Thanks Paul. To give you an idea of what a beast the Walker is here's the specs;
The Colt Walker holds a powder charge of 60 grains (3.9 g) in each chamber, more than twice what a typical black powder revolver holds. It weighs 4½ pounds (2 kg) unloaded, has a 9-inch (229 mm) barrel, is 15.5 inches long and fires a .44 caliber (0.454 in, 11.53 mm diameter) conical and round ball.
If I miss with my Encore I can shoot the deer with this. Or if I wanna save a bullet I can just hit a deer over the head with it!
I read that back in the day they could ride up alongside a buffalo, shoot it, and the bullet would go clean through the buffalo! They usualy carried two Walkers in saddle holsters on their horses. A new barrel for my Encore and now this? I feel like Christmas came early.
