I too have been thinking of getting into the 50 bmg game. Though I do not know if I could afford to feed it. If you come across anything Chip let me know.

These can be pricey toys...

As I recall there was an after-market AR Upper that turned the platform into a single shot 50.

Cabelas sold them, and they weren't too bad...

Grizzly makes several rifles too. (http://www.largrizzly.com/web/guest;jsessionid=2BAE2EA472D87861C412725283A665B0)

Call Jaquas, they have a rifle and ammo that was traded. The rifle is not included in the gun list files but I know that they want to sell it. It is located in the stores demo rack because of its size. Good Luck - Tom

I have a State Arms Titan Bench model available. I also have all the goodies, the big press, die set, big dump powder measure, and a bunch of factory rounds too.

Also some Hornady 750 AMAX, and some primers.














I would rather see it all go at once, but it's a pretty large chunk.

There is always a good market for the accessories and components so If anyone wants just the gun I won't have a problem with the rest.

What has been happening is the 50 guys want all the stuff, but since they already have guns they don't need another.


Email or PM if interested.

EDM makes a 50 cal called the windrunner. My son has one-supposedly the most accurate one out there. It is a 5 shot bolt action. Sure is a crowd pleaser when you light it off. He also has a B.O.R.S. system sitting ontop of a mark 4 scope. I think you can buy a new car for what he has tied up in it. Mike

No.. most of my barrels are 36" .. little on no taper.. All except the LRS.. At 30 plus pounds each..Recoil.. even with the 1012 grain Russian 12.7 bullets is rather mild.. More like a long irresistable push.. than a crack.. I'd rather shoot my 50 BMG..than a light weight 300 Win mag..

Halfmile, PBB is right, the EDM weighs 36lbs, & with a muzzle brake it is more like a shove. I shot a friend of mines' 7mm mag abolt that made the 50 BMG feel like a .410. Mike

All depends what you want to do with it.. In my earlier days.. my 500 A-Square did all I ever needed.. out to 500 yards.. I used the pulled 50 BMG bullets or the 700 grain spitzer boattail bullets.. I use to make them up single shot.. on the M-98 or P-17 action.. 30" bull barrel.. Fun.. and cheap to shoot.. Brass is formed out of 378 or 460 Weatherby cases..
