Major George W. Schofield, a U.S. Army ordinance officer assigned to the 10th Cavalry, sought to improve on Smith & Wesson's Model No. 3 design and it became so popular that the U.S. Army ordered 8000 of the Schofield No. 3's, and many were used by the 4th Cavalry in the Geronimo campaign and by the Buffalo Soldiers of the 9th and 10th Cavalry. Later on the pistol was favored by members of the James-Younger gang.

The Bear River version of this legendary gun features the same top-break design, 6 realistic cartridges, and an authentic single action hammer. Powered by one 12 g CO2 cartridge, our version is capable of shooting BB's out at 430 fps through its 7" barrel!

Can't say enough about this revolver. Fun to shoot and a great deal for money. I've been looking at the air guns on your website and plan
to order again soon.

Great reproduction at a fair price.
November 16, 2019
Great reproduction, look and feel of the real thing, and exultant fit/finish. Fun to shoot and fairly accurate with back loaded pellet cartridges. Wood grips would be nice, but probably not practical due to the large CO2 cavity and attachment issues. The plastic grips have good coloration and texture, A light coat of Tung oil gives them a semi-gloss, hand rubbed, burlwood appearance. The rear loading pellet cartridges add the length of the shell to the barrel to improve accuracy and should be offered as an alternative to the front loading BB cartridges. The blister pack is an abomination. A gun of this quality deserved a BOX for display and storage.
ProsGreat reproduction, quality, price, fun to shoot.
ConsBlister pack, another different sized cartridge, lack of rifling.
Best UsesDisplay, plinking, target practice, historical reenactments.

Beautifull reproduction of the Schofield revolver..
October 23, 2019
Having both the 1875 Remington and the pellet only Peacemaker revolvers, I bought this
Schofield with great enthusiasm and expectation of the same remarkable accuracy and power
of my other 2 air guns. This replica however has real problems. The BB cartridges must be
removed from the revolver to be re-loaded, a time consuming and awkward procedure
compared to both the Peacemaker and the Remington; they can easily re-load with the
cartridges staying in the cylinder. Another problem is the hard plastic tip of each cartridge
holds those BBs with a hard, tight grip. The slightly smaller Black Diamond BBs are far more
accurate than say Copperheads in this weapon, but the system isn't as good as the
Peacemaker's or the Remington's rear bb/pellet placement.This rear loading also enhances
projectile velocity due to the length of the cartridge added to the barrel's length. This is partly
why the Remington and Peacemaker revolvers are so amazingly accurate. But in the Schofield's case, this isn't so, and with the tightly gripping
plastic tipped cartridges, feet per second and reliable accuracy suffer greatly. Now this is really
unfortunate, but worse with some BBs, than others. The slightly smaller (how do I know they're
smaller than the copperheads? They slip into the tips of the cartridges easier and are held less
tightly) Black Diamond BBs are pretty good but do not come close to the effective accuracy
and distance for both the Remington and the Peacemaker. (I shoot from 70+ feet, most of the
time) So hoping for better performance from my new Schofield, I bought the $13.00 set of 6
pellet cartridges, of the Bear River brand, and my revolver would not cycle them at all. The
cylinder balked and felt gummy, ultimately jamming the works and preventing the single
action cocking function. They were rear placement of the pellet and I was so looking forward
to the additional speed and possible accuracy of pellets with this revolver, but alas, the damn
pellet cartridges are useless in that gun. On a more positive note, this is one of the most
beautiful reproductions I've ever seen, and in that sense a full equal, and possible superior
product, than my other 2 reproductions. That's worth a full extra star in my rating 'cause this
is one fine piece of hardware, it really is. I think this weapon has remarkable potential, but a
redesign of the BBs to rear loading, and not shipping useless pellet cartridges to owners would
be a great start for what could be here. I don't think air gun companies are listening or paying
attention to their customers. I say this because I often read that a replacement magazine or clip,
"was made of cheaper plastic" or didn't fit or perform correctly.
Same for these 'optional pellet casings'for the Schofield. On another concern how many times
have you read ' if only the grips were real instead of plastic', 'I'd gladly pay more', or 'at least of
fer them as an option'. Com'on Umarex and Crossman, you could charge big! The "real" gun
companies do; $30.00-50.00, sometimes way more for nice grips. But I digress, the Schofield
is no exception; the grips look OK, but feel like plastic. So, my solution is to engage a fine
wood-worker, who says he can fashion a fine functioning set of wooden grips, god knows at what
cost. I want to summarize my review with a possible scenario; if this gun were to simply stop
shooting, it would have a place in my life as the most beautiful of my paperweights.
Happy shootin'!
ProsThis is one fine looking and holding and really unimaginably beautiful reproduction, you have to hold it in your hands to appreciate what I'm writing. For the money spent, I'm glad I own this piece, but it could have been (and may be in the future) an exceptional shooter. It isn't now, not at least compared to the Remington 1875 and Peacemaker single action revolvers.

