Produced by Smith & Wesson from 1875 to 1915, the Model 3 Schofield Top Break revolver was designed to meet the needs of cavalry soldiers. The top break design allowed a shooter to easily eject spent cartridges and reload while on horseback. The pistol also became a favorite of such notables as Jesse James and Bill Hickok, and a version of it became a standard side arm in the Russian government. Many considered it superior to the 1873 Colt for mounted work.
