The rare Colt Walker Model 1847 is a 6-shot, single-action revolver weighing in at 4-1/2 lb & measuring a 1-1/2' in length. It was the weighty brainchild of Samuel Colt & Samuel Walker. Walker met with Colt in the 1840s to propose improvements to the Colt Paterson revolver...the result was the Colt Walker. Fewer than 10% of the 1,100 are known to exist today. Due to their rarity, these guns are the Holy Grail of Colt revolver collecting.

This is how my old great grandpa hunted Sasquatch, back when he was just a boy in wilds of Wisconsin. Black powder is the only way. While we would normally suggest one of the new in-line muzzleloaders for whitetail, one shot may not be enough. Here, we’re going with the Sasquatch of black powder pistols, the Colt Walker. The Walker is capable of delivering six rounds of .457—147 grains each, reasonably fast.