Quality and Realism
September 18, 2018
A bunch of folks have said it and I will add to their voices; very nice replica gun. I have a friend who has an Uberti replica S&W Schofield #3 and he assures me this is virtually identical in weight, balance and feel to his Uberti version chambered in .45. Shoots nicely one handed (cowboy style) despite the weight of the pistol. Young shooters might have trouble with the weight but the fairly light trigger makes it very shoot-able for young shooters if they can handle the weight. Not a fan normally of chrome revolvers but this metal work is clean and smooth. The fit and overall finish are excellent for a replica at this price point. Since it is a smooth bore I'm not sure what advantage you would gain with pellets other than the weight but at short range this is a very accurate pistol which always make a gun more fun. I also have a Peacemaker and thee two guns complement each other nicely in a western pistol collection. And this is yet another pistol where the manufacturer had the good sense to incorporate the hex wrench for the CO2 screw into the grip. I have included two photos just to give some scale to the gun for potential buyers. I am 6' and wear size L gloves so you get some idea how it looks in-hand.
ProsVery nicely built and finished realistic replica pistol. easy to load BBs and easy to chamber the rounds. Top latch engages with a nice positive feel and releases easily. The whole feel of the pistol is very realistic and should provide a certain pride of ownership.
ConsReally can't think of a single one. The cylinder has a tad more play than I would like but I wouldn't expect it to be a closer tolerance at this price.
Best UsesPlinking and practice with cowboy style shooting. Excellent for practicing those SA skills.

I absolutely LOVE this pistol ! Very well made & love the fun of opening it up to change shells ! I am impressed with the overall build & firing this, a little heavier then my Colt Peacemaker but feels real & fires almost like a real one. Pretty darn accurate, I have a real S&W old wooden case I found & sits inside with extra shell casing & looks like the real deal !!
This is one of my pride & joys in my air pistol collection, a must have IMO. This could have a higher price tag & I would still be happy with buying it again if I had too !!!!
ProsGreat price, well made & fun to shoot
ConsNON !!

This is a beautiful replica airgun. I ordered the Nickel version because, I cant help myself, I just like shiny objects. The finish is without flaws. The mechanics of the revolver operate smoothly. It shoots fairly accurately. Overall it is very nice. Im pleased with this purchase. Hang it on your wall so you can admire it.
ConsIt comes in a plastic clamshell. I greatly prefer a box. Objectively this shouldn’t make a difference but I generally equate plastic clamshells with “cheap” which this is not.

Very good Schofield replica
January 1, 2018
I own a real-steel Schofield in .45LC, and this airgun is an extremely faithful reproduction of the real thing. It's dimensionally identical, only slightly less weighty in the hand, and shoots beautifully. The CO2 usage is also better than many other CO2-utilizing revolvers, with a very good seal over the front and rear of the shells and at the powerlet in the grip. It will allow for many hours of quality practice away from an actual range. Also, Airgun Depot's processing and shipping, even with the holiday rush, was fast and flawless!

However, there is a fairly noticeable fit-and-finish defect on the one I received, namely the crown of the muzzle is cut a good 20 off-true. Using a caliper with a fixed right angle, you can see in this photo of it's cut off-true along the length of the barrel. This doesn't affect the accuracy or function of the gun in any measurable way, nor is it the fault of Airgun Depot, but it is a conspicuous defect on an otherwise outstandingly-made pistol.
Pros- Excellent CO2 usage - Above-average accuracy for smoothbore BB barrel at 15 yards - Extremely good reproduction of real-steel both in looks and function
Cons- Manufacturing quality control obviously less than what it should be for the MSRP

Excellent shooter
December 19, 2017
I own the non-chrome version of this shooter and it is one of my favorites. I invested in the pellet cartridges (sold separately) which allow you to shoot almost any type of .177 pellet; you are not limited by the length of pellets at all. I wasn't expecting much in the area of accuracy on this gun because the barrel is not rifled; however, it is surprisingly accurate. I surmise due to the longer barrel (longer than most air pistols) and when you use the pellet cartridges it adds almost another two inches due to the pellets loading in the rear of the shell rather than the front like the BBs do. I was hitting a Tide detergent bottle consistently at 15+ yards one-handed with this pistol. I'm very pleased.
ProsLong barrel, surprisingly accurate Can use BB or pellet cartridges Trigger pull feels perfect Top break authentic loading just like the original
ConsRear of the gun (butt/grips) are plastic so although the gun has a nice heft, it is slightly unbalanced. Single action only (has to be cocked each time just like the original) is this really a con? Maybe not :)

Air Pistol Masterpiece
December 8, 2016
I'm not exaggerating, this pistol is truly excellent in every way. The list of outstanding features include a superb trigger, great accuracy for an open sight handgun, fit and finish about the best I've seen out of 40+ pistols I have, excellent use of CO2 for a hard-hitting gun -- I got 14 six shot loads on one canister, and on and on. No pistol is perfect, but this one is really close. It makes all the right clicks when you cock it, if you know what I mean. The shells are not interchangeable with Dan Wessons or Colt or Swiss Arms, but I don't care. I don't own a Webley but I read where those shells can be used. The good news is that the Wesson speedloader works just fine with this gun. It took me about a minute between firing the full six shots and reloading not using the speedloader, and just a tad faster with. A nice leisurely pace gets you good accuracy and plenty of shots. I use a separate wrench for the CO2 cartridge, but a wrench is built into the the removable half of the handle. I'm afraid to drop the handle using it, but not the wrench, which happens once in a while. Really, this revolver is slicker than owl dust. You need this gun. Five stars aren't enough on this one.
ProsTrigger, accuracy, classy looks, heft, feel in your hand, fit and finish, fair price for what you get. Don't forget fast AGD service and free shipping.
ConsThe finger-slicing plastic packaging from hell. Also, the wife saw the box arriving.
