Cody, Wyo. (May 2023) – Big Horn Armory (BHA), makers of big-bore firearms, is proud to announce its Memorial Day Sale, honoring and supporting the brave first responders and military service members who dedicate their lives to serving our communities. Between May 26 – 28, all first responders and military service members, current and veterans, can enjoy an exclusive 20 percent discount on any new BHA AR500 semi-auto rifle or pistol. Orders may be placed directly online; first responders simply need to provide proof of service with a valid ID and military service members must present proof of service with a valid Military ID or DD-214 before the gun is shipped. BHA is currently shipping the AR500 from stock and a service representative will contact you within 48 hours to discuss options.
Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the military. Big Horn Armory recognizes that first responders, including law enforcement, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel, play a vital role in safeguarding our communities day in and day out. This Memorial Day Sale is BHA’s way of expressing gratitude and appreciation for all of their selfless service.
“We are honored to show our support for the first responders and military service members and veterans who put their lives on the line to protect and serve,” said Greg Buchel, President of Big Horn Armory. “Our Memorial Day Sale is a small gesture of our appreciation for their dedication and sacrifice. We want to equip them with the best firearms available to ensure their safety and success in the field.”
The AR500 rifle is an AR rifle like no other. Chambered in 500 Auto Max, BHA’s groundbreaking AR500 Rifle is the most powerful AR firearm available. BHA was not content with the big bore cartridge offerings available in the AR platform, so the company made its own. The logical choice was something to match the power and versatility of BHA’s Model 89 Lever Action in 500 Smith & Wesson Magnum. The result was the development of the 500 Auto Max, a rimless 500 S&W Magnum to feed in a semi-automatic rifle.
BHA’s bold AR design and big bore 500 Auto Max cartridge put an unparalleled amount of power into a pleasant shooting, rapid-firing, versatile rifle. This combination of size, familiar manual-of-arms, available accessories, and energy on target make the AR500 Rifle ready to handle almost any situation. The AR500 is also available in an ATF-compliant pistol configuration: the AR500 semi-auto pistol.
The 500 Auto Max is a rimless 500 S&W Magnum that is easy to obtain or reload. A very versatile cartridge, it can be had in loaded ammunition with bullets ranging from 350grns to an amazing 600grns. The handloader can utilize over 55 different bullets ranging from 200grns to 700grns in almost any bullet type imaginable, including hard cast, jacket hollow points, monolithic solids, etc. This unprecedented range of bullet weight and design make the AR500 suitable for anything from prairie dogs to pachyderms to Peterbilt’s. Truck stopping power in a platform weighing less than 10 pounds. Factory ammunition for the 500 Auto Max is available through Buffalo Bore, Steinel Ammunition, Underwood Ammunition, and Defiant Munitions.
Whether it is packing 36,800 ft. lbs. of energy in a lever-action, or building the most powerful AR on the market, BHA’s goal is to give the customer the biggest bang for his or her buck.

About Big Horn Armory:
Big Horn Armory was founded in 2008 with the expressed intention of designing a Browning-type lever-action gun chambered in 500 Smith & Wesson Magnum. The Big Horn Armory Model 89, made in America, closely follows the work of John Browning with refinements courtesy of modern metallurgy and machining capabilities. The first rifles began shipping in September of 2012 and since then, BHA has added to their big bore lineup with a Model 90 Carbine in 460 S&W, the Model 90A in 454 Casull, the Model 90B in .45 Colt, the Model 89A in 500 Linebaugh and the Model 89B in .475 Linebaugh. In 2017, Big Horn Armory took a departure from its lever-action series and developed the AR500 Auto Max, the most powerful short-range, semi-auto based on an AR .308 platform.
