were .44/40 or .44 Russian. Of course, I'm just getting into this western gun stuff, so I may be wrong as two boys fucking on the White House lawn.
they were .45 colt & .45 S&W(.45 schofield),good gun
i think they were model 1873's...could be wrong
the Schofield was produced from 1875-1878,designed by Major George Schofield as a replacement for the 1873 Colt "peacemaker".The Army wanted it to handle the .45 long colt round but Smith & Wesson designed a shorter round, the S&W.45 or .45 Schofield.The Schofields downfall was the inability to chamber the .45 long Colt, so it was discontinued.
There are 3 different replica manufacturers of Schofields today.Armi san marco,Uberti,and S&W.The ASM Schofield is chambered in .45 long Colt,the Uberti is chambered in .38 special,44-40,and .45 Colt.Smith & Wesson's Schofield is chambered in .45 Schofield only.
The James,and Younger brothers were known to carry Schofields as was Buffalo Bill,and John Wesley Hardin.
