Frame :
The BFR single action 5-shot stainless steel revolver frames are CNC machined inside and out from a "pre-heat treated" investment casting. This is done to prevent warping and dimensional changes or shifting that occurs during the heat treat process. The result is a dimensionally perfect-machined frame. Magnum Research designed the frame with large calibers and large recoil in mind. It is thicker in the front yoke and bottom and top strap than conventional single actions. The front of the frame has no base pin plunger or holes to weaken it. Both long and short frames are machined to accept Magnum's own scope base included with the revolver.
Grip Frame :
The BFR grip frame is also CNC machine from an investment casting. It is one-piece stainless steel. It features a large trigger loop that is rounded in the back so it will not "bite" you with heavy recoiling calibers. The grip shape is similar to traditional single action revolvers and fills the hand nicely to help manage recoil.
Cylinder :
CNC machined from heat-treated bar stock. BFR cylinders are extremely tough and accurate. Magnum has developed a proprietary process to drill and ream the chambers that insures perfect bore and cylinder alignment every time. Cartridge rims are countersunk into the rear of the cylinder on all calibers.
Barrel :
BFR barrels on all production guns are stainless steel, round and un-tapered. Lengths are from 6.5-inches to 10-inches depending on caliber. They are deep cut rifled and the actual steel is re-sulferized and stress relieved. The plus here is an extremely consistent twist rate, internal dimension and finish. Bottom line is they shoot well and are easy to keep clean. They shoot lead bullets very well also.
