Got a gun in to transfer that I've always wanted to see:

Image

It really does pivot open - Like it's made out of 2 main parts:

Image

And the center of the cylinder pushes all the cartridges out as it pivots open:

Image

And I REALLY like this part!!

Image

It's made by Uberti and is reproduction of a Schofield Revolver or a S&W Model 3.

I think I want one now - but that probably ain't gonna happen!!
They are pretty expensive and I still have a bunch of doctor bills to pay... )-:

Uberti and Cimarron make reproductions - I can get a new Cimarron with a 7" barrel for $850....
And even more is the Urberti at $925+ )-:
A little over my head for right now.

But it was awesome to be able to have a good look at this one!!

Ive got 2 Webley mkvi 455 break open revolvers that are like that... they were made in 1918 just a few months apart from each other

They look like this one... very interesting hand guns

I like the looks of that revolver Jason, and it was nice of them to name it after you :great:
You getting any royalties? :funny:
I know you guys have seen this one before, bought it at a gun show, and if I remember right, I gave around $170 for it.
Made around 1896, it's a S&W 38 Safety Hammerless in .38 S&W, top break "Lemon Squeezer".

Not yet Husker - I'll have to get the mail and see if that check shows up... :mrgreen:

Wow -Those are some pretty awesome revolvers you guys have!!

My cousin is the guy that got the Uberti.

His wife said they REALLY wanted an original Schofield revolver and had their eye on one that in really good shape.
She said, "But they wanted almost $20,000 for it." :shock:
I think she was exaggerating a bit - The few I've looked at were more in the $4,000-$6,000 range.
But I haven't really checked into it much - Maybe there are some people asking that much for and original... :dunno:

You can get into the webleys that have been shaved for 45acp with moon clips for around 500ish. both of mine have been shaved, but I have 45 auto rim brass so I got to do away with the moon clips.

Show me yours and I'll show you mine? Okay, mine is a S&W 3rd model double action revolver in 38SW. Also a top-break from the mid 1890's. It has the 'scarce' 5" barrel with crisp rifling and the nickle finish is near 100%. The trigger, trigger guard, and hammer are case hardened, grips are original.

What do the grips appear to be made of Codger?

Mine are currently tore down, I'm waiting on phat mike to measure the feed pawl on the one and lengthen the feed pawl on the other one to tighten the cylinder wobble up....

We had a couple S&W top break snub nosed .38's when we were kids that we played with. Neither was a functioning pistol (at least we didn't think they were). :hmmm: :groan: I think my older brother got them after my Dad died but now that my brother is also dead and I don't communicate much (never) with anyone in my family or my sister-in-law, I'll never know.

As do I, but I find it particularly useless. I keep thinking that I'll but some ammo for it so I can at least shoot it once, but the ammo is expensive (to me) and I don't really want to chance hurting the finish. So, it sits in the safe and I have no use for safe queens, but it belonged to my FIL.

I'd say its kind of a "family heirloom" then - and theres certainly nothing wrong with that. (-:

I love the old break top revolvers. They all need old fashioned leather flap-over holsters. Thanks for the great pics!
