Antique SMITH & WESSON US Second Model SCHOFIELD Single Action Revolver
One of 5,934 Second Models Manufactured circa 1876-77!
Here we present an antique Smith & Wesson Second Model Schofield Single Action Revolver, manufactured circa 1876-77 in Springfield, Massachusetts with a total production of approximately 5,934. The right side of the ejector housing is marked “+SCHOFIELD’S PAT. APR. 22D 1873+”. The butt is marked “U.S.” along with the serial number “3883”. Many Schofield revolvers were issued to the 4th Cavalry which saw service in the Geronimo Campaign, along with the famous 9th and 10th U.S. Cavalry comprised of the “Buffalo Soldiers” stationed in the American Southwest. People such as the James Brothers, Cole Younger, U.S. Marshall Bill Tilghman and Chief Scout for Custer “Lonesome Charley” Reynolds were known to carry a Schofield revolver.
The overall condition is good. The action (hammer/trigger) is strong, though cylinder index and lockup are weak. The bore is good. Old nickel finish. This revolver opens with a tip-down barrel hinge break action. This example would be a great addition to a wild west collection!
