WANTED: WTB Armalite AR-50A1


Recommended Posts

I got a deal on some 50BMG ammo a couple years ago, but have nothing to shoot it in. I would love a Barrett M82-A1, but I'm pretty sure my wife would quite literally kill me if she found out I spent that much on a rifle. So I've decided I want an Armalite AR-50A1 instead. I thought I would see if anyone has one they would part with before I go buy a new one. Don't need glass since I bought a scope for the potential rifle last year.

So, anybody got a spare one gathering dust they want to sell?

For the love of God man, show your wife the youtube video “My 50 cal exploded”- by Kentucky Ballistics.  After seeing this video, my wife immediately bought me my new Barrett M-82A & had me sell my single shot bolt action .50 -there are even sequels to that video.  I’m not a slight built guy by any standard, but I don’t think that I would have survived such an incident. Semi-auto has a lot of built in protection against catastrophic drama like that.  Go luck & please be safe shooting my favorite caliber.  I know that I have an all day smile when I do 10 round mag dumps into my old bus & car targets 😉

Nothing but smiles shooting a 50😀

Have you touched or shot a Armalite?

A friend had an Armalite a few years ago that I shot a couple of times. Like I said above, I would really prefer a Barrett m82, but rather not spend that amount of $$ on a rifle that, in all reality, will see very little use.  I've been kicking myself for missing out on the one that sold here for a great price a few weeks ago.

You must be talking about Joe's gun that sold here, I remember seeing bare bone 82's selling a few yrs ago cheap.
