This is NOT an other lazy rip-off of the beautiful Colt Walker from GrabCAD by Steen Winther!
I redesigned the revolver entirely from scratch based on historical patent drawings and handwritten manufacturing instructions specifically with 3D printing in mind.
The original design as well as its remixes are NOT or at best PARTIALLY functional. This is due to some major design errors, missing tolerances & intersecting parts. Trust me, I tried and was massively let down.
My version is guaranteed to work like the real thing straight off the printing bed with minimum post-processing! See teaser video for proof.
The whole thing is 100% 3D printable - no screws, no nuts, no coil springs. Only printed pushpins and leafsprings. You may have to experiment with materials a bit but even most PLA will work fine.
The whole thing comes with printing recommendations and detailed instructions to not leave you out in the cold with a bunch of peculiar plastic parts.
The original Colt Walker weights 4 1⁄2 pounds (2 kg) unloaded, has a 9-inch (230 mm) barrel, and fires a .44 caliber (0.454 in (11.5 mm) diameter) conical and round ball. It was the most powerful repeating handgun for over 100 years, until the .357 Magnum came about. It still resembles the heaviest revolver ever made and only about 1100 units were manufactured in total.
Despite its flaws this working horse of a gun was in use until it practically turned to dust. Very few of them survived to the present day. All of this contibutes to auction prices well beyond 1 Million dollars.
Should you not decide on spending that much of your disposable income or are not permitted to buy an armed replica - I got you covered! Go ahead and start making one yourself!

Please consult the documentation in the download section and the galery for detailed recommendations on print settings for each individual part. Listing all settings here would be far too complex.
The documentation in the thing files contains a detailed and pictured step-by-step assembly guide to help you with putting this thing together.
Feel free to contact me with any remaining questions, but please first consult the manual and see if you can find anything useful! I put a lot of effort into it.
