1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    I have a pair of the Navy Arms Schofields.

    For those not familiar with this model, the Navy Arms version uses a stretched frame and cylinder to accommodate the .45 Colt cartridge.

    The S&W version is built to the original specifications. The frame and cylinder are shorter for the .45 S&W cartridge. Basically it is a shortened .45 Colt.

    A lot of people wonder where the name .45 Long Colt came from. Well, that was originally an unofficial name to distinguish more clearly the difference between the .45 Colt and the .45 S&W, sometimes erroneously called the .45 Short Colt.

    The Army tested both the Colt Single Action Army and the Schofield, and for Calvary use the Schofield was superior. It could be unloaded single handed, and in a fraction of the time the SAA took. It could also be loaded faster.

    The Achilles Heel of the Schofield was in the Army supply system. Handguns were issued as much as possible by unit for logistics. If a unit issued SAAs were mistakenly sent Schofield ammunition, they could still chamber and fire it. A unit with Schofields was out of luck, because the .45 Colt was too long. This finally reached a point where the Army decided to get rid of the Schofields, and sold them off as surplus.

    Wells Fargo bought many of them for their agents. Most of these had the barrels shortened to 5", and many were nickel plated. Others were bought and used by lawmen, outlaws, and others, mainly in the west. It was the eventual lack of .45 S&W ammo being stocked locally that led to their demise. (It was factory loaded up until WWII.)

    Some cowboy shooters used the .45 S&W in competition. Not all .45 Colt chambered rifles will cycle the .45 S&W, but some do. The attractive part is it saves on blackpowder. The .45 Colt really has more case capacity than it needs for cowboy shoots. And yes, .45 Schofield marked brass is available.

    BTW, speedloaders for the S&W Model 25-5 .45 Colt will work with the Schofield. The cylinder diameter and chamber positions are identical.

    BTW, one fine point that probably only collectors care about... The Navy Arms (Uberti) version is the Second Model. The S&W version above is a copy of the First Model. There are minor differences in the release latch and ejector prawl. Aermee San Marco also made Schofield copies, and they were the First Model. The latter were also made in .45 S&W.
