This gun is an absolute monster. Pretty heavy recoil even with the weight of the Desert Eagle. Accuracy was impressive and the trigger on mine was very nice. No stacking, no creep just really smooth, and thats factory. Not very cheap to shoot and only holds seven rounds but if you run out of ammo you can just club somebody with it. Very much worth getting. You cant go wrong with a 50!!!!! - BRETT
This is a great handgun the only issue I have, which is really nothing, is that you must use good ammunition in it. I\'ve used the cheap ammo and it jams, but with the better ammo like Winchester, Remington, Hornady there\'s no problems. Some people say that its too heavy, but if my wife can shoot it and you have a grip better than an infant, the weight is actually a plus. The Mark XIX can be changed from a .44 magnum to a 50 cal with a quick barrel and magazine change in about 10 sec. In California you can only get the DE44CA, you can\'t buy the .357 or 50 cal, but with all the parts being interchangeable I can order new barrels, bolt (bolt for .357 mag.) and magazines and have 3 guns in one. I did change the grip and added new fixed night sights just to make it a little better. If your a gun geek and you have lots of guns already this is a must for your collection or if this is your first handgun this weapon is like jumping in with both feet. It\'s a very cool handgun. - T.

I purchased a BFR 45/70 10". I also purchased the bandalier holster and Hogue grips. I could not be happier with all of it. Recoil is extremely manageable for all that have fired it. eight friends have fired it and there is a little bit of letdown in their faces after they take a shot. The expected experience is much more exciting than reality. The BFR is very accurate and comfortable for me. The factory grips were not comfortable for me but I have big hands. While a novelty to look at, it is not a novelty to me as I enjoy shooting and carrying it. Love mine, do not be afraid of the recoil it is tame compared to expectation. - B. W.
