Type: BB/Pellet air revolver.
Manufacturer/Distributor: Bear River.
Model: Schofield No. 3
Materials: Mostly metal with plastic grips.
Weight: 2.4 pounds. (1089 grams)
Barrel: 7 inch (178mm) smooth bore barrel.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.
Action: Revolver, single action only.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's and .177 Cal. Pellets.
Ammunition Capacity: 6 rounds.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the single action only Schofield No. 3 CO2 BB-Pellet Revolver is what you would expect from a pistol of this design. Like the Colt Single Action Army the trigger pull is very short, light and crips, perfect for taking your time and getting a precise shot on target. You will of course have to cock the hammer manually before each shot ao no real action shooting.
Accuracy: I have not tested the Schofield No. 3 CO2 BB-Pellet Revolver in the Replica Airguns Sea Can Indoor Airgun Range but plan to get to it shortly. I will test out both 4.5mm Steel BB’s and some .177 caliber lead Pellets and see how the different ammo types effect both power and accuracy. Keep in mind the Schofield No. 3 CO2 BB-Pellet Revolver has a smooth bore barrel but I am pretty sure pellets will still perform well at 30 feet away.
Build Quality: The Schofield No. 3 CO2 BB-Pellet Revolver is built a lot like the Webley MK VI .455 CO2 Shell Loading Revolver line, perhaps even made in the same factory in Taiwan? The Schofield No. 3 CO2 BB-Pellet Revolver is pretty much an all metal construction other than the plastic grips and any internal seals. The fit and finish is excellent with a great overall weight in the hand. The pistol grips is a lot like what you have with the Colt Single Action Army pistol but the Schofield No. 3 CO2 BB-Pellet Revolver is a lot more front end heavy because of its beefy barrel.
Realism: In terms of replicating a real steel Schofield No. 3 CO2 BB-Pellet Revolver for sure looks and feels that part. The reassessed barrel and well hidden CO2 screw don’t give anything away that the Airgun version is not the real deal. But as with all of these shell loading Airgun Revolvers, the shells are actually closer to a .380 Caliber in diameter rather than a 45 which is what the real steel Schofield No. 3 CO2 BB-Pellet Revolver would be designed for.

If you are like a bulky revolver with good weight to it then the Bear River Schofield No. 3 is it.
Can shoot Steel BB’s or Pellets since it comers with both shell types.
Well concealed CO2.
Shell loading design that loads from the back so no need to remove shells if you wish not to.
Single Action Only hammer and trigger action feel good, nice and light with short take-up and release.
Fairly discreet safety location right behind the hammer so easy to get at.
Super easy to load, pellet shells can even be reloaded with shells in the gun if you are using the pellet shells.
Really like the Nickel Finish on this gun.
Can get simulated Ivory grips for it if you prefer that look.
Sights are not adjustable.
Warning instructions on side of the frame.
Barrel is not rifled for pellet use?
Only a Single Action Only Hammer and Trigger but true to the style of the gun.
Yet another classic shell loading CO2 BB Revolver, and again the more the merrier in my option! I like that you get 12 shells with our kit version, 6 removable shells for 4.5mm Steel BB’s and 6 removable shells for .177 caliber Pellets. The Schofield No. 3 CO2 BB-Pellet Revolver is for sure a hefty revolver but the pistol grip is not super large so even people with smaller hands should not have a problem shooting the Schofield No. 3 CO2 BB-Pellet Revolver. The real problem is deciding which Shell Loading Airgun Revolver to buy now since we have so many to choose from… Classic or modern, nickel or black, or perhaps weathered?
