AR50 compared to a Beretta 92FS and Colt LE6920:

Armalite AR-50

A size comparison of the AR50-A1B to a Colt LE 6920 5.56 and Beretta 92FS 9mm along with 3 rounds that each gun shoots.

The AR-50 rifle utilizes weight and a large fluted muzzle brake to provide very mild recoil. The AR-50 weighs approximately 34 pounds and is a single shot bolt action rifle. The barrel is extremely thick and rigid to minimize the "whip" effect of rifle barrels which flex when fired. The receiver features Armalite's unique octagonal design which strengthens the receiver against flexing. The receiver is bedded to the V-shaped stock while the barrel is free floated above the forend. The three piece AR-50 stock is constructed from aluminum and features an extruded forend, machined skeleton butt stock with removable and vertically adjustable butt plate. This rifle has been recently updated to the AR50-A1B with smoother action, attractive new bolt stop, reinforced muzzle brake, and even greater strength than the original AR-50. The AR50-A1B is designed to be an economical answer for the challenges of long range shooting. The AR-50A1B is amazingly accurate and with its massive fluted muzzle brake, it has a very gentle recoil. The current specs on the AR50-A1B are: Model: AR-50A1B Caliber: .50 BMG Barrel: 30" Chrome moly, 8 Groove Rifling Twist: RH 1:15" Muzzle Device: Highly Efficient Multi-Flute Recoil Check, Very Moderate Felt Recoil. Threading: 1"-14 Upper Receiver: Modified Octagonal Form, Grilled & Slotted for Mil STD Scope Rail with Boss to Engage Cross-Slot on Receiver Bolt: Triple Front Locking Lug Ejector: Spring Loaded Plunger, Automatic Ejection Extractor: Sako Type Trigger: Schilen Standard Single Stage, Approximate 5 lbs Pull Stock: 3 Section Stock: Extruded Forend, Machined Grip with Vertical Grip, Forged and Machined Removable Buttstock Buttplate: Vertically Adjustable, Specially Built for Heavy Calibers Overall Length: 58.5" Without Buttstock: 49 3/4 inches Weight: 34.8 lbs
