Man I love this pistol, brought it to the range with my dad and had a few guys come up asking about it and took pictures of it in amazement. It really is a huge beautiful revolver. It does have a good amount of muzzle rise and recoil, but it’s very manageable when you put your left hand on top of your shooting hand for more support. I am going to try it one handed next time lol. I was shooting 300 grain 45-70 Winchester ammo. It’s very accurate, I was only shooting at 10 yards, I’ll have to try further out next time. It comes with a rail you can attach on top of you wanted to add a scope. Love this pistol, you can tell it’s a very high quality revolver that’ll last forever. It’s going as my back up on my wife’s and my eventual bear hunt in Montana.

Outstanding firearm! This is as close to the all-around hunting revolver as any I've used in 50 years. Using loads that are intended for a trapdoor rifle, this is a pleasure to shoot with more of a heavy push than a slap. The revolver will handle (according to the manufacturer's literature) loads that are suitable for the Marlin 1895 rifle. This type of load will handle anything that walks or crawls and gives ballistics on par or better than the .500 S&W at a lower cost. One of the best purchases I have ever made, but definitely not an everyday carry revolver.

Beautiful gun and well made. It has lots of recoil but I was expecting that. It is the best BFR (big frame revolver) I own. I have ordered another gun, the Ruger Super Redhawk in 10mm) because of the excellent quality and great buying experience!!

Super comfortable despite how it looks, very reliable and ammo is sold in most stores. And gotta love the light trigger making it a bit easier for tight groupings

This review is long overdue (purchased in September). This is my 1st single action revolver, I've never shot the 45-70 gov't round before, but what I heard it kicks bad out of a repeating rifle. I shot 325 grain Leverevolution ammo wasn't that bad. It had a kick, but I was actually expecting more. The gun is accurate and the trigger is crisp (single action it should be). Gun came with a mount which was a pleasant surprise, gun is already tapped and drilled. I will be placing a scope on it in the future. The grip felt comfortable in my hands, my hands are big. It wouldn't be a problem for those with medium-sized hands as well. The grips are rubber so I'm sure that helped with the kick, I might get it chromed out. I am definitely happy with the purchase, will eventually get a repeating rifle in same caliber. Quick note: Not all ammo in 45-70 can be shot out of this gun. Check the box, it will say "For rifles only" if it cant be shot. Hornady is a no go, luckily my local gunshop allowed me to exchange it out since I bought the ammo from them a few weeks before I bought the gun.

Very impressive revolver! I ordered a 450 Marlin cylinder to go with this and I also reload the 45-70 ammo to the higher pressures for lever action specifications. This handgun came with a scope base and adding a scope helps control the recoil - still a handful. Definitely a capable hunting weapon.

Bud's was very simple to work with. Choose your item, select your payment, select your favorite FFL dealer and they ship it straight to them. Yes, it's that simple! I chose the 90 day layaway plan and they received my final payment on Friday, I had my item on Tuesday. Thank you Bud's and thank you Magnum Research for building such quality weapons in your BFR line. I ordered the BFR 45-70 10 inch barrel. It is amazing. I'm hoping to bag a T-rex and a velicoraptor in my first dino hunt!😁😉
