a workout that a shooting match. Just cleaned in and out. Suprised where the blackpowderfouling is to be found. Now it is in my collection. I am happy with it. Just for to compair a Pietta made Le Matt.
