I used to have an AR-50. Very well made rifle. Mild recoil and a blast to shoot. You should be able to get one under 4g.
If you are serious about getting into a .50, you should join Fifty Caliber Shooter Association

Great group of guys and are very helpful in figuring out what gun fits your needs best.

You can find the Armalite AR50's from $2600 to around $2800 I wouldnt spend any more than that on one. I was going to buy one off of CTD a while back but they are currently out of stock. Best way to find one I think is to either look on gunbroker or just google what you are looking for and edit it for shopping and go through and find one from a nice store you are familiar with or that has great feedback.

Brand new Serbu BF50 bolt gun can be had from Serbu in the $2200 range I believe. Yep, standard rifle is that price. It's a single shot.
