Title: Walch
Post by: JRs12Valve on July 11, 2013, 10:54:33 PM



I got to hold one this week. I do not personally have one (and couldn't afford one  (?^ ) I have only read about them in Louis L'Amour novels.

There's Colt, R&S, LeMat, why no Walch?

Why should there be. They're pretty rare. Only 4,700 made all told and only 200 of those were 12 shot .36 caliber. The rest were 3,000 iron frame .31's and 1,500 brass frame 31's.

There's also no forum for Joslyn, Freeman, Manhattan and a host of other revolvers.

Hmm. I have heard of Manhattan very occasionally, and have never seen one.

I figured this forum had a section for every revolver/make except this one, so I asked hahaha
