Thanks to all who put on our annual National shoot. Jenny and I were the last to leave, and we definitely
did not dodge the weather. Hours of thunder and lightning, 3 1/2" of rain, very restless night in a wall
tent. One we will remember!!!  It's a very good thing we were done shooting, because Sunday would have
been a mess.

The Longbranch / Mike Venturino info from another site

I am not the originator of this information but I thought it belonged over here on this site also, for all of us COWBOY shooters, to know.
The following text was posted by 'Shrapnel' over on the Levergun Website.  I believe this is the same person that often posts over here, too.

Here is his text:
"Mike is gone now, Yvonne texted me he is at peace. It has been a restless couple weeks hoping and praying for medical assistance to get him back on track.

This time it just wasn’t meant to be. He left the world a better place and I can testify to his great personality and truthful writing on many subjects.

I will miss our conversations and stories…"

His post was entered on this day June 9, 2024.

S&W did make a Schofield but that was back in 2000. I have one and am going to sell it because it is impossible to shoot with black powder. If you're asking about something new S&W is doing then my apologies for thread drift.

I guess I'm late to this party.  Was dealing with estate issues when it first came around.  The comment about the cylinder being hard to push onto the arbor  at the end and then it pops into place, that sounds like you did not have the gun on half-cock and the bolt head was pushing against the cylinder. 

As for your son picking up the revolver, I do not know.  Possibly he can give it to your son as your proxy with your permission or it may be that you need to give the gunsmith permission to transfer the gun to your son, which would require him to fill out a 4473.   I would call the FFL and ask him, before your surgery.

Best of luck to you healthwise and gunwise.

That was my thinking with the problem with the gun.  The cylinder was too low in the frame causing that pop and so low the bolt would not drop far enough before the cylinder started rotating.  The cylinder is lower in the frame than any other revolver I own.  They said when I called they have ordered and new cylinder, barrel, and hammer. 

My son and I are going shooting tomorrow and will stop by and ask what we need to do.  I thought about maybe just a bill of sale as Kansas law permits private sales without federal approval.  Then the gunsmith most likely will charge and do federal paperwork if I am not alive to pick up the revolver.
I bought a .45 Colt cylinder from VTI that does not work like yours does not work

was at the NE Antique Arms show in Sturbridge Mass and the guy at the Smith and Wesson table was saying that S&W is making Schofield's through their Heritage Series...Is this true?? I think not...Don Mundell was away from the table at the time.

nice show, but very high prices..
