Schofield next conversion project

Well, I got a new revolver that going to be my next 40 cal conversion.

It is beautiful.You would swear that it is a real Schoefield .It looks that good and is solid and not flimsy at all. This is made in Taiwan and is pretty high quality. It is distributed by Bear River Outdoors also here Schofield No. 3 CO2 BB Revolver, Full Metal. Air guns -

The cylinder is only big enough for 40 caliber paint but will still fit in my time period category for quickdraw .

Intriguing. Will it use the same shells as the Colt you made?

I just finished another Colt SA but this time I went bigger on the shells to .437 diameter and a slightly larger barrel diameter. It was still not enough for 43 caliber but using bigger material makes it a lot stronger and a little easier to machine.

The accuracy of these 40 calibers are pretty good even out to thirty feet.I bought a 12000 round count from nelson paint. The diameter varies a lot but the gun isn't having any issues with that variance. I'm really happy with the results.

The barrel length on this Schofield is going to be a bear.

Double FYI for paintball rules there should be no "offer" of surrender, its either mandatory surrender at X distance when guy is behind you or no surrender and you get shot in the booty. "offer" of surrender makes for some ridiculous and dangerous john woo tactics.

pair of quickdraw pistols

here you can see the difference.The shell on the left is a 1/32 larger.It doesn't sound like much but it makes the machining better.Less vibration while machining. The threaded end on the barrel of the silver colt is an experiment for an adjustable gap between the barrel and cylinder.Once I have the info I need I will machine it down to flush.

With 2 guns now I can put it to practice.

I have been picking up Colt pistols when I can. I do expect to make a few.

Right now I'm just shooting to find where I can improve the reliability. The reliability of the pistols are fine. It's the paint. I shot about 140 shots yesterday without a break in the barrel.

I had a funny incident also. The co2 was running low and the last 2 paintballs were in the barrel.I put in a new 12 and loaded up the paint and when I shot, three paintballs came out and hit the target and broke on the target in about a 3" circle.

That was cool. We did it on purpose several more times and it worked everytime.

I'll see about doing a video.

Admittedly I have no reason to get something like this but DAMN it would be fun. Love the break action pistol better then the Colt.

well I just got in from shooting my colt conversion with the new mods.

I shot over 500 rounds without a single break in the barrel. The 40 caliber red paintballs kept blowing up before I modded it. None broke this evening.

On this 95* evening I got over 100 shots on a 12 gram. 80 of those shots were still hitting pretty strong and eventually the paint just rolled out.

I got the nelson paint on sale for $104 shipped for 12000 paintballs. that is less than a penny each. My 12 grams are 45 cents so that is about .0057 cents per shot for 80 good shots.

It was a fun evening .
