Well, it is a beautiful pistol. Someone once called it the “Rollex of Old West pistols.” And it works for self defense, just fine...

Well, I guess this Uberti would be like the Fauxlex of the Old West Pistols.

But cool. Something about the “break” style is just awesome.

Price is not unreasonable, either.

It can be converted to use moon-clips in 45ACP. That would be fine for self defense with an even faster reloading capability. http://gunblast.com/TK-Schofield.htm

I have a couple of Ubrtis, a 1873 rifle in .45 Colt and an 1875 Remington “Outlaw” also in .45 LC. Fine guns. Buy it you won’t be sorry.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but it has always been my understanding that a handgun, whether a single shot or having a magazine, is a PISTOL.

A handgun which has a magazine in the form of a turning cylinder arrangement, is a REVOLVER.

Therefore, the handgun being discussed is not a pistol, but rather a revolver. By maintaining that basic nomenclature, one can visualize a weapon’s appearance and construction just by hearing a one-word description; either pistol or revolver.
