Smith & Wesson reviving the Schofield revolver. Norinco bringing out a replica 1897 Winchester Pump shotgun. Anyone else hear these rumors?

Haven't heard those but a couple of years ago TriStar (Chinese-Norinco?) was going to make Win 1887 lever 12 gauges. Saw a couple of writeups in the gun rags and that was the last I remember hearing. :(

Not as bad as the news of Colt trying to buy H&K. Then plans to phase out H&K US Sales!!

I hae heard rumors that an Italian company may bring out a replica of the Colt Model 1878 revolver in .45 Colt and .44-40WCF, However the 1878 was a double action so I suooise they would not be llkowde in CAS matches.

I've been blasted on the wire before about this. But I kinda think the Omnipotent looks like an 1878 Colt but in SA. I guess we will know about new models after the SHOT SHOW? Anyone here going to that?
