The ArmaLite AR-50 is a bolt action, single shot rifle manufactured by Armalite containing a distinct octagonal receiver embedded into an aluminum stock.

The AR-50 utilizes a removable buttstock and a modified M16 type vertical pistol grip for ease of transport. It uses the .50 BMG caliber ammunition used by the United States military's M2 Browning machine gun. Most .50 BMG rifles are frequently considered Anti-materiel rifle for military use, however the AR-50 has more recently been adopted to extreme anti-personnel long-range sniping.

The AR-50 offers a relatively affordable entry level rifle into the world of .50 caliber weaponry. The AR-50 is not cheap by any means. The price of the rifle is $2,999 MSRP, however this price is considerably less expensive than many of its peers. The military has never adopted the rifle, however the AR-50 was manufactured and designed for civilians as a long range target rifle.

At approximately 59.5 inches (151 cm) in length and 34 pounds (15.5 kg), this rifle is manufactured and designed for use with a bipod. Recoil is considerably mild due to the excellent muzzle brake and the weight of the AR-50. One should have exceptional hearing protection when observing and firing the weapon as is common with any .50 BMG caliber firearm.

Great rifle to buy for a single shot 50 bmg. Can get one for about $3,000 without scope. It has a 15 MOA rail on the rifle to mount a scope. Very accurate.

I stumbled across a site a while back that had soft cases for the AR-50 that would fit inside the big Pelican 1750. Now I can't find it. Anyone seen this site please let me know.
