  • WOW, NOW, It's HERE, the ULTIMATE.

    A BFR revolver chambered in 30-30.

    It will probably outshoot your Mdl 94 or you 336 Marlin. You can carry them both, and use your ammo interchangeably.

    I thought that bottle neck cartridges didn't work well in revolvers.

    Sweet, I wonder.......they must have machined a shoulder into the cylinder or the jump to the lands would be a crapshoot.

        That grip is way too small.

          I like having one round in both my sidearm and long arm. How short a barrel will they put on the BFR in 45-70?

            I'm not sure whatchewmean.

            I dunno, If the cylinder is way long, (and I don't know if it is) it could have a very long throat. ???

              Can probably get Hogue Rubber Grips for a BFR.

                Monn, with that long barrel, you don't need no Steenkeen "long arm".

                Besides a short barrel would ru'in the Stream Lined appearance. Bars would take one look and run off, refusing to fight.

                  7.5 inches and I want one but it ain't a thousand dollars worth of want.

                    Well I guess, no-one gets too excited about the Venerable old Thirdy - Thirddy anymore, even in a REVOLVER.

                    If I was truly interested in owning a revolver chambered in 30-30, I would check with BFR to find out how they handled the problem inherent with bottle-neck cartridges in a REVOLVER.

                    It is my understanding that the shoulder tends to move forward and push the case back firmly against the back plate, and lock up the cylinder. I dunno, maybe the 30-30 cartridge has sufficient length for the sides to stick well enough to hold the case in place.

                    Jist Speculatin. Surely, a Grand Ole Cartridge like 30-30 deserves at least that.

                      Do you want one for the Uniqueinonosity, or for some practical purpose, like blowing Cats and Coyotees away?

                      I remember "Way back when" these 45-70 revolvers came out. I almost went into SHOCK at the thought of it. I figgered there would NEVER be a Revolver more powerful than that, AND, that they would never last because of the impracticality of the idea.

                      BUT, NOW, look at the plethora of beeg, and POWERFUL cartridges available in revolvers. Clearly, I have been ignored.

                        AS I recall there were lots of bottlenecks in handguns. 38-40, 44-40,25-20, 32-20 and there was one of the newer centerfires that S&W used to put in a revolver.

                          A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and donít have one, youíll probably never need one again

                            Correct but they can give fits too, especially higher pressure ones with a sharp shoulder. 30-30 is a soft shoulder angle with moderate pressure so Iíd think it would be okay . . . ballistics are likely about like Blackhawk 30 Carbine tho.

                              Those are all OLD Black Powder cartridges, with low pressures by today's standards, and with minimal shoulders, or practically none at all, excepting for the 25-20. Was the 25-20 chambered in a revolver? Originally?

                              It is my understanding that the 22 Jet, and the 256 Win Magnum were problematic in revolvers. (Because of the Bottle-Neck design.)
