you see any advantages over a barrett single shot?

I've not fired a single shot Barret only a M82 and that was a very long time ago. The AR50 is very comfortable to shoot and recoils much like a muzzleloader to me just with a little more travel in the recoil is a slow heavy push. Not a brisk recoil like a large magnum rifle.

I didnt care the the cheekpiece, I had a hard time getting a good view out the scope unless I put it low, and then the bolt wouldnt come back.

I like the Barrett style more myself.

I've had mine for a bit over 4 years and still love it. The only down side to the AR50 is its size and weight.

Higher rings solves this problem easily.

gotm4,

What scope/rings/base are you using on the AR?

I'll probably be getting one in a few weeks to beat the PRK ban and give a big fat "FU" to Arnold for passing it.

I did get higher rings for it, then ended up selling it the next day, having shot both I perfer the Barrett and would get it if I decide to get another.

Nightforce NXS 12x-42x 56mm scope with Nightforce medium rings. Armalite 15 degree mount. I wanted the scope as low as possible. because my wife is very petite (5ft even) I had to modify the cheekpiece a little to get it lower without the bolt running into it. Wasn't that hard though.

The way the stocks cheekpiece and buttplate are adjustable, its easy to get it to fit just about anyone.

I have not shot it yet, but my AR50 came with a small blotch over the chamber that looks like it was painted over. Is this standard marking from test firing?

The cheekpiece can't be adjusted for a left-handed shooter.

That problem inspired me to dispense with the buttstock and mount the rifle on an MG-42 tripod.



I sleep better at night knowing there's a milling machine in the garage.

they do make a left handed model, but i shoot my right handed varient off my left shoulder all the time with no problem. Its a great design.

Are you referring to the discoloration you can see on my rifle? The letter "A" is right in the middle of it.

I believe that's an artifact of the heat-treatment of the receiver. The metal is harder (I think) than the rest of the receiver, so it takes the Parkerizing differently.
