This rifle is the newest incarnation of the wildly popular AR-50 chambered for the powerful 50 BMG cartridge. A single shot bolt action rifle featuring a unique octagonal receiver bedded down into a V-shaped stock. Designed to be an economical answer for the challenges of long range shooting the AR-50A1 is amazingly accurate and with its massive fluted muzzle brake it has a very gentle recoil. The AR-50A1 is a highly refined rifle which is a stark and refreshing difference that maintains its superiority over its competition.
Armalite’s great .50 has been refined with smoother action attractive new bolt stop and even greater strength than the original AR-50. The same great accuracy but now even more beautiful.
