The Barrett M107, .50 Caliber, Semi Automatic sniper rifle gets my vote on the list of sniper rifles. You’ve seen it in several movies and if you’re into video games, you’ve probably fired it online. This military grade weapon has enough punch to put a hole through the metal back stop at your local shooting range.
The M107 fires a .50BMG round at about $10 each. It’s magazine is capable of holding ten rounds, so at $10 bucks a pop, blowing a hundred at the shooting range won’t be a problem.
The M107 has a range of nearly 1.5 miles yet due to it’s advanced recoil system, flash suppressor and larger barrel, it shoot like a true semi-automatic should.
The newest version of the Barrett M107 is the M107A1. It’s nearly four pounds lighter than the original M107 making it just over 30 lbs. It’s a heavy rifle if you compare it to the average semi-automatic rifle, such as an AR-15 which weighs in at around 7 or 8 lbs.
There’s not very many .50 caliber pistols being manufactured out there, and it’s a shame. So I did a bit of research and have listed the ones I could find below.
Government Industries .50 Caliber 1911
The 50GI is a low pressure round that doesn’t give you a big concussion blast like high pressure rounds such as the 10mm does. This makes it more tactically sound in a firefight. The 50GI case was designed with a .45ACP case head size which allows for a barrel and magazine swap so either round can be used in the same pistol with only a barrel and mag swap. This further increases its versatility and value.
Smith & Wesson .50 Caliber Revolver
This pistol comes with different barrel lengths. Personally, sometimes size does matter! But then again, if you have to conceal a pistol, you can enjoy the same quality 50 caliber pistol from Smith & Wesson but with a shorter barrel and different purpose.
Desert Eagle .50 Caliber Pistol
The Desert Eagle was the first 50 caliber pistol I was able to fire. When I think of a .50 caliber pistol, the Desert Eagle is always the first one that comes to mind. On top of that, my choice is always semi-auto over revolver.
AMT Automag IV .50 Caliber Pistol
I’m not so sure that AMT still manufactures this pistol, but there are some still out there on the market. It holds six rounds and would sell on the open market for around $800 US.
Grizzly WinMag .50 Caliber Pistol
I know for a fact that the Grizzly WinMag is no longer in production and all models are sold out. However, it seems as though Grizzly still offers parts for it. Grizzly seems to be moving more towards their .50 caliber rifles in production.
