I'm intrigued by that .44 Special version. It would make a fun pairing with my .44 1860 conversion. Fire .44 Colt out of both of them. I'm desperately hoping that the American Model can handle BP better than the Schofield.

Mike Harvey has been wanting Uberti to make it for a good while.  He owns Texas Jack Omohundro's American.  I wouldn't hold my breath on it being able to shoot BP (  :( ) but maybe???

I could dream  ;D Oh well, I'll have to wait on it for a good while anyway. Hope you all who are able to get them enjoy them! I'm very excited for you all!

Being a sucker for Schofields and any S&W breaktops I'll have to get one in .45 with the 8" bbl.  Or two.

But will it function with black powder or clog up after a cylinder? Inquiring minds want to know!

I'd rather have a New Model 3 in .44 Russian &/or .44-40;  But I guess I'll have to get an American.
(If they ever really produce one.)

Cimarron's view of "coming soon" ...is different that of reasonable people ...

I offer the little Colt pocket model in .380 that been announced " coming soon " for about 14 months  ..

I recall, the Richards Type II in 07 ....60 more days I was told about 5 times = 300 days it was two years by the time I got one and that was from another source !


I have a #3 and an original Russian ...I may get a 1st. model but I'm not holding my breath

my feeling is it won't happen while I'm still young   :-\

This is great news! If had in 44 Russian you could call it a First Model Russian like Major 2 implied. Either way it was much more common than the schofield on the frontier. This makes my day, way to go Cimarron! Cheers!

The image shown in the add looks very good.
But, I'm just going to have to wait until they actually come out with one in two to four years from now.
I have an original #3 1ST Model Russian ("Old Old Model Russian", as they were called by 1877). I would like to see how the new and the old in this variation compare with each other. I would hope the Italians do a better job making these than they did with their modification of the #3, 3rd. Model Russian into the "New Model" Russians. (Too much of the #3, 3rd Mod. remains in their New Mod.)
These things are going to be expensive! But, If the Italians do their homework well, they will be worth it.

  I'm not all that familiar with this model of revolver, but in their ad, the latch looks different to me than on their similar models.

Only video I can think of for the model 3 american, is midway usa's video on reloading some .44 american cartridges. The latch was improved upon by the Russians (I think) and Schofield, his latch system being why that certain model 3 was called a Schofield. I think it would be interesting to see the American model be compared with the rest of the model 3 line.

Cliff,

The .44 S&W "American" cartridge is not listed. So, this variation should not be called a S&W "American" revolver!
.44 Russian is the most correct cartridge caliber for this variation. .44 Special would be next, but then you could shot Russian or .44 Special ammo in it.
This suggestion on my part is only if you wish to maintain any form of Historical Authenticity

If I got it (not likely after the recent home repairs), I'd follow Blair's advice and go the .44 Special route. Shoot either .44 Russian or modern .44 Colt out of it. It's a fun caliber, and the .44 Russian is the closest to authentic that you can get. Just my 2 cents.

I was sort of thinking 44 special for the reasons you mention but also wondered about the 44-40, was the model 3 not available in 44-40 at one time or was that a different variation of it? I'm sure I've seen original chambered in 44-40
