Default STATE ARMS 50 Caliber BMG.....

Looking at one, gonna cost less than $3,000.00 but with the new job i can afford it, and i like stuff that goes BOOM!, anyone ever had any experience with one, Barrett wants $3,500-$4,000.00 for a clip fed bolt action with scope, this is a single shot bolt action with scope.......

ill be getting the Rebel in stainless....
East Ridge Gun Company Inc. - Rifles - Rebel

with this stock....

the 3,000.00 also includes the price of a new high power scope also....


so what you guys think......should this be good enough for deer season?????

So are you planning on punching holes thru steel plate at 1600 yards or just want to have a 38 pound carry weapon?

LOGANSTANFORTH, That really is the best avatar ever. This is my first post, so i'll say hello. To your question, i'll say that i have shot a barret with a clamshell muzzle brake. The recoil was reduced to something like that of a 20ga shotgun, but i didn't care for the concusion and wouldn't enjoy shooting it for a match day. Maybe the fishgill brake would be better. I shot the barret at 1000 yards and will say that it does make the trip pretty quick. If you do get one i would be interested in your thoughts on it. Just how big are these deer you have? Dean

the recoil on the Rebel is like a 12 gauge with 3 inch magnums, with the fish mouth it should drop it some more, and im also thinking of a mercury recoil reducer in the stock and little softer butt plate.......for the couple hundred extra i might just go with the Big Bertha.....im also considering a the Barret JUST BECAUSE for a few hundred more i can get the bolt action clip fed.........

yes, low cost, high volume......just like this gun, shoot one bullet and it will kill 3 deer, 2 from the bullet and 1 from the sound.......

ill be using it for that too.....



Barret is listing MSRP for their rifles at 3,800.00 but my gun guy said he can get them ALOT cheaper than that, oh and yeah, this is the same guy that has a tank in his barn he is restoring, and a tracked missle loader under his car port, a field artillery cannon beside the garage, and a dodge power wagon ambulance setting beside the shop, a few scout cars, PLUS he has owned a few other tanks and military vehicles also............

Heres you a couple more options..

The LAR Big Bore "Grizzley" is an excellent gun..

GunsAmerica - LAR GRIZZLY BIG BORE - LAR/Grizzly Mfg. Co. Rifles - Guns For Sale & Gun Auctions B"H

LAR Grizzly Rifles at Impact Guns Home

50 Caliber Rifles at Impact Guns Home

And If you're not DEAD SET on a 50.. There is always the .458.. less expensive shells, and is actually a little more accurate that the .50..

Rock River Arms is where i bought my last AR from.. They have awesome quality.. next to only COLT.. IMO they are superior to Bushmaster.. Rock River Arms offers .458 at a really good price on the site.. but thru any descent dealer u can get it cheaper..


check them out.. Rock River Arms:
