 rofl yeah, sorry (not really) JH.

Figured youíd appreciate a nice neighborhood-produced rifle.

A 50bmg has been a bucket list item for me too but the Barretts are way beyond what I want to pay. This no frills single shot is right up my alley. At $3-4+ per round I really donít need a semi-auto so I can dump $30-40 down range in as many seconds  :o rofl

Why did I click on this thread!?

Belgrade is not far enough away...to not tempt my tax refund from vaporizing next year.

A .50 cal is kind of a bucket list thing for me. I want to be able to explode pumpkins in my yard from my normal shooting spot on the side of the neighboring mountain. The neighbor's reactions would be hilarious.

I will have to keep an eye out locally to see if any pop up.

My wife is a little grumpy now.

Jebus....  only an 18x scope!     :o

Yeah, I guess if I get proficient at 500-600 yards I can always sell the scope and up the magnification  thumb1

$2050 MSRP!  :o  (I know you didn't pay that)

Seems like an interesting hunk of steel there.  32 lb is 4 SKSs!  :o  They have a little video on their website:


Let us know how she shoots...what does 50BMG run nowadays, $3+ per round?  Do'h!  doh1

Nope, I paid $1197 + WA sales tax (= $1300). $2050 rifle with ~50 rounds through it, $600 scope, $100 Plano roller case.

You can find some remanufactured ammo for under $3 per round. I ordered some PMC at about $3.35 per round delivered from Budís. 50bmg will never be cheap since thereís a lot of metal and powder involved.

Well, I'm in my 50s, so what the heck, I need a 50  :))  Besides my "modern rifle budget" hasn't been touched in years  :)

Who hasn't lusted over a 50BMG Barrett or similar rifle but thought they still needed their late model car to get to work. Well, I spotted this single shot rifle at the LGS at a "can't say no" price that oughta scratch that 50 itch.

Specifications
34" barrel
8 groove, RH, 1:15
32 lbs (w/o scope)
single shot
integral scope
integral rail
Timney trigger
Leupold VX-2 6-18x42 scope

Recoil reduction
32 lbs  :))
big honkin' muzzle brake  :o
big honkin' Kick-Eez butt padd  :P
stiff springs built into the collapsible buttstock  banana time

Yup, it has an austere industrial look to it, but it quickly grew on me. Nothing impractical, just what is needed. Noreen has a good rep and they're not too far from JH's neck of the woods up in Belgrade Montana.

Chinese SKS (Commercial) / Bubbad Commercial Para???
« Last post by echo1 on August 14, 2018, 04:53:56 AM »
Hi fellas,

Just finalized an acquisition for this little gem.
https://forums.gunboards.com/showthread.php?1043761-Chinese-Norinco-SKS-Camouflage-1971-SPF&highlight=sks

I just picked it up over on the GB forum. Sellers pictures and description had me thinking it was a KSI with the ground bayo lug & rod guides. In the additional close up pictures I requested, the cut job and FSB install looks factory, so now I'm thinking it's Bubbas handy work on a commercial Para. The bayo slot was filled in, the furniture painted camo, and the ground FSB looks parked. He was asking $475 but we horse traded. JPE, Pomona, CA was the importer, and I'm not sure if they had Paras made.

Wadda ya think??  Signs of a sophisticated and restrained Bubba? This one came out of Arizona, as did my previous Para. PAX
