Our Assessment: This Uberti replica of the Model 3 Schofield Revolver is a single action top-break revolver chambered for .45 Colt cartridges. The gun was originally designed by Major George Schofield for use with the cavalry and became a popular option among shooters in the late 19th century. Particularly useful for the cavalry, the revolver’s top-break design and automatic ejection made the gun far easier to load and unload while in the saddle with reins held in one hand. The gun features a stirrup-style top-latch and automatic cartridge extractor. This modern replica is beautifully finished and has faux cartouches to give it some added flavor. This is a beautiful handgun that you do not want to miss out on! Good luck in your bidding.
