NRA Gun of the Week: Uberti 1875 No. 3 Top Break Revolver

posted on December 2, 2017

Originally designed as a U.S. Cavalry pistol by Major George Schofield, this Italian-born reproduction of the 2nd Model Schofield is brought to shore by Uberti USA. It is rendered with modern tooling and styled as close to the original as possible. Rich, blued steel and color case-hardened parts, along with fine walnut stocks, make this pistol quite a pleasure to behold. Its fast opening, top-break action make way for quick reloads of its .38 Spl. chambering—likely why gunslingers of the American West chose to carry the original Schofield in their leathers. To learn more about this modern take on a classic pistol, check out this week's NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by American Rifleman's Kelly Young. To see other great reproductions, visit
