Is it just me, or are handguns getting bigger and bigger as the decades go by? I remember when the Smith & Wesson Model 29 was the ‘big boy’ on the block, well apparently, those days are long gone and it seems to me, that everybody wants a ‘hand cannon’ that fires a miniature ballistic missile. I have to admit, the folks at Magnum Research have certainly upped the ante with this one. From what I can see, there’s a really good reason they call this monster the “T-Rex Pistol”!
Here is a little bit of info on Magnum Research and their Big Frame Revolvers from their website at www.magnumresearch.com:
Magnum Research’s Biggest Finest Revolver is truly the biggest, finest revolver on the market today. Entirely manufactured in the US and like the legendary Desert Eagle pistol it is designed as a magnum from the ground up. The BFR is all stainless and has a precision grade barrel that delivers unmatched accuracy with lead or jacketed bullets. The BFR is the most powerful production single action gun made and with 10 calibers and two frame sizes to choose from you can take everything from grouse to grizzly. Choose your chambering and frame size and have your favorite gun dealer locate one of the BFRs for you.
