You'd really have to want this one pretty badly, though :eek:

All 3 of the companies above have good revolvers. I think Cimarron imports Uberti revolvers, fixes them up a bit and they sell them.

Uberti is the only present maker of Schofield copies, sold here under whatever brand name. They also make a repro of the New Model Russian.
Beretta offers a repro of the No 3 New Model but since they own Uberti, I doubt they are going to duplicate production facilities and suspect it is made under the same roof as the other Italian copies. (None are detail copies which would make it difficult to use one as the basis for a fake, as I have seen done with Colt repros.)
The Armi San Marcos Schofield was so bad it just about ruined the maker and the importer. I know, I had one... briefly. Only gun I have ever known of to bring a cash refund from the importer.
Smith & Wesson did not make many Schofield reissues, they were too expensive for the CAS trade and of no other interest.
