DUDE! thats SOOoo LAST WEEK! LOL Really though Tromix beat ya to that one a long time ago. I have never shot one only seen a few. People that have shot them complain of recoil alot. I tucked this one into my little file Called WHY??

Tromix quit making the 50AE, and the other companies that still do havent really made a well working 50AE yet. Now the one I bought from Tony is in .458SOCOM and it kicks ass! you can get one from www.teppojutsu.com for the same price as from Tromix, $865. I would highly recommend getting one!!

how much does a 50AE kick? Do they kick like a 308?? If you want to talk about kick try rem700 in 7mm magnum (or better yet, 300 win mag or 300 rem ultramag)

The .50 AE does not kick that bad. About like a 12 Ga. with birdhot loads. It is more like a shove than a "kick".

I just sent my upper to Tony for some final modifications. He is turning the barrel down and going with carbine hand guard. This will leave the gas block exposed, which I think will look very cool. It is the big round gas block that I think DPMS sells for their space guns.

The .458 was not available when I bought mine. So now I'm thinking I need another one.
