Magnum Research BFR Precision Center


The famous BFR is available in one-of-a-kind unique calibers and configurations and as always two frame sizes. These are built to order per your request. Discriminating hunters, shooters and collectors can have their own BFR “built to order” with reasonable quick turnaround time on most requests. Most precision center guns can be shipped in about 4 weeks or less from the time the order is placed and your deposit received.

Precision Center BFR single action 5 shot revolvers start life with our own super strong magnum frames, grip frames and cylinders. They 100% made in the United States with American steel and components. They are designed with accuracy, durability and safety as design constraints. To that end all Precision Center guns are hand polished and assembled using the finest cut rifled barrels and assembly techniques developed by Magnum Research one at a time. Each one undergoes two dozen checks and inspections during its production.

The actions on Precision Center guns are hand honed and polished for the custom gun feel and function. They feature deep cut caliber engraving on the frame, less than .002” barrel cylinder gap and precise chamber – barrel alignment. We achieve this alignment by using a proprietary process developed in our shop using hard gauges during the action fitting process that keeps barrel cylinder alignment at under .001 TIR! It is better than the old and proven “line boring” method. They come to you with stock soft rubber grips and a round barrel unless you specify some other configuration that we offer. They feature a 2.5 to 3 pound trigger pull with minimum creep. With cylinder lengths of 3.060 on the long frame and 1.903 on the short frame many calibers can be chambered. Additionally some calibers that use the same bullet diameters can be dual cylindered.

All Precision Center guns are shipped with our own one-piece scope mount base and are tapped accordingly. The BFR scope mount is machined from a solid block of aluminum it is not an extrusion. They are anodized sliver to match the brushed finish gun itself. Our scope mounts have a recoil lug on the rear of them that helps hold everything in place under the recoil of the large calibers we chamber for. All mounting screws are supplied.

Precision Center guns can be ordered in our production calibers and configurations simply if you want the best and a super smooth action. They can also be ordered in nearly any configuration you want. Options such as octagon barrels, fluted barrels, fluted cylinders, special engravings or initials, special calibers, Micarta grips, and re-shaped or slimmed down grips frames are all possible. Turn around times is quick and ordering a Precision Center gun is simple.


Here are some calibers we have experience with and have already manufactured Precision Center BFR revolvers for:

.50 Beowulf

Plus many other calibers available on your request.
Note: cartridges like the 7.62x39 provide unsafe or poor performance. Generally speaking bottleneck rimless cases will set back and not allow the cylinder to rotate freely. Additionally some military calibers have a huge variety of ammo currently available, some with steel cases and corrosive primers that provide poor function or require extreme measures of care to maintain the quality of the BFR revolver.

Any of these options may be retrofitted to an existing BFR that you already own. Pricing is slightly higher on retrofitting because we have to take it apart, modify it and re-assemble it. Where as on new orders the work is completed in conjunction with building the gun.

Magnum Research’s Precision Center can build the BFR into nearly anything that will not compromise the safety of the gun itself. Please contact us with your requests and ideas at:
