    Bipod on a revolver. Now I’ve seen everything.

    Leaper’s??? Seriously!? Cheap Chinese Crap on something like that?

  • Woodroez

    The specimen in your first and last photos of this post are .44 magnum, Steve. And a handsome one at that. Nice photos!

    I have a bit of experience with both the .460 and the .500 S&W offerings from when I worked in a gun store and we would have demonstrations… The .500 is an absolute blast (pun intended) to shoot. The .460 is one of the very few rounds that I never wish to shoot again. The powder charge is such and the velocity so high that the damned thing hurts to shoot even in a rifle (Thompson Center in my case). The .500 is noticeably slower on the recoil and can be shot all day if you’re rich enough. I was done with the .460 after 5 shots. I am not usually recoil sensitive at all, but Goddamn! The true value of the .460 comes from the ability to run .45 Colt and .454 Cassull, though. Still… the triggers on those big smiths were nice!

    Not a doctor, not legal advice, YMMV, and all that.

    Oh, and that bipod is on the gun by way of an accessory rail, so you can eschew that bipod in favor of a flashlight or laser. You know, in case you need an HD solution for scenarios involving a T-Rex.

    The ginormous revolvers do nothing for me, but someone must be buying them because Taurus and S&W have about 50 models between them.

    Bipods on pistols are hardly new…I remember seeing them on T/C Contenders back in the 90s.

  • El Duderino

    Wonder what the BATFE would say about that two-pronged forward handle on that pistol there 😀

  • Andrew

    Oh just put a stock on those already.

  • drewogatory

    Much much rather have a nice lever action in these calibers.

  • Tony

    Hey, something for the UK market, throw on a wrist brace and you’re golden

  • howlingcoyote

    When will some company made rifles in thses two cartridges? I know T/C has the Encore in 460 & 500 with 20′ barrels, would rather have a repeating rifle though.
    The 460 S&W is almost the same as the 45-70. Wouldn’t want to shoot that out of a short barreled handgun, I’d rather have a rifle in it.

    Have a 460 and it is a hoot to shoot! I am not a heavy weight, 5’10 at 160lb, the kick is hard but not bad. it pushes back not up. you can fire one hand if so inclined but had better have a strong grip!! would like to see a six or five inch barrel. not sure if you can get one. mine is a 8 3/8s
