Have any of you ever heard of a HK PSG-1 in 50BMG? One guy I know once told me he had one, and had spent $13,000 to modify it...then again I don't trust him and really doubt his credibility since he was never able to show me or his other friends this weapon.

Today someone else told me that SEALs use a "PSG-1 in 50" and it weighs about 60 lbs and has a "carrying handle"...I said "M82A1" and he said no, it was a PSG-1 with a suppressor...I have no clue.

Enlighten me please

The only PSG-1 that I have heard of or read about was in .308 and weighted a heavy 18 lbs. or so...

Well I suppose you could take a PSG1 trigger group and build the rest of the rifle around it.......

AKA he's full of sheit

that guy is a pathologically lying ass-clown who doesnt know what he's talking about and will obviously say anything to get you <his friends> to think he's cool. ive never seen seals carrying an M82 SASR although im sure they have it. ive seen some navy EOD guys use it. i have seen them with McMillan .50s and even some wicked styer-looking thing i am told was in .338 lapua. apparently this guy you know thinks that by attaching the seals good name to his flimsy and absurd story will lend him some credability. unless he wears a trident i'd tell him to go F himself.

That's major BS. You can go to the HK-usa website to look at current HK offerings to the LE/Military. To take the PGS1 receiver (which is already perfected) from a 308/762x51 length bolt to a 50 bmg size, that's not modify it. That's a completely different rifle.

i dont imagine the roller-delayed blowback action lends its self to well to 50 bmg, i could be wrong however.

Think about this.
G3's and PSG=1s have been known to chuck their brass into low orbit.
Realisticly, they throw the things pretty far out. Imagine the PSG=1 throwing a .50bmg brass that far. I'd hate to be in the path of that sonuvabitch.

It would be cool to see a PSG-1 50cal. But, I've gone to 50cal club and I've never seen one. The US Military uses alot of different 50cals. McMillian Tactical 50cal was used in Afghan. Seals use the Barret 82A1 and McMillian T.
I forgot to add that the PSG-1 is very heavy in the first place. Imagine a PSG-1 50cal-H&K steel and 50cal parts. People that own H&K weapons like the G3 or H&K91 know.

The HK91 platform actually holds up quite well under the .50-it's a damn good gun for shots out to a mile as well-if you've never put 3 rounds into the engine block of a hostile HMMVW, you haven't lived.


That gun must really hurt anyone standing by.
