Magnum Research Big Frame Revolvers (BFR)


Magnum Research Upgrades Popular BFR Series

Magnum Research (MRI) has always counted the BFR (Big Frame Revolver) series among its many success stories. It all began in 1999, when independent gunsmith/designer Jim Tertin, was approached by MRI to manufacture the new large caliber revolver for MRI. Tertin mastered the base pin design, firing pin, barrels, frame and cylinder, and fine-tuned the timing of all BFR revolvers, and then put it into production for Magnum Research. In 2005, Tertin sold the BFR design to MRI and was hired as Director of Manufacturing.
