I am considering the .50 Beowulf. Is this gun damn loud? I read a magazine article and it said it kicks like a 20 gauge but some guys on the forum says its a brute. Should I consider getting the one with a muzzle brake or will the Extra noise not justify the taming of the recoil? Will the standard buffer work fine? Any recommendations I should make to my lower to make it function better?
Also, Are these chromed lined barrels?
I read that it accepts standard mags with little modificaiton to the mag feed lip. How do i to this mod?

Due to its pricey ammo and no knowledge on reloading, I plan on using it lightly as a plinker but mainly as a 200 yards or less hunting rifle. I live here in South Texas and plan to use it mainly on wild hogs. Would this caliber be way too brutal on feral pigs? I hate to shoot and splatter the poor beast to smithereens!

I have a .50 Beowulf entry upper w/o the brake. The gun is loud but it doesn't seem any worse than my other AR's with muzzle brakes. The Alexander Arms brake for the Beowulf would probably help with the recoil and muzzle rise but I am not paying $180 for the brake. The recoil feels more like a 12 gauge slug, definitely punishing on the shoulder. I am lucky to finish off a box of ammo when I go to the range because it starts to hurt my shoulder. My wife keeps nagging me to get a shoulder pad but I guess I like taking the punishment. I have used regular unmodified 20 and 30 rounds magazines with only one issue but I tend to just use the magazine that came with the upper. The barrel is chrome-moly not chrome-lined. I have the upper mounted on a Rock River national match A2 lower and have not had any issues with the standard buffer. Ammo is expensive and if I had to do it all over again I would probably have built a different AR but it is a fun gun and I have no plans to remove it from my arsenal. It is an attention getter at my local range. Should be a great rifle for hunting hogs. If you want a picture of my setup just send me an email, jasonpepin@bellsouth.net.

What optics do you use on your Beowulf? I am considering an Eotech or aimpont and hope it can take the recoil.

Any more insight on the Beowulf (with and without brakes) would be greatly apreciated.


I am as green as hell when it comes to handloading. I don't undertand what is used, the terminology, or how difficult or dangerous it is. I am considering this since it is the cheapest way to shoot this brute without braking the bank. Anywhere I can get information to get started?
Link Posted: 8/15/2004 4:26:35 PM EST
I have the Aimpoint ML2 with the Arms #22M68 including the Arms #22M68 cantilever extension. I used a little blue loctite on the screws when I assemblied the mount and rings and haven't had anything come loose yet. Either scope should work fine. I do not handload as I too do not feel comfortable doing that yet. www.competitionshootingsports.com has a lot of Alexander Arms things and could probably get you started. I never shoot more than one box when I go to the range unless I bring my friends since it is costly. Like I said earlier it is punishing on the shoulder so you probably wouldn't be shooting a lot of rounds through it at one time.

gargamel I can't help with the 50 but reloading is not that tricky. Ive been reloading for over 20 years about 18 different rounds, and I would recomend that you get Lee's reloading book "Modern Reloading" it not only tells you what to do and not to do it tells you why. If you read this book you'll know more about reloading than 80% of the people out there that reload.

I am runnning an Eotech on mine. Shoots point of aim every time I take it to the range. Hasn't shifted yet. So far so good.
Also have the Ace Socom stock & a heavy buffer/spring.
I think the recoil on mine feels more like a 20 gauge. Nowhere near 12 gauge slug territory! I am also using a Tango Down forward grip, so maybe that helps with recoil??
Oh yeah, no muzzle brake here but want to try one. I have been using Thermold mags with no mods & they work great. I love my Beowulf & just waiting on bear season!
Link Posted: 8/16/2004 5:00:54 PM EST
I like the gun, but the recoil can be hard to handle. I use 20rd gi mags and they work ok. haven't had any problems yet. If you do decide to reload, take your time and double check every thing. I have been reloading for about 40 years. It can be a big money saver and you get the pleasure of shooting your own ammo. You will not save much at first , but after a while it will save you some. I can not even begin to imagine the thousands of rounds I have loaded.

