    Is it the Pfeifer-Zeliska revolver in .600 nitro express?

    No, I cannot identify it.  I can say, by way of scaling, the cartridge held in the hand does not go to the revolver in either picture.

      Well the first one is a 12 gauge revolver, says so in the caption (Well literally "revolver 12 caliber")....The other?....beats me.

    Ouch.

    Can't identify it, but I'm pretty sure I don't want to shoot it.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    I think you are right about the second photo

    Maybe it is the angle, but are these photos of 2 different guns?

    this showed up on one of the Mrs.' russian social sites

    wonder if Luke could make me a Texas rig for it? :hmm

    Sure, you'll just have to supply him a blue gun first so he can model it.

      Yes, there are two different guns. In the top pic, where the old skeezer is pointing at the camera, that's the 12 gauge, in the bottom two that's the Hellifiknow.

    I must admit they are pretty impressive. I thought the "biggest" revolver was the 500 magnum (btw, why doesn't anyone consider the BFR in 45-70 to be the biggest? The 500 gets all the glory). Can we even get anything like the pictured above in America?

    I'm with MTK20 in the "I don't wanna shoot it" camp...

    In Soviet Russia, revolver shoots you... and breaks your wrist...

    Besides, that is only "enough gun" in Russia to effectively kill bear cubs and wound Russian Caucasian mountain dog puppies  ;).
