Magnum Research bolsters its revolver offerings in the new year, adding the Biggest Finest Revolver in .500 Linebaugh to its inventory.

The big bore revolver comes in four models — a standard model with either a 7.5-inch or 5.5-inch barrel and a model offering Bisley grips with barrel sizes in either 7.5-inch or 5.5-inches.

Created in the mid-1980s by John Linebaugh, the .500 Linebaugh is considered the largest production handgun caliber. The .500 Linebaugh features a bullet diameter of .510-inches.

“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,” Magnum Research said in a news release. “The .500 Linebaugh has a bullet diameter of .510″ as compared to only .500-inches for other .50 caliber rounds, excluding the .50 BMG.”

The standard model BFR is priced at $1,399 while the Bisley grip equipped models start at $1,482. The BFR can be nabbed through local firearms dealers.
