Project Description

!!!!!PRICE REDUCED!!!!!  This is a 1/3 scale 1847 Colt Walker Dragoon revolver made by Fred Thacker of El Paso, Texas back in the 1950’s to 1960’s. This is often called the 6″ Walker by Thacker & Weston collectors.  5 7/8” long overall with a 3 3/8″ part round part octagon barrel of about .18 caliber. The piece is fully functional, and would fire given the proper percussion caps, powder, and lead bullets, but is sold strictly as a collectors piece.  As is typical of the Thacker miniature Colts, there are no markings.  Checkered hammer spur, the hammer has both half and full cock. The cylinder with the typical round cylinder stop notches without approaches. The piece is made of steel, which has been beautifully rust blued, except for the triggerguard and blade front sight which are yellow brass. The grips are one piece Rosewood. The piece is 100% mechanically, and still shows 99+ % of the original rust blue finish. The brass is a very dark beautifully aged patina and shows no signs of ever having been cleaned. Some might argue that this piece was actually made by Tom Weston in Mexico City, Mexico, a valid argument, as both Weston and Thacker used some of the same craftsmen, but the Weston Colts are typically marked where the Thacker Colts are not.  Includes the original Thacker mahogany hinged top case with push button latch and the original brass powder flask with ball compartment.  Stock # ES-42.  Price Reduced:  $1,350.00.
