Schofield No. 3 CO2 BB revolver
Read and see MORE ABOUT THE SCHOFIELD No. 3 CO2 BB REVOLVER in Dennis Adler's latest Airgun Experience Blog.
This 6-shooter is an authentic replica of the famous Schofield No. 3 designed by Army Ordnance officer, Major George W. Schofield of the 10th Cavalry.
The U.S. Army ordered thousands of the Schofield No. 3, and many were used by the 4th Cavalry in the Geronimo campaign and by the Buffalo Soldiers of the 9th and 10th Cavalry. The revolver was popular among horse soldiers because of its top-break, rapid ejection system.
The Bear River version of this legendary gun features the same top-break design and will bring you hours of plinking fun.

Things I liked: I like the overall appearance of this Bear River Schofield No. 3 BB revolver. The revolver is all metal except for the plastic grips. The finish of the metal is a uniform, unblemished gunmetal gray color. Although the grips are plastic, they have a very good simulated wood appearance. The grips are very smooth and comfortable to hold. The revolver functions very well. The barrel latch spring is not too heavy. The barrel hinge is very smooth when the cylinder is opened. As a single action revolver, the trigger is very light and short. The hammer cocks very easily. The best overall feature is the excellent accuracy for a BB shooting revolver.
Things I would have changed: I wouldn't change anything. However after looking at some pictures of the original firearms, a brass barrel latch would be an attractive highlight on the gunmetal gray revolver.
What others should know: Because this revolver fires very easily, handle it with care whenever it is loaded. I tested the accuracy with a variety of BBs by shooting 6 shot groups from a bench rested position at a target distance of 18 feet. My best 6 shot group was 5/8 inch with Umarex Precision Steel BBs. My worst 6 shot group was 1 1/2 inches with Crosman Copperhead BBs. Other 6 shot groups: Smart Shot (1 1/16 inches), Daisy Premium (7/8 inch), Hornady Black Diamond (1 3/16 inches), Avanti (15/16 inch), and Marksman (1 1/16 inches). My total shot count was only about 60 on a single CO2 cartridge.
Things I liked: This is a Real Nice Example of the great S&W Schofield Revolver. It looks and works great. I am pleased that Old West Revolvers are making their way to Air Guns. I am very please to own one.
Things I would have changed: I would love to see a "Wells Fargo Version". These were made by taking "Army Surplus" which were sold, cutting the barrels to 5" and Nickle Plated and sold to Wells Fargo and were engraved "W. F. & Co." & "W. F. Express Co." and carried by their "Special Agents, Agent/Station Managers, etc."...
Things I liked: This is a high quality gun. The look, the feel, the function are all excellent. After two weeks and 300 rounds it is now one of my favorite guns. I find the mechanics of ejecting and loading the shells satisfying. On par with the Colt Peacemaker (my other favorite). Best for cans and other knock down targets.
Things I would have changed: Things I did change: I used a black Sharpie on the awful warning verbiage on the guns right side. I then wiped it with a gun cleaning cloth (lightly oiled). The lettering is now nearly invisible. It comes in a blister pack, a bit disappointing.
What others should know: I use Excite lead BBs. They hit harder, far less ricochet, a step up from regular BBs.

I am living in Germany, and here, Co2 Guns without the "F in a pentagon sign" are forbidden. On some pictures at the pyramydair website, there can be seen a "F" on the right side of the gun. Is this "F in a pentagon" also marked on the retail version?
Yes. I own one and there is indeed one of those markings
has anybody put a pellet thru one of these with the pellet shells? Better accuracy?
Is it also possible to fire pellets through the cartridges?
