I saw on another board that supposedly S&W made some revolvers for Walther. They were supposed to be based on a Smith model 19, and dubbed the Walther R99. Anyone have any info as to accuracy of this?

Thanks for the info & links guys.

That's a nice wheel gun. Sure would like to run across one(or two).

Jake, what language is the http://www.oragie.net/shotr_walther.htm web site? Any idea how much the 1450something something is in USD?
The language is Bulgarian. лв means BGN, the Bulgarian Leva.

1 Bulgarian lev = 0.706814 U.S. dollars

That's $1,024 US.

The R99 is real and I have seen one at a show. Whats cool is it has Walther proof marks on it and the grip is sweet. Earl did have a couple for sure because I saw it on his site years back. It would be a unicorn to own as I believe only a couple of hundred were made!!!

Am I correct that if you formerly had a photobucket account and you didn't pay the extortion money, you can never view anyone else's photobucket pictures online?
There is a Chrome extension that usually works to show old Photobucket images. For example, the R99 photos in this thread are showing up for me with that extension installed.


I believe that early in the Umarex-S&W Strategic Alliance, these rebranded S&Ws were marketed as the "Big Bore" model. I don't think anyone in Arnsberg saw the irony.

Manfred Kersten's Walther books show a 1911 in 45acp as the "Big Bore" concept gun.
