The M1869 .45 caliber Schofield Single Action Revolver was a favorite of the U.S. Cavalry, stagecoach agents and Frank James. Wyatt Earp is known to have carried a similar version of the historic replica. This replica non-firing gun is a frontier classic and measures a whopping 13.5 inches with a 8 inch barrel. With real wood grips and working action, along with a top break action, this replica is an ideal prop for film, theatre, historical presentations and re-enactment use.
Available in two finishes: Polished Nickel 22-1008N or Antique Brass with Black Barrel 22-1008L. (select your finish in the shopping cart) A classic indeed, this replica is rich with history and a real prize for any collector.
The .45 Schofield was developed for use by the US Cavalry with the help of Major George W Schofield. It was based on the Smith and Wesson model No 3 which he originally purchased for his own use in the US 10th Cavalry as it was top break opening making loading quicker and easier than the Colt revolver. He made several changes making it better suited for Army cavalry life. Smith and Wesson made these changes with the hope of an Army contract which it won. Issued alongside the Colt, the Schofield used a shorter .45 shell than the Colt which led to problems in the field (the Colt used a .45 long and the Schofield required a shorter .45 shell). As the Colt could use both bullet sizes, the Schofield could only use Schofield's shorter bullet. The confusion caused by the bullets eventually led to the Schofield's termination as military issue, yet the gun remained a popular choice for civilians of both civil and uncivil disposition.
