After successfully duking it out with the wife, I am ready to purchase another child... My problem: I can't decide whether to buy the Armalite AR 10(T) or the AR 50. I already own 4 AR rifles in .223, 2 Colts and 2 Bushmasters. I was all excited to get a .308 but after actually seeing the .50 at a gun show a while back I have been yearning! I welcome any and all advice you all might have for either camp! Thanks

50 is in more danger of being banned

I would suggest the AR10T. It's way cheaper to shoot. Of course some might say that the AR50 is a good investment since certain people want to ban them, which would make the price go way up. But if there's no ban, I'd go with the AR10T.

I can't believe your "deciding". THE AR-50. What the hell is a .308 to a .50 BMG. and better yet get one before their gone.

Follow your "yearning." Listen to your inner voice and you will never regret it. Good hunting/shooting[smoke]

Get the .50 and an FAL. But remember you may have to lose the next few rounds with the Mrs. [:D]

You know, that advice has gotten me into more trouble than I care to share. Then again, its why I have all the "children" that I do...

Can you afford to shoot the 50 on a regular basis? The price of that ammo will only go up and its already a $1.50 a shot.

even if you can't afford to shoot it the 50 is the way to go. get one while they last.

If you get the 50 make shure you have a place to shoot it.the rangesd around here dont believe there berms are thick enough. Anyone know how many feet to stop in heavy clay and standard soil?

I agree 150% with Garand Shooter. Out of all practicality get the AR10T. I would never trade or give up mine for any other rifle. Not even an AR15.

HEHEHEHEH, You may be confusing yearning and lusting which I find easy to do. Consider adopting a "BIG BROTHER" for the "little ones." [smoke]

The AR10 will shortly be offered in the new .300 Remington Short Action Magnum. These will be choice. A real 1000 yard AR. Maybe the best of both worlds.

I would say get the AR-50, while the getting is good. If you can afford over 2K for a rifle, you can afford the ammo. Plus, .50 BMG can be reloaded for as little as 65 cents a round, [b]excluding[/b] brass. Getting into a .50 is a fair sized commitment, so if you just want another rifle to shoot, go ahead and get the AR 10T. That make your decision any easier? :)

I have both, and they are equally enjoyable to shoot. Since my loacl range does not allow 50's, I have to say I tend to shoot alot more of my smaller caliber stuff. I probably shoot my 50 about once every 2 months. I am positive if my local range allowed them I would be shooting it more. I would say go with the one you are probably going to use more.

If your hunting bears that wear 1 inch of steel armor get the 50, if you want a practical useable weapon, get the AR10.
Link Posted: 7/13/2001 12:00:20 PM EDT
There is no decision. GET THE AR50 NOW, YESTERDAY EVEN. I love mine. Sure ammo is expensive, but man it is sooooo much fun to shoot. Forget the AR-10. it will be there. Remember, Ms. Cunt Feinstein can't handle how the 50's look like the big penis she can never get. That Nazi want's to take the 50cal away. All the more reason to go buy one and FAX that Cunt the reciept!!!
