    Everyone has one. My gun wish list grows exponentially, especially this time of year.

    Top on my list today is the new Remington 870DM - an 870 featuring detachable mags. Oh yeah!

    What say you?

    Smith & Wesson Model 3...Schofield Model


    [​IMG]

    It's a Single Action, cartridge firing Top Break Action produced by S&W circa 1870 to 1915... and now offered as a reproduction by Smith & Wesson and Uberti.

    Chambered in .45 Schofield...the "Schofield" model, named after Major George W. Schofield, who made his own modifications to the Model 3 to meet his perceptions of the Cavalry's needs.

    S&W incorporated these modifications into an 1875 design they named after the Major, planning to obtain significant military contracts for the new revolver.

    The U.S. Army adopted the .44 S&W American caliber Smith & Wesson Model 3 revolver in 1870, making the Model 3 revolver the first standard-issue cartridge-firing revolver in US service.

    Most military pistols until that point were black powder cap and ball revolvers, which were (by comparison) slow, complicated, and susceptible to the effects of wet weather.

    In 1875, the US Ordnance Board granted S&W a contract to outfit the military with Model 3 revolvers incorporating the design improvements of Major George W. Schofield, providing that they could make the revolvers fire the .45 Colt ( AKA ".45 Long Colt" ) ammunition already in use by the US military.

    But...S&W instead developed their own, slightly shorter .45 caliber round, the .45 Schofield, otherwise known as the .45 S&W.

    When it became obvious in the field that the two cartridges would not work interchangeably in the Schofield (although they both worked in the Colt 1873), the U.S. Government adopted the shorter .45 Schofield cartridge as the standard cartridge.

    Despite the change, older inventory of the longer .45 Colt rounds in the supply line caused the Army to drop most of the Schofield's and continue with the Colt.

    Major Schofield had patented his locking system and earned a payment on each gun that Smith & Wesson sold, and at the time his older brother, John M. Schofield, was the head of the Army Ordnance Board...and the political situation may have been the main issue for the early end of army sales.

    Excellent choice, S13. I see Phideaux is having a bad influence on you.

    I'd like a Henry in .357 mag
    and a Springfield RO Elite to replace the Rock Island 1911 that I traded.

    But this year, Santa said she's just getting me a box of ammo.

    An actual Russian AK
    A 44 mag Marlin
    A 17 HMR (Ruger?)
    An Anschutz 22LR
    If not an Anschutz, a CZ 22LR
    A custom built 25-'06, on a Remington 700 action, with a fluted heavy sporter 26" barrel, Hogue stock, and 4-12x Swarovski

    I will probably never have any of those but the Marlin 44 mag. That one is going to happen, hopefully sooner than later...

    Someday I'd like an Ak made in the soviet era, a nice 45 colt pistol and maybe a lever action 22LR.
