With .50AE full power Hornady will cycle well with a full locked out elbow firm grip.

Some factory mags need a bit of tuning to work reliably.

The engineering of the pistol is pretty cool.

They are a crowd pleaser at any shoot.

They have quite the muzzle flip/recoil. Not sharp like a magnum since they are gas operated but they are a handful.

I've had a couple of the .50's. Israeli and American made and never had a malfunction. They are very heavy which results in little recoil but holding them up gets tiring after a couple mags.

Don't own one but got to shoot the .50 AE a bit and it is a sweetheart. Sure it has some force but not overly snappy in any way. Very manageable (this coming from a mid size, IT working, not workout kind of guy).

They should actually be quite reliable given the action it has vs. standard pistols.

I do want one and will add to my collection. If you can do it for a fun gun, do it.

Hellz yeeeah!!!!



Mine is a .44 and is almost a pleasure to shoot compared to the .50.
A mag or two of the .50 and you're done, the .44 you can shoot all day.



Enjoy it!

Didn't realize the Hive loved the eagle ,
