As of late, it seems that large caliber pistols are very popular with the public, quite a few folks own pistols like the 10mm, S&W.460 Mag, and the S&W.500 Mag. And while these guns are cool, it was inevitable that somebody was going to up the ante and sure enough, someone did!
I wonder, just why someone thought that making a ‘pistol’ that fires a .50 BMG would be a good idea…seriously.
Since I’m not here to judge anyone, let’s get down to it okay?
The firearm in Brandon’s video is made by NOREEN FIREARMS and they’re from Montana and yes, it fires a .50 BMG, ‘but’, the company doesn’t call it a ‘handgun’, they do call it a rifle.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
ULR .50 BMG Mini RifleMSRP: $1,699.00
This single shot bolt action rifle was designed with simplicity in mind. The single shot shell holder bolt allows for easy and quick reload, and maintains the simplistic nature of the rifle.This single shot bolt action rifle was designed with simplicity in mind. The single shot shell holder bolt allows for easy and quick reload, and maintains the simplistic nature of the rifle. The ULR was designed to do one thing; fire large caliber rounds further than most people are capable of. The Noreen Design muzzle brake help to drastically relieve shooter stress, and easily make this rifle an all-day shooter at the range. Minimalistic billet aluminum stock.
Timney Sportsman Triggers feature a lightweight alloy housing and hardened steel working surfaces. They are lightweight, rugged and durable. The trigger pull is adjustable from 2 to 4 lbs and is adjustable for Sear Engagement, Overtravel and Pull weight.
And here is a little History about this outfit:
Peter Noreen has been a gunsmithing legend for the last quarter century. He made his mark custom-building scaled up Pre-64 Model 70 Winchester actions for use in heavy caliber rifles designed for taking the world’ s dangerous game.
Phil Noreen grew up in his father’s shop, learning the rifle-building trade from the ground up. A shared passion for ultra long range shooting led the father/son team to create the first Noreen Ultra Long Range Rifle in 2007.
Their ideas evolved, and in early 2010, the Noreens introduced the “Bad News” 338 Lapua Ultra Long Range Semi-Automatic Rifle.
The first rifle to utilize the popular 338 Lapua loading in the proven AR platform, the Noreen Bad News has been widely praised in tactical circles for its range, power, performance and versatility.
In 2013 the Noreens unveiled an AR style rifle called the BN36, in 30-06, 270, and 25-06 to the public.
