Just like the title says.
Watch that shit nignogs
i'm watchin it to see that crazy .50 cal rifle they have in the previews.
I'm excited, been seeing previews all weekend for it
what channel? what time?
I'm at work
Can't even record it.
I'll be watching!
So what is the weapon from the commercials that projects a lightning bolt and then bends the metal plate outwards and heats it up red hot?
I'm not sure it is a .50.
I believe it is the 20mm from South Africa called the NTW-20.
It is impossibly bad-assed.
its on its on
its on discovery channel
Ok, so I was wrong.
If a Barrett costs 8k, I couldn't imagine what that AS-50 would cost.
The local dealer here has a Barrett for about 3k, I believe...
I just got done watching it. It was badass. They had a semi-automatic .50 cal sniper rifle. They did awesome demonstrations of it going through concrete and smashing some melons. They then switched to armor piercing rounds that went through two layers of tank armor. The rifle was accurate up to 1.2 miles within a 30" grouping.
They also had a bunch of other cool stuff as well.
Sheet steel /= tank armor
Badass show though.
I thought it was a .50 rifle? Isn't that what he said it was?
It was a .50
The bolt action one is 13k.. almost dont even want to know what the as-50 is..
From what I read on a couple sites, the msrp is supposedly around $17500
this is OT
you post pics, then discuss
i don't get it, its just another 50 cal...nothing that great, 27lbs....my 50cal is 26.9lbs, woopty doo
its not "heavy" its average for the lighter spectrum 50 cals
and barrett is not at all best quality, they are best "name" 50 cal out thre, mcmillan bros and a few others make much higher quality rigs, in fact the barrett is considered to be rather cheaply made compared to most 50 cals
this is not including the dumb serbus and ar conversion kits, those are just toys and not even worth mentioning
the AS-50 looks bulky.
I'd rather get a Cheytac or a McBros .50 and use the money on optics and ammo.
Its clearly an automatic sniper rifle that can bring an entire base power plant to its knees
