Other than shooting at a specific target (man or machine) from almost a mile away, what does anyone really need a 50 caliber rifle for? Thankfully that question usually doesn’t come-up in the conversation, because if you are lucky enough to own a .50 caliber rifle like any of the ones in the video below, you’re just too darn happy to ask any silly questions.
One of the most iconic rounds in the world is the 50 caliber that is fired from the M-2 Browning Machine Gun, or as it is more simply known, 50 BMG. This mammoth cartridge saw extensive use by Western militaries and captured the hearts and minds of firearms and video game enthusiasts the world over (I can’t imagine why).
Today, the market for 50 BMG rifles is mostly in the United States military and law enforcement, but there are rifles that civilians can own. The market is rather specific, probably because practical uses are limited and the ammo is insanely expensive. But anyone lucky enough to own a .50 BMG rifle certainly has ‘bragging rights’ and why not?
With that said, there are plenty of match-grade rifles for the average citizen who wants to own one of the largest rifles out there – you just have to be prepared to pay for them, because they sure aren’t cheap.
So, with all that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the best .50 BMG rifles out there for sale (if you have the cash that is).
