I have also been bitten by the 10 inch F.A. bug!I pick up my new 10" .454 monday or tuesday, it takes 13 or 14 days now for the Ca. DOJ to process the background check because firearm sales megadrupled the last two months or so.

Is this the "Grail Gun" in the article of American Handgunner? Great article and congratulations on your successes. Many more to come I am sure!

It is the Grail gun in the article. It's off to Rob Rowen for dall sheep grips - with a dall ram I took, making it more special for me. Thanks!

And the grips take up less room than taxidermy while still keeping the memory of the trophy fresh! Since this the Grail Gun, it also requires American Bison grips, Alaskan Moose grips, Antelope horn grips, and on and on..... Best of luck to you!

Good Shooting Mark!,

A ten incher is on my wish list.

I noticed it looks like yours is Magna-ported. Whats your opinion with Magna-ports having used them? like anything else you read reviews on the internet and there are a lot of opinions, but folks with real world experince trump internet opinions!

PS just bought your book Handgun Hunting: How to Travel the World in pursute of wild game. Good Read!

ALL 5 OF MY FA MODEL 83 454's ARE MNP'ed, I REALLY THINK IT HELPS.

BBWheelgunner, Glad you enjoyed the book. I've written two since that first one -- Addicted to Altitude and Handguns in Wild Places.

Regarding Mag-Na-Port, lately I've been shooting the dual-trapezoidal porting on revolvers. I believe it does reduce some of the muzzle rise. Perhaps not as much on felt recoil but overall - I do feel it helps. I have a FA in .41 & .44 Mag. and both have Mag-Na-Port dual trapezoidal porting. You can shoot both of these guns all day without issue.
