The Schofield was a top break single action revolver produced by Smith and Wesson. The advantage of this pistol was in how it was unloaded. The weapon came apart at the top and ejected all the cartridges. These pistols came in several different calibers. These pistols also came with a 7 ½" barrel. Some well know western icons reported to carry this pistol were Jesse James, John Wesley Hardin, Pat Garrett, Theodore Roosevelt, Virgil Earp, and Billy the Kid.