Where and which Heavy buffer do you recommend might be helpful in a .50 Beowulf? Do you think the M G I Buffer would work great? Any links to this buffer?

I was also told to use "packing grease" on the recoil buffer spring? Exactly what type or brand?

You'll get a great many pros and cons on the topic, but my personal opinion is the action spring shouldn't be 'packed' with anything, but rather, lubed per the -10 manual... Some folks seem to think stuffing grease in the receiver extension will quiet the trademark AR sproinggg, I believe if you don't like the sound you'd be happier with a bolt action rifle...

I'm running a shorty/entry sized stock for my .50 and am using a Colt tungsten heavy buffer I picked up from Fulton Armory along with a +10% spring from Wolff and the recoil is festive, but very manageable... I've no experience with the MGI buffer so you may want to ask some questions of the folks who are selling them on the EE as to their effectiveness with the .50 Beowulf...

Brownell's has them www.brownells.com

or you can get them direct from mgi www.mgimilitary.com

I got mine through the shop my brother and I run.
If you want me to I can check with him on the price and let you know.
Pretty sure we can do better than the $150 + shipping they have it listed at.
Let me know if you're interested IM or email me.

I'm running a fixed M4 stock on mine and a Wolff +10%XP action spring and a LMT H buffer. I just shot this last Sunday and discovered that in that configuration it has less recoil than using an A2 stock with its heavier rifle buffer. I use a Trijicon Reflex II on an ARMS mount on mine.

I've heard that muzzle brakes on .50 Beowulfs won't do much, and the factory brake is $180 .

Yeah, it is in essence a pistol cartridge but not everyone has ranges available to them that would allow the firing of a 50bmg. (I don't know of any around me that would)
Honestly I would love to have one of the big 50's but my opprotunities to actually get to shoot it would be limited.
Where as you can pretty much take one of these to almost any rifle range you want to.
And for the dollars I have invested in it, It cost me alot less than a 50bmg would have.
I know the ammo's still like 1$ a shot for the most part, but once you get to reloading them it wouldn't be so bad. (hopefully, but I'll know soon enough)
As for the kick and noise, I'm sure it doesn't have to anything equal to an AR50 or a barrett, but it does have more than your typical ar-15 or FAL that most guys have.
But heck they're fun to shoot.
So, it's not a 50bmg, but heck as long as you enjoy building it and shooting it, isn't that what's important ? Getting what you feel is the most enjoyment for those hard earned $$$$.

Hi I just got my Beowulf a week ago and fired it today at indoor range. The recoil to me is simular to my M1 Garand 30.06. Report is like my 5.56 AR w/comp. This is a very nice shooter I have a cheap $30 BSA red dot on it and was expecting it to fail due to the recoil but so far it is ok,time will tell. Hope this helps.

I use an EOTech Holosight on mine and after almost 1000 rds it is still working like a champ.
Only thing I have ever done is replace the batteries (keep a spare set in the stock well and you will never be disapointed when you get out and find they are dead ;) Best sight for this gun in my opinion as the gun works best in the 100-200 yd teritory and this sight is good in there.
I can hit small man/pig targets at 200 yds every time.

Yes

Medium, I guess. The only other VFG that I have much ecperience with is the Samco



I got the Falcon grip from Brownells. I bought it before the TangoDown grip was available. It was less expensive than any of the other VFGs that I knew of, yet still has storage capabiliity. I added a section of bicycle inner tube to make the hard plastic more "grippy".
When shooting the 'wulf I pull the stock in tight to my shoulder with the pistol grip and push forward firmly with the VFG. No problems with recoil(still intrigued by the MGI recoil reducer, though). I believe that the VFG helps a lot.

Yeah, you are right. It's definitely not a pistol cartridge.
Only said it due to the straight walled case. Not shaped like you typical rifle round.
Some people do consider it to be just a pistol round due to that fact.

