Details

Schofield Patent Revolver - In the late 1860's the U.S. Army was shopping for a breech loading fixed cartridge revolver to replace the aging 1860 Colt Army percussion revolvers. They tested the Colt single action and the S&W Model No. 3 American. The test resulted in the adoption of the Colt single action Army Model of 1873 and passing on the less powerful and more delicate 1869 S&W Model No. 3 American. Because the superior loading/reloading capability of the S&W American was recognized by Army ordnance, in 1875 Major George W. Schofield identified and Patented improvements in the design of the S&W Model No. 3 American and the Schofield Patent Revolver (Model No. 3 Schofield) was born. The S&W Model No. 3 Schofield was greatly improved over the Model No. 3 American. The latch on the Schofield can be operated with one hand while on horseback and empty cases automatically ejected. Considered by many to be superior to the Colt single action when in the hand of mounted troops... The Schofield was definitely produced ahead of its time. The Army purchased some 9000 Schofields but due to a lack of promotion by the maker, one of America's greatest firearms ceased production. The Cimarron Schofield is the most authentic replica Schofield available today.

Hard to believe its a replica ! Review by Dnickels

I purchased my gun sight unseen as a special order from a local shop. Everything I had read about the Cimarron/Uberti guns had been very positive, though. My first reaction when I took the gun out of its box was amazement at the heft, finish, and quality. Everyone in the shop agreed it was a beautiful, and beautifully made piece. Workmanship and finish are great. On the range, the gun has an excellent balance. Although it is pretty heavy, it feels good, is not barrel-heavy, and has less kick in .45 Long Colt than the average 9mm or .380. It's a very smooth, easy to use, revolver. It's also very accurate, although I do find the polished steel front sight a bit hard to see and I have blackened the edge with a Sharpie pen (easy to wipe off). While not "cheap" the revolver is not out of line with other quality hand guns. I did find that it does not like Winchester ammo due to case sizing, though, but several other name brands work perfectly. (Posted on 10/25/13)

You can't ask for a better Gun. I traded for mine in a Gunshop here in Arkansas. I left happy and they were happy, so we had a good trade. The fit and finish on this gun is outstanding. Function is great. Keep it up Cimarron!!! (Posted on 7/27/13)

Mine just arrived after waiting 4 months for it to be built, and I am not disappointed! I haven't had the chance to fire it yet, but I am very impressed with its overall quality. It feels as solid and operates as smoothly as my Model 586 S&W revolver, and has better balance. Plus the top break ejection is just plain cool :) (Posted on 5/6/13)
