Now part of the Kahr Firearms Group along with other lines such as Thompson and Auto-Ordnance, Magnum Research was established in 1980 in Minnesota, and the company's best-known product, the Desert Eagle, began factory production in 1984 with serial number 3,001. Fast forward over 35 years later and the "Deagle" remains the company's most popular firearm.
Originally brainstormed in 2000 by inventor Jim Tertin as Baxter's First Revolver, as at the time his 900 sq. ft. shop was in Baxter, Minnesota, today's BFR is known as the Biggest Finest Revolver or the Big Frame Revolver. No matter what you want to call it, this large single-action revolver is impressive.
Magnum Research also makes a series of fine Magnum Lite .22 rimfire rifles. Designed and entirely manufactured in the United States, at the heart of the rifle is its one-piece forged 6061T6 receiver that utilizes an integral Picatinny rail and has a hard-coat anodized finish for durability and wear. It is equipped with the patented graphite bull barrel, which features unidirectional graphite fibers and is full-floating with an 11-degree muzzle crown for maximum accuracy.
