Inquiry

Wasn't there a double-action version of this made in the late 1880s? -Anonymous

Smith did come out with a break top double action in 1881 called the First Model Double Action or the New Model Navy, both in 44 Russian. A later version in 44-40 was called the Double Action Frontier--Ruzhyo 18:27, 11 April 2010 (UTC)


anyone know if any company makes a reproduction of the schofield?

Uberti

Does anybody make a reproduction of the Schofield without the weird curved grips? I like the grips of the Russian Model even if they are very small in my hands), but hate the way the trigger spur fells. I was going to get a Beretta Laramie, but could not find one with a decent barrel length (anything longer than 6 1/2 inches, but shorter than 11 inches is good for me).

big confusion

the gun used by Sam Elliott in Tombstone is NOT a Schofield , it is a New Model No. 3 , the last of the S&W single action Top-Breaks . The beretta laramie follows the lines of that gun , but is not an exact replica , the extraction system is similar to older S&W models.

I should know i have an original no.3 NM

Reloading

Now from my understanding, if one wanted to reload the Schofield, all the rounds were loaded at once. How did this work? I thought revolvers you had to reload each round one at a time? - User:1morey August 13, 2011 6:07 PM (EST)

You still had to but the bullets into the cylinder one at a time (unless clips were used, but don't think they were invented till the 1900s) but the revolutionary part of the revolver was the top break design that meant that when opened, all of the empty cases were ejected at once, and new bullets could be loaded into all of the chambers without turning the cylinder. By comparison fixed frame revolvers such as the Single Action Army were much slower, requiring the user to eject the spent cartridge through the loading gate with the under barrel rod and insert a new one, and then turn the chamber for each subsequent bullet. --commando552 17:23, 14 August 2011 (CDT)
