50BMG Uppers for AR lowers!!!

Anyone out there have a 50 upper for their AR lower reciever?

I am looking into getting one because I want a bolt action. I already have a Barrett MK82 but want a single to round out the collection.

I am leaning towards Wastons Weapons and Ferrett.

Any input or just plain old comments on this subject is greatly appreciated.

Once 50BMG never back!!! 223 seems like an air rifle!!!!

I personally wouldn't want to fire a 50BMG with a light weapon. I have a Barrett 99 and have had onlookers refuse the offer of a chance to fire it after the muzzle blast from the compensator blew their hats off. Of course I made sure that they were positioned just right and I was using API.The first time I fired it my brother was spotting on the table next to me and it toppled his scope.

.50 Ferret

First Time poster!

I love my Ferret .50!!!

I got bitten by the .50 bug at work, using first the Barret M82 and later the MacMillan Tac-50. When I retired, I got my Ferret.

Not only is it a top quality, simple, accurate .50, but the service / support I get from Spider Firearms (makers of the Ferret) is first class.

I don't reccomend very many things, but I do endorse this one!

Cheers,

Ben Klick

I was reading a add for the MAG-50 single shot upper for the AR.
The say that they commisioned Mark Serbu to design it. They have it listed for $995.00 (order direct, NO FFL REQUIRED).

The web page is listed as http://www.mmag.biz but I have not been able to access it. I am wondering if they are still in business.

The add was in Very High Power magazine (2004-2 pg #9)

Anyone heard of them or the product.

Gee, I just can't figure out why so many firearms folks that I know who shoot at ranges don't give a damn if the .50s go the way of the Dodo bird or not. Frankly, I won't sit within five positions of one when I go to the range.

I've seen some .50 guys fire a few rounds and then go over to their fellow .50 shooters and giggle 'cause the folks unlucky enough to be within 3 to 5 positions of the guy have gotten up and left the their firearm and ammo on the table. I don't think those folks think it's funny...I imagine they think it is rude and inconsiderate.

Sometimes I wonder if legislation to limit or control .50s is a 2nd Amendment issue of Gun Control or just Pest Control...for me the jury's still out on this one.

I would be truly embarrassed to associate with these indivuduals. This type of activity is rude and inconsiderate. Why must the few(or many it seems) irresponsible individuals always mess everthing up for the common person?

DenverDick:

Any guy that fires a 50 on a line without informing the people next to him is a A-hole. I will never fire my 50 without the whole firing line being aware that I am hot on line. It is not funny blasting anyone with the muzzle blast and if these people are doing that they truely do not represent the base of 50 shooters I know. We are very considerate to all those on the line and promote the sport of shooting. Hell, most of the time at the range I let people shoot it to get them excited about the sport. I have lit the fire under many a people and the past two trips to the range friends have shot it more than me. I let some high school kid fire my MK82 and his father vidoe taped it. The smile on his face when he nixed a 1 gallon jug of water a 600 yards was worth every penny. He is hooked for life. The 50 is no worse than any other caliber, the person behind the trigger is the weapon the gun is a tool.

Did you ever hear of the ALS 50 bmg that goes on top of the ar15 lower receiver this upper is awsome to say the least as for some folks who don't really like the ar15 lower idea other then for fun I feel the same way I designed and built my own lower which took me 1.5 years to fabricate off the top of my head and just got to fire with the 50 upper last week well let me tell you nothing short of phenominal this lower that I built turned this rifle into a world class tack driver now given it was only 350 yards but one bullet after the next right thru the same round hole at 350 yards is nothing to sneeze at!!! The recoil on this gun now with upper and lower together with solid aluminum butt plate and me wearing a t-shirt was like shooting a .223.

While I can't justify the cost of a .50 for myself... I don't have any issues with anyone else (who can legally own guns) having and shooting them. It's not like they can sit there all day long shooting 1000 or even 100 rounds. That would just cost too damn much! Then I'd have the last laugh on how much money they went through.

How can anyone not notice someone pulling and setting up a .50 on the range? I do have to admit it is really hard if not impossible to shoot next to someone who is shooting a .50.

The only reason it's been banned in California is because it's a gun they think they can justify and convince people as being evil... that and it's a gun. We shouldn't own guns in the first place.

As the proud owner of three .50 BMG rifles I dont think this is a good idea. A 50 bmg needs the WHOLE firearm designed to hold up to the power of these rounds. My Barrett 82 ( my first ) has been sent back to Barret 3 times for problems due to " recoil issues" I have not had a problem with it in a long time but I hate to think the stresses this round would put on a ar lower. If you want a 50 bmg get a good one to start with. The armalite ar50 is the most solid firearm I have ever owned I have put MANY a round through it and have not had problem one. These rifles dont come in at 30 pounds case heavy is KEWL heavy is safe..
