A few weeks ago I did a post on the M96 Windrunner from EDM arms. Since then I have continued in my endeavor to find new and innovative .50 BMG and other Anti Material rifles. Which brought me to the Leader 50 from Sabre Defense Industries.
The Leader 50 is a bullpup semi-automatic .50 BMG rifle weighing only 17 lbs (empty with a 10 round magazine) with an overall length of 39 inches and a barrel length of 24 inches. The innovation is found in the rifles operating system. The rifle uses a short-stroke gas piston operating system. Because of this feature the Leader 50 has less felt recoil than an M1 Garand.
The Leader 50 is expected to be available in September of 2011 with a predicted MSRP of 6,800.00 USD.
Not too bad compared to other .50 BMGs.
