nice looking schofield

Saw this at my lgs Saturday and went back and looked at it today. I really wish I had the money. I don't know if you can see it in the pictures but there are no screws holding the stocks. How do they do that?

    No idea. Is it a Cimarron No. 3 or is the book underneath just there? Looking at the Cimarron parts diagram, it shows grip screws...

    My Navy Arms Schofield has one grip screw...the escutcheon does not show on the other side...is there a screw on the bottom of the grip frame?

    The only screw is in the front of the grip frame and the lgs owner said that held the spring. I can not find any other picture that doesn't have a screw. I guess it wouldn't matter until you have to take them off. Yes it a navy arms by uberti clone of a model 3 schofield. I don't know why the picture is so small, makes it hard to see.

    Every Schofield reproduction I have seen has a grip screw...They appear to be aftermarket grips...take a close look at it to make sure some idiot didn't glue them on.

    Glued on was the only thing I could come up with but I thought nobody would do that.

    Neat gun!!!!!!!!!!!! I always wanted a top break revolver!!!!!!!!! however if this is an original Schofield I probably couldn't afford it. I might look into Navy Arms like Jayhawker's got.

    The S&W custom shop brought out some Schofields a few years ago....if you can find one they are an excellent grab...though they tend to be an expensive one...

    This very early Schofield shows grips with a screw and the Uberti clones I've seen also have them. It's a little pricey! :wink:

    There's no such thing as having too much ammo, unless you're on fire or trying to swim!
