Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. As someone who had to endurance test and and qualify production runs for big bore revolvers, not just “nope” but “hell no!”
    I’m pretty sure the 454 Casull hunting revolvers, 20-something ounce .44 Magnums, and J-Frame sized 357 Magnums with parking lot gravel textured grips made my hands and wrists a solid 15-20 years older than the age on my drivers license. Anyone who buys this is a true masochist.

  2. Well, it is Magnum Research. There line of BFRs already have several rifle calibers available, including a .45/70, although they were long barrel revolvers (10″/7.5″)
    I have to agree, this is just a stupid application. Why? Because we could. If you want to spend your money, great, but anyone who thinks this is a reasonable revolver for use is not thinking…

  3. Some time ago I purchased a Mosin-Nagant in 7.62x54R. I was told it kicked hard. Big bolt action with steel butt plate. I had fun shooting it. It wasn’t bad shooting.
    I was told that a 12 gauge kicked like a mule. I didn’t find it uncomfortable.
    I fired .45-70 Government from a trapdoor Springfield. It was fun. No real kick. My kid thought it kicked a bit but still loves her gun.
    I fired .45-70 Government through a Henry Big Boy. That was fun. Rubber pad on the back was all the mitigation I felt it needed.
    I fired .45-70 +P through that same Big Boy. Wow. That shoved me back. Knocked the plate off the chain.
    There is no way I’m putting a .45-70 in my hand and pressing the trigger. I’d rather have something a little smaller.

  4. Notice that the revolver was deliberately lightened 😀

    Someone said:
    “The recoil is not punishing enough – make it LIGHTER!”

    I once shot a .50 BMG “pistol” – but this thing? Nope.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
