Manufactured betwween 1875 and 1877, the Schofiled model (from the name of the major George Schofield), is a modified Smith & Wesson N°3, to make iot easier for a cavalryman to reload while riding. ue to its reduced power and recoil compared to the Colt .45, it was easier to shoot accurately, yet still retained effective stopping power on the battlefield.
To be as close as possible to the reality, this revolver is full metal, and has a unique serial number.
The handle cover is made of synthetic, very resistant, wonnde-style or ivory-style finish, depending on the model.
It has natural sights : a round blade for front sight, and a V groove on the barrel release button for rear sight.
