Unit of Measure:
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.

    Don't See Any Better, anywhere

    Posted by Marty on Nov 16th 2015

    Had mine about three years. It is such a joy to shoot, and the accuracy right out of the box surprised me, as an amateur shooter. The first time out, with only two minor scope adjustments, we were knocking off old propane bottles at 216yds. The people at Armalite have a sense of humor, as well. The owner's manual came in a large ziploc bag. Inside, along with the manual was a complimentary set of foam earplugs AND a packet of Tylenol! (the manual said the report would be loud. you'll know when it fires! ) The pride of my collection!

    Armalite AR50A1B

    Posted by Zipp on May 24th 2014

    I see many postings comparing Barrett's to the AR50's and others. No disrespect to Barrett, as they are a fine piece of engineering; but the AR50's will shoot circles around them time after time. That's a fact. Go check out FCSA tournaments if you don't believe me, just to see the accuracy comparison under controlled circumstances. Many get into circular arguments about accuracy potential at extreme ranges. But not all of these chat posters on the net have any real hard field data to back up their opinions. The right shooter, the right ammo and load development, the right break-in procedure, and the right barrel care. With these items in check, I say the AR50 keeps up with any 50 out there in the accuracy department, including the Tac 50. For my money, the AR50A1B is a lot of gun.

    Armalite AR50A1B

    Posted by Zipp on May 24th 2014

    This 50 is at the top of the accuracy spectrum. With the right ammo and proper break in procedure; I don't know that you will find better. The AR50A1B is smooth with an action like a bank vault.This 50 has a valid place on the tournament shooting line. Of course this thing is a heavy beast, without question. Even so, when it comes to shooting accurate groups and assisting in taming recoil, the value of the weight is clear. Generally speaking, most shooters will not shoot as consistently with a rifle that pounds you every time you pull the trigger. It's simple biology.

    One bad boy

    Gun is super accurate and with the weight and break it kicks less than my 338 lapua just a little louder though X 10 would highly recommend a great rifle at 1/3 the price of the Barrett m82

    What the hell is wrong with this guy from Houston? Who shoots a doe with a .50 caliber sniper rifle? That's pretty sick, dude. and not sick in the cool way, as in, you should probably get some help

    Awesome Gun

    Posted by Brandon on Apr 6th 2012

    This gun is amazing - very accurate, high quality, smooth bolt. the only con would be the weight - but that probably is one of the reasons the recoil is so minor. After 30 rnds, I had no pain in my shoulder. Don't get me wrong the muzzle blast sends a shock wave through your body. Armalite should ship it with a case - it comes in a cardboard box.

    Awsome Gun

    Posted by JDog on Jun 2nd 2011

    This is an awsome gun. I have owned my AR 50L for 2 years. The muzzle break is awsome at reducing felt recoil. It is similar to shooting a 308 win. The muzzle noise is ear shattering. This gun is very accurate. Ive shot 5 inch groups at 1000 yards when equiped with Badger Ordinance max 50 rings and Nightforce 5.5x22x56. Last year I shot a doe at 720 yards. I have the ISnipe app which i also reccomend. Great gun, especially for the price!
