Odd Gun: Wildey Magnum

Actually handled one of these in a local shop, and they feel vastly better in the hand than a Desert Eagle. Its still a football bat of a gun!

    As cool as it is, it’s still not as cool as a .44 Automag. {chuckle}

      I dunno, if I had to pick a true Magnum Pistol, I’d go with the Coonan, its the only one that doesn’t feel like a boat anchor. I still need to get my hands on a .460 Rowland pistol, but that looks more like a gun made of hopes and dreams.

      I think I’ll just stick with Revolvers when it comes to tossing over-powered bullets from small packages.

    If you really like powerful revolvers, you should keep your eyes open for an old Century Gun Distributors model 100. A single-action six shot with barrels ranging from 6.5 to 14 inches, it was offered in 45-70, 444 Marlin, 30-30, 375 Winchester, and 50-70. Ugly as all get-out, but I’m sure it’d get your attention.

    It’s probably easier to find a S&W X-frame in 460 or 500. Those are still too “exciting” for me. I’ll stick with an N-frame or a lever gun chambered in .44 magnum. (with MY reloads)

      Never much cared for SA Wheelies. Probably the most likely magnum hand-gun of any type will be a Ruger Alaskan in .454 Casull.

      I’ve shot lots of X-Frame Smiths, and they’re fun as hell (in small doses…I made the mistake of firing 15 very-hot handloads in one session. I felt fine…untill the next morning when I woke up with THE CLAWWWW!! For a right hand.

      The Alaskan seems to be the best combination of size, power, capacity, and usability for my personal preference level. Plus I personally think the .454 Casull is the sexiest magnum cartridge around just because.
