The outlaw Jesse James needs little introduction in the United States. The Civil War bushwhacker and guerilla continued his lawless ways after the bloody conflict, and became a nationally known robber of trains, banks, stages, and more. Together with his brother Frank, they lead the James-Younger Gang to a limelight that even their brutal murders couldn’t dim.
Many guns throughout the years have been claimed to have been that of Jesse James, but few with any sort of historical backing. This Smith and Wesson First Model Schofield revolver brings with it a trio of supports that together make an excellent case that this revolver was once used by the James Gang with a strong likelihood that it was carried by Jesse himself.
