DAQ .457 Magnum  32" barrel 615 fpe

formerly .495 cal

This gun started out as a .495 6 shot 240 fpe "plinker". It slowly transformed into a .457 powerhouse by way of Big Bore Bob's "UberMagnum" tuning modification. It also sports a 32" .457 Quackenbush barrel. The breech has been elongated to accept the long 630 grn Hunters Supply hard cast bullet. The camo paint job was done by me with several layers of camo spray paint and a matte clear coat. This gun is intended for long range targets and big game at long ranges.
