Magnum Contest

The types of guns used on our Magnum Contest*

*Please see note at foot of this page.

.357 Magnum Revolver (18 shots)

This sturdy double action revolver will fire both .38 Special and the more powerful .357 Magnum interchangeably so gives the shooter the option to shoot either cartridge type according to need. The low shot capacity of revolvers (typically 6 rounds) and the higher recoil when compared to semi-automatic pistols are to some degree compensated by the fact that they are generally more reliable and less complex to learn to shoot.

  • Weight: 1.12 kg (empty)
  • Calibre: .357 Magnum
  • Capacity: 6 rounds

 

Smith & Wesson Model 629 .44 Magnum – The “Dirty Harry revolver” (18 shots)

Became legendary following its appearance in the Clint Eastwood movie “Dirty Harry” in the 1970s. Still pretty much as powerful as handguns get and certainly one of the heaviest recoils. Often carried by Park Rangers and others at risk of bear attack. Anything less just wouldn’t work! One of the most popular on the Top Gun Tours with British visitors.

  • Weight: 1.41 kg (empty)
  • Calibre: .44 Magnum
  • Capacity: 6 rounds

* Please note that some guns may vary slightly in appearance to those shown above and/or elsewhere on this website. If for operational reasons a specific gun included on one of our shooting events needs to be withdrawn for repairs, or is otherwise unavailable, a suitable alternative will be provided. This is sometimes unavoidable, but we will do our best to ensure that it is the exception rather than the rule. For more information see our Terms and Conditions – Section 1.
