Outrageous Collar is correct. You can order a custom made Pfeifer-Zeliska .600 for $17000.00 to $18000.00 which can be chambered for either the .600 Nitro Express or the 458 Winchester Magnum. The single action pistol weighs in at over 13 pounds which makes the recoil manageable, but I wouldn't suggest trying to use it as a quick draw weapon. "Collar is also correct on ammunition price as the .600 Nitro is hard to get. The cost to load and empty the 5 shot cylinder would be at least $200.00. But if your lifelong dream is to face thick skinned dangerous game with a pistol, this is the gun for you. Nearbit is wrong! There is no way the .50 caliber production guns like the Desert Eagle, the S&W 500, the 454 Casull, or the 480 Ruger, are even close to this for ballistics
The Smith & Wesson 500 is the most powerful handgun that is made commercially. The Pfeifer-Zelikska .600 would be the most powerful if you are talking about a custom made one. For more info to go http://www.vincelewis.net/60magnum.html.
The Smith and Wesson model 500 .50 caliber has been rated as being the most powerful handgun in the world. The Austrian Pfeifer Zeliska .600 Nitro Express hand pistol is equal to the Smith and Wesson 500.
