.45 Schofield by Smith and Wesson metal replica with working action.
This replica can be opened like the original by a top break action.
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 it made loading quicker and easier than the Colt revolver. He made several changes making it better suited for Army cavalry life. Smith and Wesson made this changes with the hope of an Army contract which it won. So it was issued alongside the Colt but 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 was a shorter .45 shell the Colt) as the Colt could use both bullets but the Schofield could only use Schofield's own bullet. Because of these problems in with the bullets, the Schofield was eventually stopped being issued.
The Schofield was still popular with non military people and was used by Buffalo Bill Cody, Frank and Jesse James, Cole and Jim Younger, Charlie Pitts, John Wesley Hardin, Bob Ford, Texas Jack Omohundro, Pat Garret, Virgil Earp, Bill Tilghman, Marshal Dallas Stoudenmire, and Ranald MacKinzie all did, among many others.
