Top Break is an exact replica of the Schofield Revolver. Designed by Major Schofield of U.S. Army. It is an improvement and up-grade of earlier top-break Single Action , produced in the line of the legendary firearms company Smith & Wesson. Schofield modified them to be more convenient in use for the Cavaliers. Graceful and accurate, the Schofield revolver was the choice of many gunslingers and entrepeneurs in the Old West. Jesse James is said to have carried both the Schofield and the Colt Single Actions simultaneously. After many trials and tests the United States Army contracted a total of over 3,000 Schofields and Russia contracted more over 41.000.
