Wikicollecting's guide to the rare 1847 Colt Whitneyville-Walker pistol. Designed and created in 1847 as a collaboration between Samuel Colt and a Texas Ranger named Captain Samuel Walker. Only 1100 of these pistols were ever produced and the Walker was the “most powerful handgun in the world" … until the arrival of "Dirty Harry's" .44 Magnum in about 1954.
