Have you figured out which one you're getting?? WE CRAVE PICTURES!

I was looking at .50s last night after reading here, they get spendy!!! I only shoot them when my rich uncle issues me ammo, which is rare, but memorable.

Barrett M107a1. Easy weapon to use. Put over 1,000 rounds down range.

You will love it. The accuracy is great with the AR-50's. Take a video camera and record the first shot you fire off. It is always nice to see a new 50 owner fire off the first shot with their new toy. I shot many before I finally bought my first. The smile from shooting your own will last for a few hours if not a day or two.

LOL, I was curious if they still packaged Tylenol with them.. I heard about it from my buddy who bought his.

The muzzle brake didn't bother me on the ar-50 I shot. It is the same as my Bushmaster or the 82A1 I shot. It is only a problem at an angle away from the shooter. All 50's have this issue unless they are suppressed. Just the nature of the muzzle brake. The AR-50 is far easier on your shoulder, it has a very very effective brake on it. Enjoy man, you will have to post up some videos of you shooting it.

Shot the AR50 for the first time this weekend... one word:

UHHHHHHHHHHMAZING!

As for the recoil? It felt less than my AR-15/7.62!

Went through the recommended break-in of 10 rounds, cleaning after each single round (though I did shoot the first two without cleaning in between, I just couldn't help it!).... now per instructions I can go through 5 rounds at a time between cleanings for the next 15 rounds or so. Can't wait!!!

Thanks again for all the help, I definitely feel like I made the right choice!!!

Congratulations, they are a blast....umm quite literally. I was addicted years ago after touching off my first round in an M82. I still giggle like a little boy everytime I shoot mine.

Congrats.

I'm just trying to figure out how you were able to stay off the range since you bought it in August. I have the patience of a kid with a new toy when I get my hands on a new one...

What optic did you fit it with?

Congrats, I own an AR-50 also and yes, they are awesome. What scope did you end up putting on it? I have the 5.5-22x56mm NXS and it works great out to 2000 yards. I'm posting from my phone right now or else I would post some pics.

Put some up so we can check out your new toy.

Forgot to add, if you have any questions on it just ask. The AR-50 has a lot of aftermarket accessories for it.

If your 50 would be used at 100 yards or less, a .500 Nitro Express double rifle from H & H with a 1x scope; post reticule.
