In 1846, the fledgling state of Texas prepared to do battle once again with Mexico. Ranger Captain Sam Walker was sent back east by General Zachary Taylor (old rough 'n ready) to meet with Sam Colt concerning the manufacture of 1000 special holster pistols for use by the Rangers. At this time Colt was bankrupt and his factory had been sold at a Sheriff's sale for $7000.00. Colt commissioned Eli Whitney's manufacturing company to make the new revolver and the Walker Dragoon was born. Case hardened with brass triggerguard and backstrap. One piece walnut grip.
