The Whitneyville Walker 1847 features are; round blued barrel, six shot cylinder with oval bolt cuts, color case hardened frame, loading lever, plunger & hammer a square brass trigger guard, blued steel backstrap, one piece oiled walnut grips and roll engraved 6 shot cylinder. This big, powerful .44 caliber black powder revolver was developed with the help of Captain Samuel Walker of the United States Mounted Rifles. It weights a mighty 4 pounds, 8 ounces, has an overall length of 15-3/4 inches, with a 9-inch precision rifled barrel. This is a six-shot revolver with handsomely engraved cylinder and barrel marked "U.S. 1847." The Mexican War was the reason which led again to arms manufacture by Colt. Urged by a Government request for one thousand pieces and following Captain Samuel Walker's advice, Colt patented this weapon, the biggest handgun ever made. The gun was then bound to arm some of the Texas Rangers who engaged in the Mexican War. Lt. Col. George A. Caldwell later said, "Two years' experience in Mexico enables me to speak with confidence of the value of Colt's revolvers. Those who had them there could not by induced to part with them at any price.
