I just bought a new Uberti S&W Schofield Top Break .45LC. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but I really love the quality. Theyalso are just a cool gun.

I think you will enjoy it . I had one in 44-40 with a 5" barrel that shot like a house on fire in about 2003 . I was doing the CAS / SASS at that time and it don't slip hammer was the only draw back for me . I sold it to a buddy and he just loves it and it is his hunting and fishing carry gun and he don't miss with it ......

I hope you have better luck with your new Uberti than I did.
I bought a new Uberti falling block 22 on Feb 22.
A week later I fired it 4 times and it would not hold the hammer back to fire after that.
It has been sent to two different locatiions for repair and I haven't seen it since.
I'm at the point of asking for my money back.
The dealer would not take the box to return it in and that concerns me.
Performance like that puts a bad taste in your mouth about a product.

Your six gun looks sooo good!
Uberti has a knack for reproducing the original look.
I've pondered buying one of the 38/357s many times.
The falling block was so beautuful I just could not resist buying it.
I'm sceptical now, but where can you find a reproduction that looks so authentic?
I look at the selection of Uberties every time I go in Gander Mtn.
You like TX will probably never have any trouble with the Schofield.

There is only 3 parts and spring in that Rolling Block action for the hammer and trigger . #10 is a trigger , #115 hammer stirrup , #175 sear and #175 spring . It is the the easiest action in the world to work on . I would get my money back . It take 5 mins to look at it see the broken part and either repair the broke part or get a new part . They are jerking you off .

Nice gun Buck! My brother had a 6" but I found it barrel heavy, that 5" looks like it would be ballanced better.
Hey, thanks for finding my hat!!

Cowboybuck, that is one fine looking revolver. I have three old topbreaks (.32 &.38) and enjoy shooting them. I've handled ones like yours at gun shows but have never fired one. I always thought that Uberti had a pretty good reputation, I have shot several of their single actions and they all shot well and had excellent fit and finish.
Looking forward to a range report on yours.

Congrats, there, Cowboy. I've always liked the looks of break open revolvers and the way they work. Oh, yeah, we will be needing a range report.

I hope you get your gun back soon. I agree with TX GUN Runner.

You need not join a club or join CAS/SASS club to shoot the match unless it is a big state match or something . In fact the will loan you gun to shoot a match if your missing one .

Find a club near you .

and learn the rules

Watch a few videos

I agree with tex as mentioned earlier I have a uberti 45 long colt with the birds mouth handle. Didn't take long and that sweet sound that's made when u spin the cylinder went silent. A piece of spring steel that was poorly punched in manufacturing failed. 10 minutes with my gunsmith workin like a champ. They're jerkin you around or don't know what they're doin. Take it to somebody else.
