The rifle is only a few months old. It is the new version as shown in this information. I haven't fired it much, but the last time I did I shot a 2.6" 5 round group at 400 yards (.60MOA). It is a very accurate rifle, and only kicks as much as a 20 guage. Its a blast to shoot. The Armalite is used by many 1000 yard competitiors at FCSA santioned matches (It not only competes, but also wins matches).
The pictured Leupold scope described below is also for sale, but for another $1000.00.
The $2800.00 price is for the rifle , 15 Minute Sight Base, Owners Manual, Ear Plugs, Limited Lifetime Warranty, a pair of high Nightforce rings in 30mm, armalite's AR-50 case as shown on their website, a .50 cal Dewey cleaning rod, a specially made AR-50 bore guide, .50 cal brushes, and a .50 cal jag.
Buyer pays actual shipping cost to their FFL.
Don't miss out on your chance to own a "big fifty".
Information from Armalite's website:
AR-50A1 .50 BMG, BLACK
Qty: On Back Order
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.
