Beautiful handgun, functions perfectly, feels good, and great accuracy/repeat-ability. After order, item was received in only 2-3 days at my ffl, so an overall amazing transaction.

wow went out to range in Hawaii to break it in,,, was firing at target 45 feet away and deadly accurate , blew out the center of the target, had gun club member filming this when stopping to reload after 35 rounds, a 7 inch diameter tree 25 feet high went over behind the target in the woods,,,, so my first kill with this was caught on tape,,,,, gotta love the 45-70,,,, got comfortable with this and now can shoot one handed, the fit and finish are just mind blowing,,, if you like power than this is for you,,,,, buds excellent service is simply the icing on the cake,,, gotta love them as well mahalo from hawaii

What an awesome gun! Very beautiful and built like a tank. Very accurate. Recoil isn't bad. I have the Magnum Research BFR in .454 Casull that is Magnum Ported, and this 45/70 is much tamer. I love this BFR. I can't wait until this November - going to lay me a big Ohio buck on the ground.
Buy this gun and you will be glad you did!

First of all, this is the kind of pistol you'd have out cleaning if your daughter's new flame stopped at your house to take her out on a date. This is because it has both comic value and intimidation factor. Second of all, it has "the feel" of precise and elaborate workmanship throughout. It both locks up and feels as solid as something that has just came out of a custom shop. And third, it has accuracy. I have many hits at 100-plus yards with hand-loads, namely 500-grain powder-coated hand-loads. It will hold up to +P ammo well, add being adequately built for it, as the HSM 430's work quite nicely. I would, however, shoot those with gloves on, as I still have a stone bruise on the swell of my palm.

Furthermore, upon unboxing, you will find that the gun has both front and rear Ruger sights on it, as installed by factory. So when you hold it in your hands for the first time, you will know that they did at least one thing right. Then, the grip will feel both firm and spongy at the same time, and this is for a good reason. The grip will feel very firm when the whip-snap of the 300-grainers exit stage left, yet it will feel very forgiving when you hot-load those 500-grain missiles to what a good Marlin can endure.

The gun itself? It's beautiful...Polished stainless steel on a matte black grip? Can't beat that combination...

The experience? It's awesome...you're shooting an old-timer's round in a revolver and what can be better than that?

Go buy one of these and you'll never be disappointed in aesthetics or performance. This is a tool created by Magnum Research to satisfy both the curious mind and the serious explorer. So, as a curious explorer, I give this ghastly beast a 10/10 in all aspects. I literally have nothing bad to say about it. Go buy one. Now.

Great gun, shoots well and is built good. Definitely noticeable recoil but with heavier 405 grain rounds is very easily controlled. Great service from Bud's as well.
