Uberti Schofield Question

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a brace of 7" Uberti Schofields, one is very smooth the other one binds quite a bit when cocking it.

It cocks smoothly when open and the cylinder rotates freely when opened, the minute I close it it binds, there is good clearance on the cylinder face, I think it may be the rod binding, it is well lubricated.

 

Any ideas??

My dad has a pair and one started binding periodically. Had a smith look at it and he found some small burs in the works and that the bolt was dropping just a hair late and catching the cylinder as it started to rotate. He smoothed out the burs and put a slight bevel on the side of the bolt to let the cylinder ride over it and that sovled the problem.

After extensive evaluation and a comperative study with the one that was not binding, it appears there were several issues, rather than overwhelm myself I worked on it over a period of days.

 

The hand needed to be reshaped slightly and fitted.

The bolt or stop needed to be reshaped and polished.

I touched up the extractor a little.

A few burs here and there needed to be removed and a little polishing done.

A little lubrication

 

And it seems to be working just fine now!!!!