The 458 has a more traditional appearance for a rifle round.
When you say rifle round most people have a typical image of it in their mind, larger diameter base, necked down to a smaller bullet diameter. Like a 223 or 308 round.
You show someone a 30 carbine round that doesn't know what it is and they'd probably ask what type of handgun it was for.

That was the reason I said "in essence" due to the shape.
Not becasue I consider it to be a pistol round at all.

The shape of the brass and the bullet diameter is really all there is to consider it similar to a handgun round.

It reminds me of a rebated rim .500 S&W case. Or does the .500 S&W remind me of a rimmed .50 Beowulf?

Sometimes I get confused. Fortunately, I only own one, so there is no problem.

An S&W X-frame that would accept .50 Beowulf on moon clips would be interesting.

I bet that would be a handfull.
Though I'm sure that .500 is definitely no slouch itself.
Never shot one or had a chance to see one or the ammo up close.
Are they close in Overall length ?

IIRC from looking at the load data a .50 Beowulf and .500 S&W are almost identical as far as powder charge and bullet weights for those charges. It would be redundant to make an X frame for it unless you just had to have one in that caliber.

Pistol Cartridge? What exactly is the definition of a pistol cartridge? I would think it would be a cartridge designed to function in a pistol, which the .50 Beowulf definitely is not.

I called Alexander Arms a few months ago when I first got my Beowulf to ask about replacement forends. I ended up talking to Bill Alexander himself. He said, and forgive me if I got any of the details wrong, that he developed the Beowulf after working as part of a team on another AR/M16 "project". He said there were quite a few spare parts available, so he just wanted to see what was the biggest round that could be made to function in the AR platform. As part of the design process he contacted Starline brass, and they had just done a run of .50 Action Express brass, so it was decided to use, basically, lengthened .50AE brass for the new round.
Link Posted: 9/19/2004 8:37:09 AM EST
I did have the chance to talk to Bill( I think it was) at the 2003 shot show in Florida. Great guy, very helpful and informative. Had alot of impressive examples of the beowulf there in all types of configurations.And I was completely awestruck with it from the second I saw it.

OK,It may have similarities to pistol ammo but not it's definitely not a pistol round by any means.
It's a great rifle, a great round. I never meant for it to be interpreted that I was trying to say it was a pistol cartridge in any way shape or form.
A friend of mine has a 50AE and yeah you put them side by side and there are similarities and it does look like a lengthened verion. But with the rebated rim. Bullet diameters are even the same.

It honestly makes no difference either way to me if someone makes a handgun capable of firing it just one of those interesting what if things.

So far I've seen ever kind of question come up and be posted here,
Some people that obviously like thebeowulfs and some that obviously don't.
Some guys trying to make up their mind what to buy.
That's why they are here, to ask questions to figure out what they want to spend their money for.

Everyone has their own opinion and are completely entitled to it.
But those opinions should be presented and then left up to the individual to interpret them and make their own decision. Not an opinion presented and then if disagreed with is continually bombarded with reason that what they own or their opinion of it is so much better than what someone else thinks or owns all things have +/- .

If something doesn't make sense ask more questions, till your comfortable with your decision on what to buy.

IMHO... If i didn't aleady have one, After going through all these questions and replies and posts, I'd still buy it. It's a great rifle and a great round, and I love mine.
I'd recommend it to anyone, just like the guys with the 458's. they love them and would probably recommend them to anyone looking for a big bore AR.
That's what makes th AR such a great platform. Some many options and possibilities.

I agree 100%.


I think the big bores: Beowulf,L-W, SOCOM, have more potential for a wider range of uses than the 5.56. While 5.56, 7.62 and maybe 6.5 Grendel or 6.8 makes sense for the military and long range shooters, the big bores have what it takes for law enforcement and civilian and hunting scenarios.
What we need now is a greater variety of factory ammo, including some designed specifically for self-defense(frangible?).

