Fancy a .50 BMG?

Just saw this one one GB, it looks like a fun "rifle" but I'm thinking the opening bid is a bit much - 16 grand?

I mean, it looks cool, a semi-auto Ma Deuce but for that kind of money you're getting into full auto neighborhoods...

Seems to me, anyway. Am I wrong? I could be, not exactly my area of expertise.

Ma deuces have become very pricey. The days of $1,500 parts kids are long gone. A kit alone these days is $8k.

If you want cheaper with sort of the same feel at shorter ranges you can go with a 1919 in .30-06 or .308. Cant wait to try mine out. Parts kids run between $1,500 and $1,700. Complete guns between $2800 and $3500.

I don't know much about them either...but it includes three mounts and 700rnds of ammo. That's gotta be worth something?

.50 BMG has never been a stupidly expensive round. So give them a $1400 margin at $2.00 per round. Lots of cheap .50 available.

My question is, do you want it because it's a Ma Deuce or because it's a 50 BMG? Having been in the Cav, I have shot tons of 50 cal using M2 and M85, so maybe I'm not being fully objective, but you're just looking for a 50, why not go with something that won't cost what a new car goes for?

You can get the newer model (M3HB .50 Ma Deuce) with easy change barrel system for 11 grand with free shipping from here. Just because a seller is asking for a certain amount on Gunbroker doesn't mean they are going to get it!

If I had the money, I'd want this because it's basically an M2 - I was radio, but the few times I got to fam fire the M2 were great fun!

No way I could ever afford a toy like that, though, so it's just window shopping and a little daydreaming for me...

The "Barrett Light 50 cal semi auto" is banned in Maryland. I think the M82A1 falls under that.

I have hear that but also heard it is available. I understand there is no such gun from Barrett called a 50 cal light.
