Saw an interesting video on the "airsoft" version of the Schofield, from 2017.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpmZPoUC0jw

Interesting how it came in 3 finishes back in 2017 (black, antique & nickel) and grip needed screwdriver to remove it to insert the CO2. And they call it the 1877 Major 3, not the Schofield.

Also looks like it shoots with a lot less velocity than the BB/Pellet version.

Sort of bugs me that the airsoft guys get all the choices. But I suspect it is a much bigger market.

Finally got to test the accuracy/velocity of my new toy :) . One hand upright shooting @ 25 feet, 14.5°C, no wind.

Replaced the smoothbore barrel for a .177 rifled barrel, much better accuracy, SAME POWER.

I think the European (ASG) pellet versions had a rifled barrel.

Had 2 small issues with my Schofield's left grip panel. First one, the decorative screw was protruding too far inside and butted against the CO2 cartridge, leaving a gap between the grip panel and grip frame. Easy to fix, I just ground the end of the screw a little and problem solved. Second one, when I put in the second CO2 cartridge in, despite being careful not to tighten it too much, the plastic around the hex-shaped tool cracked. I didn't fix it yet, but I'll just unscrew the tool off the grip and fill the voids with JBWeld before putting it back in place. Will post a picture when done.

Many gun's now have the tool included in the grip, wich is a good idea, but not strong enough imo. So I'm not using it, I prefer to have a separate allen key to do it, much stronger...

Excellent idea! I don't want to risk ruining the grip, even when it'll be repaired :roll: .

Hey BTW, have you got yours back from the warranty repair?

I second what Silentman said.

I read in the early reviews, before I got my Schofield, that the hex key in the grip was an issue, and was prone to breaking. Therefore, I used an allen wrench to tighten down the CO2, right from the start. So I have never had a problem.

But on all my Umarex Colt Peacemakers, I have always used the key in the grip to tighten the CO2, without any problems.

Maybe Umarex makes them a bit stronger?

BTW, there was a guy on eBay that made custom grips for the western airguns, Crosman 1861 & 1875, Schofield, Peacemakers.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/GRIPS-Custom-V ... SwZTNeSEX3

Not sure how active he still is.

I have no doubts about that, they feel way more sturdy.

I didn't see anything offered for an UX Colt SAA or Schofield, only for vintage Crosman. If I really want some, I think I'll make'em :wink: .

Maybe contact the seller airmec. I recall he made replica "aged ivory" "stag horn" & "bone' grips for the Umarx Colt peacemaker & Crosman 1875.

His prices were fair, but shipping to Canada doubled the price.
