Rare Magnum Research 445 Super Mag.

(5832)(Sheeran) Serial number JT10463.  This rare precision fitted Magnum Research model BFR comes in “one of a kind” .445 Super Magnum caliber. According to the folks at Magnum Research they only made one BFR in .445 Super Magnum caliber so this is the rarest of the rare revolvers to leave the Magnum Research factory.  The finish is exquisite brushed stainless steel gun.  The barrel is 6 1/2″ with an eleven degree crown.  The custom fitted grips were made by Hogue and are  polished Black Micarta. It appears they used the same extra long cylinder as they use in their revolvers chambered for 45 Colt and 410 gauge shotgun shells, but this special made, one of a kind, five shot revolver is for the .445 Super Mag only.  The trigger is a crisp 3 1/2 pounds and the total weight of this exceptional piece is right at 4 pounds 8 ounces.

Included in this unique package is the original invoice showing the Portland, Or owner paid $1,800.01 for this beauty and appears he never fired it. Also included is a custom zippered soft case and scope base matched to the scope mounting hole in the frame. If you are a collector of rare, one of a kind revolvers or need something well outside the ordinary to add to your Magnum Research collection this should get your attention.
