Colt was happy to take on the project.  Making arrangements with Eli Whitney Jr. to assemble the new revolvers at the Whitneyville Factory, Colt was able to secure a government contract on January 4th, 1847.  The revolvers would be purchased by the government for $25 each, with the first 100 delivered in three months.  Colt christened the new firearm the “Walker,” named after Samuel Walker.

In order to meet the deadline, Colt contracted the firm of Slate and Brown to produce the cylinders and barrels, and William Ball to produce the cones (known today as the nipple).  The frames were to be made and assembled at the Whitneyville Factory.  Working around the clock, Colt finally notified the government that the first 220 revolvers were ready for inspection on June 7, 1846.  On July 28, 1846, Colt sent Walker his own personal pair of revolvers.
