The machine shop manager/owner does work for the company I am at. I have kept my mouth quiet while having been allowed to photo different phases of the work.

I hope all works out well for them, another firearm manufacturer on the block.

Best wishes,

Dave S

Pretty...But what advantage does it have over the Barret?

WHAT AN EVER LOVING MONSTER! 42 pounds? Right there with the Armalite AR50 in weight, just too bad that it can't get the AR50 designation as it's already taken by the Armalite AR50. Looks like in one picture it has the AR50's muzzle brake or a close copy of it. Funny thing is look how small the stupid muzzle brake looks on that rifle, on an Armalite AR50 the muzzle brake looks huge. I almost started to laugh when I saw the size of the 50's monster bolt carrier compared to an AR10's bolt carrier. Heck my AR10's bolt carrier is a solid massive chunk when compared to an AR15's carrier. I'd love to feel the bolt close on this thing. When I drop the bolt on my AR10 when chambering a round it has this really solid and heavy "KERCHUNK" sound. That 42 pound tank of a rifle must make a terribly solid sound at lock up, probably howitzer like.

The Barrett M82 isn't the most accurate .50 by "a long shot". [LOL] It uses a recoiling barrel and bolt system. Cobb50's Model 50A1 uses the AR's fixed barrel design and Armalite's muzzle brake. Dave S

At a recent gunshow, I saw a 50 cal upper receiver for an AR15 for sale. I'm not sure what brand or kind it was, but it was mounted onto a DPMS lower. I held it and that damn thing weighed a crapload. They also wanted a pretty penny for it.

I had been thinking about a .50 BMG and came upon this one the other day....It is bolt action single shot.....a pretty cheap way to get into a .50 I guess....I don't know anything about them. This one uses AR15 lower also. http://server50.hypermart.net/50bmg/001.htm the one in my link uses entire ar15 lower...bolts on just like ar15 upper...therefore no FFL to buy and pretty good price compared to Barrett and others

very sweet skyking, but just to remind you that one .50 bullet cost about as much, if not more than a box of M193 ammo. [:D]

Not the only 50BMG single shot upper out there, [url]http://ferret50.com/[/url] There's one or two other ones out there as well.

Man, don't I know it. I'll let people try out any guns I have at the range, but my buddy with a .50 will sell you a round or two if you want to give it a try...hehe...I love .223...it's more fun anyway
