I take it you mean their AR line of rifles.

For the money i would prolly go larue or pof or someone else who has been doing high end ar15 longer. For that sort of money i would personally let others be their test monkies until they getmore experience at it

The real question is, Why not?
I'd take one in a heart beat. I'd probably only fire about 10 rounds per year, but damn it, I'd have fun with those 10 rounds.

That's my point. It's expensive, violent and harsh which translates to collecting dust. If I didn't have the financial restrictions that I do and was into long range stuff I'd feel better about it sitting in the back corner of the safe.

That's the sentiment I'm talking about. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) there's no way I could get one, much less feed it.

Default Got One?

Nope.


Got two barretts, 99 and 82A1. They make a rugged rifle. The only problem I have ever had was with an extractor and they made it right by mailing me one that day.

Easy to Maintain, easy to break down and clean. (Full Shop rag maybe needed for barrel patch) Absolute bitch to haul around.

Feeding? Not a problem. 50 Bmg is getting cheaper everyday. You can purchase surplus for less than $2.00 a round. If and when you make the jump -get some good glass, as your going to need it.

Better yet? Tac 50 by Macmillian I have shot one mile with it. It is the difference between driving a Chevy and a Mercedes. The Chevy will certainly get you where you are going, the Mercedes will get you there quicker and in great style.

I have shot three different motor blocks and even API did not got through them. the round will got through the water jacket and into and through the cylinder, but not even one went through the second water jacket. Your findings and observations may be different.

I will close with a quote from "TJ Pilling" from Tiger Valley in Waco Tx. "Owning a 50 BMG is like a prom date with big tits, everyone wants to look and wished they were you. Jmac
