Never seen one of these, check auction number 439976367 at gunbroker.com.........I've shot an xp100 in 350 Remington, but this might be a little over the top. Might be way cool to own though! I'd think that rollin pigs from the truck window would be one helluva a good time:beerglass:

I had one of these in .45-70, three or four rounds and you could really feel it in your wrist and forearms, Sold it to a friend. it was fun.

It makes the 45/70 look pretty tame, however if the 460 wasn't ported then I'd bet it would be pretty close.

My 6 lb Winchester feels like that after a few rounds but then again I'm not as tough as I once was.

The question is "Why?". Reminds me of shooting a friends 4" Smith 629. OK to try it but I don't want to own one.
My biggest issue with hand cannons is the muzzle blast. That is unpleasant to be at the same range when that thing goes off.

Bill you said it yourself!
"Always better to carry too much gun and too many cartridges..."
But.............Too many 450 cartridges might be to much to carry around!:hmmmm:

These looked fun - look like they might roll in your hand a bit, to lessen the load. I agree with Bill2311 on the S&W - I used to have a 6" Model 29 and there was no roll - the recoil was straight into your hand. Brutal then. 30 years later, I don't think I'd want to have one any more. These still looked fun though
