I have a Uberti Walker I bought a few years back, and the fit and finish are excellent. I used to think of the repro hoglegs as just "toys" or throwaway guns, but the Uberti Walker is made like a revolver that is actually meant to be fired.

I have two Pietta pieces, an 1858 Remington and an 1861 Navy. The Remington has a horrible action, the effort required to cock it is considerable.It's otherwise well-made, but it lacks the feeling of quality I get from my Walker. The 1861 Navy is a bit better, with a tight lockup and a better action. It still feels a bit "cheap" to me, though. Mabe there's a reason that the equivalent weapon made by Uberti was $100 more.
