The Big Frame Revolver, or BFR, is a Single-Action Revolver produced by Magnum Research.[1]

The BFR is sometimes used for hunting due to the high caliber options and accuracy of the weapon. The .45 LC/.410 Bore model of the BFR is sometimes used for self-defense because it can fire .410 bore shotgun shells and .45 Long Colt ammunition without needing to modify the weapon at all. The BFR also has an optional rail to attach scopes or other optics to.