+1 I defintiely agree

It's hard to remember becasue I saw so much incredible stuff that weekend.
But I think there were because I remember telling my brother that it looked awfully short for a .50
So it's possible. But it may have just been a 16 with a short stock on it.
But I do remember one of the 24" overwatch models .
It was quite inpressive.

I know they had a few there with different optics, handuards,stocks.
Just blew me away. At that time I never beleived you could stuff a big bore round into an AR but I'm definitely a satisfied beleiver now.

Quoted from airbornecombatengineer.typepad.com/airborne_combat_engineer/2004/03/the_leitnerwise.html
Interestingly, Paul Leitner-Wise, the founder of L-W, once worked with Bill Alexander, the founder of Alexander Arms, which makes the .50 Beowulf. The rifles and cartridges are similar and in direct competition.

Hey, sorry man, no flame or disrespect intended.
I sure don't know the full story of the relationship between Bill Alexander and Paul Leitner-Wise and how much or what kind of work they did together. And it really doesn't have anything to do with the products that both now offer.
I DO know that I have spoken to people from both companies on the phone, they're both VERY helpful, and I would buy and recommend products from both.

Since the Beowulf and L-W are so close in configuration, I wonder if they are interchangeable to any degree?

Has anyone ever experimented with them or seen an engineering drawing on their dimensions?

I don't know how the L-W differs, I've never seen one. A .50 Beowulf is pretty simple really. It's a mid-length AR with their .50 barrel uses a 7.62x39mm bolt in a regular carrier, regular 20 or 30 round mags and the ejection port is opened up a little and a dust door isn't used and it can use a CAR or rifle stock.

I believe the L-W case is a tad longer. I have the BEOWULF, had some issues with it jamming, but I think I've got it straightened out. It's still a little rough on the brass. (scrapes from locking lugs)

I started having trouble with failures to feed, specifically the action not completely closing, severe gouges on the brass. I bought a new magazine from Midway, and that didn't help. Today, I took a made in England mag, took a green follower and ground it flat, and tweaked the feed lips, and it fed great. Very minimal marks on the brass. The only problem with it was that it had trouble closing on the first round with 10 in the mag, because of the spring pressure from the mag. I really think I may need a stonger or new recoil spring. Maybe the rounds are going nose up to fast becasue the action isn't closing fast enough. But, it appears that with a perfectly tweaked mag, it will do fine. Sounds like everybody else's guns are running great. I am still totally thrilled with mine.

Me too. My stock mag was only good for about 120 rounds, then started jamming about every other round. I did a lot to figure it out. I shit-canned the stock mag. I'm using a new 20 rounder with a Wolff +10% mag spring, a red prototype Magpul follower which I've gone over with the Dremel making it fit a little looser in the tube. I changed out the extractor spring to a Wolff XP M4 spring and removed the barrel and polished (w/o removing any metal) the feed ramp area of the barrel extension to a bright chrome like finish.. Buttoned it all back up and shot 30 rounds jam free on Monday. Broke a Crane Clone stock too, so now I'm running it with an ACE stock with rubber butt plate on it.

I also had to slim down the follower a bit, as it was a bit wider that the one in the Royal Ordinance mag. In addition, I beveled the inside of the front edge of the mag, so the case mouths don't catch on it. I ground the follower flat to keep it from cocking sideways as much, and aid them to center in the magazine more quickly, as oppsed to being pushed to either side first.
I have fired 30 jam free rounds today myself. I would really like to put a nice trigger in this thing, too. That's probably next.

I put a 3# jard single stage in mine.
have to be a little careful with it.
Friend of mine shot my wulf and I had told him it had the 3# trigger but it still surprised him.
Once you get used to it, it's great. takes your mind off of squeezing the trigger so you can focus on the target.

I have handled an 11.5 or 12 inch Bewoulf, very nice. I also hear that the .499 Leitner-Wise will be available in the LMT MRP, although I can't confirm. I would rather have the .50 Beowulf. I have met Bill Alexander, he knows his stuff and is quite friendly.
