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?

Yes, they did make them. Someone posted a pic here before - apparently, there are none in America. If they did sell them here, I'd buy 1

Ship: Thanks for the info. I tried to search the forum for "R99" but didn't have any luck. So do you know if the R99 was a .357 and based on the S&W K frame?

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?

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.

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.

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