Product Summary

Initially designed for the Russian military, the United States Army adopted the Smith & Wesson Model 3 revolver in 1870, making it the first standard-issue cartridge-firing revolver in US service. Its unique break-top design allowed shooters to eject all of their empty rounds simultaneously reducing loading times. The Schofield Model 3 featured several design improvements by Major George W. Schofield, including a patented locking system and mounting the spring loaded barrel catch on the frame rather than the barrel. Smith & Wesson's modern reproduction of the Model 3 began in 2000 and has a few notable differences from the original design. The new version is slightly beefier than the original around the barrel and topstrap and it includes a transfer bar as a practical safety catch, preventing accidental discharge if dropped. This special commemorative revolver is one of only 151 ever made and comes with an anniversary medallion and a wooden display case. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
