      I really want to see these guns in the game, the Rob Arms XCR, the SCAR L, the Magpul Masada/ACR, and the Sig P226, I hate how no company has the Rob Arms XCR because they cannot pay for it to be in the game, why do you think there are so many HK’s or FN’s?

          The Magpul Masada is the design origin of the Bushmaster and Remington Acr dumbass, not an airsoft gun. Magpul designed the Masada off of the best features of the FN Scar, H&K G36/XM8, Armalite AR-18, and the M16/AR-15 with a few touches of the H&K G3 and MP-5 before striking a deal with Bushmaster. The Masada was the original prototype from Magpul back in 2006/2007; the Bushmaster didn’t release till 2010, while Remington didn’t release till late 2011. Get your facts straight before calling someone a NOOB.

      I know what you’re thinking. “Did he fire six shots or only five?” Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk?

        Not to be a troll but isn’t the Smith and Wesson 500 the most powerful handgun in the world?

          the .44 had it at one point in time, then the Desert Eagle (.50 Action Express) had it, then the S&W 500 (it’s a .50 round as well but it has more power behind it, while the Deagle’s .50 AE is cut down when compaired to the S&W 500′s round.) took it. I think there is another one out that is more powerful but it’s not mass produced.

          but, the S&W 500 was made as a back up weapon for bear hunting.

        For the fun of it I looked up your guns Mr. Callahan:
        - Smith & Wesson Model 29 chambered in .44 Magnum
        - AMP Auto Mag Model 180 chambered in .44 AMP
        I was actually expecting it to be a more ‘common’ calibre like .357 Magnum, but seeing this makes my quote even more justified =p

      I don’t think it would make much of a difference since on most games that have single action pistols they usually aren’t slow when re-cocking the hammer

    The Desert Eagle and its .50 AE was never more powerful than the .44 Magnum let alone the .454 Casull or the .500 S&W
    As far as I know even the .45 ACP and .357 Magnum are stronger than the .50 AE.

      You dont know very far. The 50AE has all the dimensions of .44 Magnum except diameter is increased to hold a .50 bullet. It is sometimes even referred to as the .50 Magnum. The rim dimensions are actually identical to .44 Magnumb which is why the Desert Eagle can fire both rounds with only a barrel swap. 50AE has 10-30% more energy in a larger diameter bullet than .44 Magnum depending on loading.

    It’s a sick gun. However; you can only unlock the .44 and the .44 scoped. There are no added attatchments for any pistols, only as is. The g17 is the only pistol with a laser and the silenced pistols are just that. Again there are NO additional attatchments for sidearms.

      There is / was a silenced version of the .44 Magnum.
      They are / were only given to certain DICE’s employees though.

    EDIT: and the tactical versions with the tac light. You CANNOT add a tac light or laser to the pistols. They are as is when you select them.

    JD, your an idiot, maybe the .45ACP is stronger than the .50AE in modern warfare. but in real life the strongest production load for the .45 (~800 ft/lbs) is no where close to the .50′s weakest load (~1200 ft/lbs). the strongest load for the .50 AE is around 2100 ft/lbs getting hit with the .50AE has the same energy transfer as being hit twice with a .45 then once with a 9MM

    My favorite pistil/revolver is the Smith & Wesson Model 629 Performance Center. You guys should check it out, best looking revolver I have ever seen and it’s powerful too, probably one of the best.
