This is my 16 1/8" ASM. Personally the kid did good without the buttstock. I would have hit the chrono, maybe he did? I couldn't shoIMG_20200607_135818.jpgIMG_20200913_161908.jpgIMG_20200913_162026.jpgIMG_20200913_162046.jpgot it like that without the butt stock or sticks

I wouldn't hit close to what I would want to with out front end help. Had it gone over by Mike at Goons. Added Slix Shot nipples also. Fun shooter. It is a handfull!

A break top Walker carbine with removable cylinders for rapid reloads would make a compelling calvary arm.

That is a nice (and somewhat scarce with that length of barrel) ASM 3rd Model Dragoon with the 3-leaf barrel-mounted rear sight. I am guessing it was manufactured between 1973/XXIX and 1975/AA.

Envious!

Regards,

Jim

Wow an 18” Walker! Almost sounds like someone is compensating for a very small pistol in their pocket. Lol. Well, I can’t lie, I wish I had one. Yeah, I mean the Walker.

what in a very large scabbard on your back?.... 🤣
That's one option...but I've been talking to a local leathersmith, and he thinks he'd like to try making a belt holster for it...I figure when all said and done, I'd have close to $2000.00 invested with the gun, the barrel swap, and custom holster.

Of course, this all depends on how things pan out this year with the current world situation. This isn't set in stone, just a possible addition to my C&B revolver collection. It would be pretty cool though. :cool:

That sir is totally awesome! I had a Rem. revolving carbine once (it burned). I didn't like the straight grip of the stock. I've had some experience with unmentionable stocked pistols, but the barrels seemed too short to justify the stock. However, for follow-up shots (to me at least) it makes it more steady, but cumbersome.

Forget the holster all you need is a sling! 😄
