I was searching the net for an "affordable" .50 cal weapon. I came across one of those Ar-50 kits. Has anyone had any experiance with these. The fact you are firing a .50 bmg on an aluminum receiver held on buy 2 pins designed for a .223 sounds kinda sketchy. The website claims they fire time and time again without any problems. Just wondering if any one who has shot or owns one can give me some feedback. Thanks

Thank you for putting the quotation marks around the word affordable.

For a lot more money you can buy a Barrett.  If you hurry, you might stioll be able to get in [url=http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=182434&page=1]StyerAUG's group buy[/url].  But hurry, at these prices, they won't last long.

Ya, I want one before the ban, LA county already placed a ban. The thing is I can't afford a $7k Barrett, although it would be nice. I just want something I could use to blast rocks with in the desert, or maybe blast some APC's in case of a Red Dawn situation [}:D]

There is a 50BMG section in the Armory here on arfcom.

If you are gonna pay 1500, I would suggest stalking the [url=http://www.biggerhammer.net/barrett/wwwboard/] Biggerhammer 50 Board [/url] and finding a Ferret or such.

I have a Ferret and love it!

Good Luck!

Lots of happy Ferret owners out there. Also the Watson's uppers are well respected in the 50BMG world. In "two weeks" the MMAG50, designed by the Great Serbu will be hitting the streets. A pretty economical way to get into shooting the fun stuff. You won't find another gun with such a great selection of fun ammo availible.
