Magnum Research announced the roll out of their latest offering their newest big bore revolver chambered in .500 Linebaugh. Currently Magnum Research is offering these .500 Linebaugh BFR revolers in four different configurations. The standard model with a 7.5 inch barrel (BFR500LB7) or 5.5 inch barrel (BFR500LB5), and the standard model featuring Bisley grips with a 7.5 inch barrel (BFR500LB7B) or a 5.5 inch barrel (BFR500LB5B)
Magnum Research states “Magnum Research is pleased to bring another quality option to big bore revolver fans. The .500 Linebaugh was created in 1986 by John Linebaugh and is the largest production handgun caliber. What better pairing for Magnum Research’s “Biggest Finest Revolver” than the biggest handgun caliber? While a few companies offer the .500 Linebaugh as a full custom piece, Magnum Research is the only one to offer this caliber in a production revolver. The .500 Linebaugh has a bullet diameter of .510″ as compared to only .500″ for other .50 caliber rounds, excluding the .50 BMG.
Magnum Research’s BFR (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.”
