Big Horn Armory

Has anyone heard anything about Big Horn Armory? I came across a video the other day of a Model 89 Carbine 500 S&W by big horn armory. It looks like a lot of fun but I've never heard of them before. Any information?

Is this something you can find at a LGS or is it something that has to be special ordered?

Based on the price I just saw on the web page, I'm guessing it would need to be ordered. Not too many LGS's are gonna keep a $2500.00 firearm in stock.

They offer a 460s&w that I find very interesting. They couldnt provide any data as far as accuracy at the time they asked me to pre-order. I have no problem dropping $3500 for a rifle I want as long as I have a guarantee it will do what I ask of it. They wont make that guarantee.

Unless it says Kimber or commorative on it and has fake gold plating. Then they have 2 of those!
