Big Horn Armory

Big Horn Armory  (BHA) 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 modern 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.

Now in its tenth year of business, BHA is seeking to gain greater awareness in the commercial market with its AR500 platform, as well as enter the law enforcement market.


BHA contacted LBM through a reference. With over 15 years of experience in the firearms, law enforcement and military/tactical markets, partnering with LBM was the solution. LBM will drive awareness through public relations and writer relations to gain a greater acceptance of the big bore rifles in commercial and LE communities.
