Smith & Wesson 500 Magnum

When you want to shoot a handgun with real power, you need to experience the Smith & Wesson 500 Magnum. In the realm of magnum shooting, this gun stands alone as the king of power. Designed for hunting the largest game, it’s not for the timid. Bring your A game and get ready to rumble.

Power of a Magnum

In 2003, the gunsmiths and engineers at Smith & Wesson wanted to deliver maximum power for serious handgun hunters. The gun they sought required an entirely new frame — the massive “X-Frame™” — and was the basis for the new Smith & Wesson 500 Magnum™, the most powerful production revolver in the world.

With cartridge engineering supplied by Cor-Bon, a well-respected ammunition innovator, this ushered in the era of the “big gun”, and it was only the beginning. For ultimate power and velocity, nothing comes close to an X-Frame model handgun for magnum shooting.

S&W 500 Magnum

The .500 S&W Magnum is a 50 caliber handgun cartridge that was developed with two purposes: to be a hunting cartridge capable of handling all North American big game and to be the most powerful handgun cartridge in the world. It succeeds at both. Made by Smith and Wesson, who are known for producing quality handguns, the S&W 500 was introduced in 2003 and is the biggest production revolver on the market. The Model 500 is a 5 shot revolver that is both single and double action. 

A standard Model 500 revolver is built with on a stainless steel frame, making it very solid and sturdy. A lot of time and energy went into the design of this gun, as the amount of pressure and energy produced by each shot is enough to blow up the frame of most revolvers. With the newly designed X frame, the designers and engineers were able to come up with a gun that lowers recoil and enhances the control, which makes shooting this gun manageable. It comes equipped with a Hogue recoil absorbing grips that have finger grooves that help grip and handle the gun. 

This gun packs a serious punch. The sights and safety were also designed with this in mind. To make it more accurate, Smith and Wesson equipped this revolver with different sight options and made them adjustable. This gun also includes an internal self-engaging hammer block, making it as safe as a gun can be. There are few handguns that can even be in the same category as the S&W 500, and the durability, power, and accuracy of this gun will surprise even the most advanced shooters. 

With a gun so large and powerful, it is no surprise that it has been used across many facets of pop culture. It can be spotted in popular movies such as 21 Jump Street, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and Smokin’ Aces. It can also be spotted on television, across shows such as Bones, Lock ‘n Load, and Top Shot. Because of its large physical size and large caliber, it is a very popular gun for tv and movies and seems to be getting more and more popular every year. Shooting this gun is just as fun as it looks, and is quite the experience for anyone who has never fired a handgun of this size. 

This gun shoots amazing. Not only is it big and sturdy, it is fun to shoot and is capable of taking down any big game animal on the continent if you wanted to use it for that purpose.
