My had this half inch gun built. Do you think it will take an elk down? he is 6'3" if that helps you to estimate the size of this 40# rifle.

Looks like a rifle for giants!

Good grief! what the heck is it? Heck even if its a non fireing ''replica'' (on steroids) the weight alone would kill an elk if you were strong enough to swing it like a bat. That would probably kill the poor guy packing it LONG before he ever got to shoot anything with it.......does it come with tracks and a motor underneath it?

It is a .50 BMG Mcmillian action and stock, Krieger Barrel, and a horace vision scope. Not sure what the muzzle brake is, looks like a coke can with holes in it and painted black.

Re: Will this work for elk?

Your dad reminds me of one of the Oakridge Boys. Actually he kinda looks like he should have that hurkin' rifle in the scabbord alongside a big ol' Harley. Somebody you dont wanna make mad, but he has something in his eyes that says he's probably a gental giant at the same time.
Thats a fitting rifle for a big man with a ''Harley- stash''. Awesome. Just plain ol' awesome. I love it.

HAHA Winmag he will be thrilled when I tell him about the Harley-stach. He is a big Harley guy, he has 2 of them and a chopper!

You won't need to pull the trigger, any critter looks at that gun and it'll lay down right then.
