Magnum Research @ TFB:
Here is the description of the 20th Anniversary BFR revolver quoted from the company’s website:
For 20 years the Magnum Research BFR has represented the finest quality single-action revolver on the market. The BFR combines expert craftsmanship with precision engineering, delivering unrivaled accuracy and strength. It is without question the pinnacle of revolver design. Each hand crafted 20th Anniversary BFR is uniquely numbered, with only 20 pistols to ever be produced. Staying true to its roots, this custom gun is based on a .45-70 Government long frame model, the first production caliber. A full Octagon barrel is added with a custom E-Rod Housing and basepin. Plow style white polymer grips are hand fitted for a great look and feel. Exterior surfaces are engraved with elegant scrollwork by the artists at Tyler Gun Works. The 20th Anniversary BFR is truly a unique and timeless work of art. Each pistol ships in a beautiful wood case, and a signed letter of authenticity.
As expected, being a limited edition custom gun, this revolver has a price way higher than its standard counterparts. The price of the 20th Anniversary BFR revolver is $7,200. For comparison, a long-barreled BFR chambered in .45-70 Government with standard features and no extra parts will cost you $1,519.
