Magnum Research BFR

A big, fine revolver if there ever was one, the Magnum Research BFR provides power and versatility in a 100 percent made in the United States package.

Based in Minnesota, Magnum Research is known for making the popular Desert Eagle available to American shooters, and has imported the IMI/IWI brand of pistols under the Baby Desert Eagle name.

Looks like the old colt .44, except... BIGGER

Comments about the bottleneck cartridge vs. revolver issue may date to the .256 Winchester and the Ruger Hawkeye, about 50 years back. Not that the Hawkeye was a revolver--it only looked that way. But at the time there were some comments about the .256 round requiring a really tight and well-supported lock-up, which, perhaps, the Ruger single-shot did not provide as well as necessary. Maybe the .256, a .357 Mag necked to .25, was the first bottlenecked, factory handgun cartridge offered in a mass-produced handgun. So its behavior drew much attention then.

prefer S&W 500 magnum- single/double action, also has tranfer bar, also weighs about 5 lbs (empty), a slightly shorter barrel and grip, and 500 mag M.E. maxes out at ~ 1.5x that of a 30-30

What a beautiful piece, would make a nice back up to my 30/30 lever gun, and no bottlenecks would give no issue in a revolver, why would it? a 30/30 revolver has been around for some years..

I was under the impression that bottlenecked cartridges were notoriously problematic in revolvers. That and 5.3lb?

Jerry, what's the issue with a transfer bar?

This revolver in .30-30 is very cool to shoot. It has plenty of pep, but not the bone crunching recoil of some monster revolvers. This gun is nice and accurate too.

It looked very interesting until "Transfer bar" was mentioned. Not Interested.
