Product Summary

In the late 1860's the United States Army was seeking to replace their aging 1860 Colt percussion revolvers, and their testing narrowed the selection down to two options, the Colt Single Action and the S&W Model 3 American. While the American had superior loading and unloading characteristics, it was judged too delicate and was also less powerful than the Colt Model 1873 that the Army ultimately chose. In 1875 Major George W. Schofield patented improvements in the design of the American and the Schofield Patent Revolver No. 3 was born. Definitely ahead of it's time, it could be operated with one hand on horseback, and empty cases automatically ejected. The Army purchased some 9000 of them for use by cavalry troops. Due to a lack of promotion, however, the Schofield never really caught on, and production was ceased. The Cimarron Schofield is the most authentic modern reproduction available today. Chambered in .45 Long Colt, it has a standard blued finish and two-piece walnut grips. It's a great choice for cowboy action shooting and mounted shooting competition.

Caliber Dictionary

The Below Information Has Been Provided From Our Gun Caliber Dictionary And Is Meant For Informational Purposes Only. It Is Not Intended to Describe The Unique Specifications For This Ammunition.
The 45 Colt (45 Long Colt) was introduced in 1873 in Colt's Single Action Army. Adopted by the U.S. military in 1875, it served until 1892 when it was replaced by the less powerful (and unsatisfactory) 38 Long Colt. Originally loaded with 40 grains of blackpowder and a 255-grain bullet the 45 Colt produced about 900 feet per second for more than 400 foot-pounds of energy, a powerful handgun cartridge for its day--and any day. Using a .454-inch bullet, today's standard load retains the 255-grain bullet at 860 fps. Lighter bullets at somewhat higher velocities are available. 45 Colt was the most common chambering in Colt's single action. Today it is chambered in virtually all centerfire single-action revolvers and has been chambered in numerous large-frame double-action revolvers. 45 Colt is the most popular revolver cartridge in cowboy action shooting, and remains a powerful and effective personal defense cartridge, its only drawback being the necessity for a large revolver to house it. — Craig Boddington
