Funds are VERY tight at the moment, but I should have some mad money in the next month or two.

All depends on if I build a deck and garage this year. I'm thinking the gun is more important. It would look nice beside my 45-70 bfr as well.

That was in the early days of the BFR, Rey!

I think BFRs are the absolute best bang for the buck. They keep m
aking significant refinements to these great revolvers.


MAX: BIG F.....G REVOLVER WAS NOT A USED AS A SLIGHT TO THE BFR, IT WAS MORE A REFERENCE TO THE THEN NEW STRETCH FRAME 30-30, 45-70 TYPE REVOLVERS, AND WAS A TERM USED BY ONE OR MORE MAGNUM RESEARCH HONCHOS. IF I WAS JUST STARTING INTO BIB BORE REVOLVER HUNTING I WOULD PROBABLY HAVE A BUNCH OF BFR's.

I know that Rey. That was the term they used back in the D-Max days. I have one of the early ones.

Just received the official press release via email
I was glad to see this will be offered as a production revolver.

Magnum Research Introduces .500 Linebaugh BFR

(Pillager, MN) - Magnum Research, Inc, maker of the world renowned Desert Eagle pistol and leader in innovative firearms design and manufacturing, is proud to introduce the .500 Linebaugh BFR.
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.
Max Prasac, an outdoor writer, author and big-game handgun hunter, recently had the opportunity to test a prototype. "Up until now, the .500 Linebaugh was a custom proposition only, costing thousands of dollars and long wait times," says Prasac. "Now you can have one at a fraction of the price of a highend custom, that will scratch your .50 caliber itch. I had the pleasure of testing the first prototype, and as I have come to expect from Magnum Research, it failed to disappoint. Leave it to Magnum Research to give big-bore revolver lovers exactly what they want!"
The .500 Linebaugh BFR is available in four configurations. The standard model with a 7.5 inch barrel (BFR500LB7) or 5.5 inch barrel (BFR500LB5) has an MSRP of $1399, and the standard model featuring Bisley grips with a 7.5 inch barrel (BFR500LB7B) or a 5.5 inch barrel (BFR500LB5B) has an MSRP of $1482. Contact your local firearms dealer to purchase today.

I first heard the phrase "Biggest Finest Revolver" from Jim Skildum then president of Magnum Research during one of the old NAHHC handgun hunts at the YO Ranch. This was prior to the introduction of the new BFR frame sometime in the early nineties, or thereabouts.
