Just might want to add plugs to that. Breaks do a great job of reducing the recoil. But boy o boy do they blow that blast right back at ya.

All M99's are made with an aluminum receiver. Post up pics of what you have.

Now that is an interesting and sweet looking rifle. Enjoy her.

Use double hearing protection, foam and muffs, etc. Don't forget to wear safety glasses or goggles. Back blast carries all sorts of crap with it past your eyes.

Thanks guys cant wait too shoot it actually the only reason I haven't yet is because I have no hearing muffs but I ordered them and they should be here soon everything I read said plugs and muffs it should be fun , What do you think shoulder firing this would be like ?

About time. Was my post right? Did you shoulder fire it?

Should be a requirement. That a new shooter have someone there making a video of the first shot.

That looks nice. I have a 99 with the 32" barrel. Brings a smile to my face every time. This guys shoots it standing up. HE has the 4 port brake. Go to 5:30. I'd be willing to try if I could hold it more steady. I guess that would be a good excuse to lift some weights.

Nice video. Thanks for posting. How in the hell do you forget your hearing protection when shooting a 50 BMG? He is lucky he has any hearing at all. I use double hearing protection and still hear mine pretty good. OP, post a picture of your new toy in the 50 photo thread.
