For those who may never have heard of the SHOT Show (Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade) it is the largest gun show in the world. Unfortunately, because it is a trade show, it is not open to the public. That does not mean you will not have a front row seat at The Shooter’s Log. We have been busy running from booth to booth to discover what’s new in Pistols, Rifles, Shotguns, Airguns, Accessories, and Optics.
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.

There continues to be new introductions into the 1911 market. Without good quality, at an affordable price point, a new 1911 will fail to sell. One priced mid-range without cutting corners on quality is the Magnum Research Desert Eagle 1911 Commander. The 1911C is built to strict standards and nothing we can see contradicts that statement. Shooting a variety of cheap .45 ACP ammo to the best in self-defense jacketed hollow points, the Desert Eagle 1911 Commander is worthy of going into anyone’s arsenal.
