The commies have passed their ban, so I must have a .50 just because. But, funds are limited. So, I thought perhaps I'd buy an AR lower now (DPMS single-shot: CA legal!), register it as a .50, then get a .50 upper ASAP.

I'm new to the big bore scene, so could someone let me know what is available in terms of AR lower .50s that can be bought as uppers only? Thanks!

Ferret makes a cool one. I think one of the guys here have one.

AR50 isn't an upper. it is a complete rifle.

Watson Weapons 50 cal upper. I have one and really like it. It is made more for match shooting but will shoot surplus just fine. Very Accurate It will ship UPS right to your door. The only down side is that is uses a screw in style bolt and takes some time to shoot. I think you could shoot 3 rounds a minute if you were good. It comes with a special pin that makes it easy to open up the upper and load.(break open style action) It operates likes the worlds largest single shot H&R shotgun.

The muzzle blast is a real ass kicker thats for sure but the recoil is not to bad. You can only realy fire this weapon in prone position. I would not want to fire it of a bench. They are not a bad deal if you don't plan on shooting alot but always wanted a 50. I think they are seling for aroung $1300 last time I checked. The biggest advantage is that they are only an upper so there is no paper work. I hope this info helped you.

Take Care and good luck in the Peoples Republic of Kali. you are going to need it
