Armalite's AR-50A1 is the newest incarnation of the wildly popular AR-50 chambered for the powerful 50 BMG cartridge. 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 single-shot action is based on a unique octagonal receiver bedded into a patented sectional aluminum stock. The three section stock features an extruded forend and a machined grip frame with a forged and machined removable buttstock. The front sight base has a modified octagonal form, grilled and slotted for MIL-STD 1913 scope rail. The trigger is a Shilen standard single-stage model with an approximately 5-pound pull. The barrel is constructed from manganese phosphated steel and the receiver is hard anodized aluminum. A 15-minute sight base and a set of ear plugs are included.
