I recently found this web page: www.joeken.com/

They listed the Hesse 50 cal. for $1119.  Is this rifle worth a crap?  I know all the stories about Hesse, but could they really mess up a 50 cal.?

I'm sure they could screw this up too.  I have looked at these, but haven't heard any feedback from anyone that actually has one.  If you find some info, send it my way too, please

LOL...simple answers are always the best.

Would still like to hear from someone who has one or info on one.

Russian roulette anyone?

I would never combine a Hesse receiver, a .50cal round, and my head all within about a foot of one another.

If I asked this question:

Who could mess up an AK?

What would your answer be?

One guy on l1a1.com did a nice review of this rifle.  When he received it, the bolt wasn't in the rifle.  He found-out why when he tried to insert it.  It wouldn't fit!  He said he had a machine shop do about 10 hours of work on it, before it was functional.  He was still happy with it, because he didn't have to buy an expensive 50BMG chamber finishing reamer.  I think he said it would do about 1.5 MOA at 100 yards with surplus ammo.  medcop, if you're really interested, I might could find the old post.  Just let me know.z

I think I will just save up for the Ferret .50

It sounds like Hesse could screw up a wet dream.
