Never heard of it. Stuff the regular one with all the Pyrodex P you can seat a 255 gr. boolit on and you'll have plenty to try to hang on to. I can't see a need for all the room in that one. DALE

I've never seen nor heard of one either. Is it yours or did you come upon the photo in your cyber travels? (If that was a photoshopped pic, it was a really good job.) Seems like it must have been a custom creation. It reminds me of one of those .45-70 revolvers that came out some years back. I think I would pass on firing it, but might be persuaded to take a photo or two as the shooter embedded the front sight in his forehead under recoil. :mrgreen:

The pics appeared on a couple of European boards; it was apparently a custom job by FMR in France circa 1993-1996 (some articles in local gun mags were dug up by members). This explains why we didn't hear about it here.

Powder load was 6 (or 8 :???:!?) grams ... (92 or 123gr...).

I wonder how the round balls did with such a load.... the gun is pretty much an all or nothing purpose. I would have stayed with the Walker's cylinder length; but then it wouldn't have been the most powerful (black powder) revolver in the world :mrgreen:.

Thanks. I love to look at guns that I do not like, want or need.
