Five years ago, we reported that Wildey Guns, makers of the famous Wildey magnum automatic pistol featured in films like Death Wish and Robocop 3, had ceased operations due to the ailing health of their founder, Wildey Moore. Well, Moore is feeling better, and Wildey Guns is back! George Benedict of USA Firearms Corp, Wildey Guns’ parent company, writes:

I am writing this in regard to a post you made a while back when Wildey FA shut down operations due to health issues that Wildey Moore experienced. Wil has made a strong recovery and now it is time to bring the Wildey Survivor back.
You are amongst the first to learn that “Wildey is Back”. USA Firearms Corp in Winsted Connecticut is resurrecting the fabled Wildey Survivor along with making parts and ammo available. Wildey Moore is staying on as our Senior Designer and consultant. We are in the midst of upgrading the website, but please feel free to contact us through the website www.WildeyGuns.com or through our Facebook page at Facebook.com/wildeyparts.

For those of our readers who’ve always wanted a brand-new Wildey pistol, this is excellent news!

    A firearm searching for a mission.
    Hunting big and dangerous African game with a handgun?
    Polar bear medicine?
    Short Range anti mechanized warfare?
    All of the above.

    And was the most POWERFULL handgun in the world - for about a week! HA! Seems like others like the .454 Casull hogged the limelight away.

    Anybody got a link to a ballistics chart comparing all those big bore handgun loads?
