    Default 50 cal conversion kit for ar-15

    Anyone use the Beowulf conversion kit? Thoughts? Or do you just choke up the cash for a Barret. (Don't know if I could actually save for that long)

    You realize .50 Beowulf and .50 BMG are a different round, right? The Barret uses .50 BMG.

    I went with the Beowulf as I already have .223.





    Ammo Discussion


    And Lars is the way to go. He has ammo and uppers on order all the time so you can usually get stuff faster than ordering from Alexander Arms directly.

    Parts list:

    NES lower with Anvil parts kit installed.
    Magpul triggerguard
    ACE Stock
    Hogue Grip
    Full Floating .50 Beowulf precision upper
    Carbon Fiber foreend
    Beowulf sized dustcover
    Harris Bipod
    USMC Nylon sling
    EoTech sight

    A clip is not a magazine, a mag is not a clip.
    Neither is a grip a stock, and "stock" does not mean grip.
    A bullet is not a cartridge, nor is the converse true.
    Folks should be more careful when they use the words they do.
    A revolver has a cylinder, but only one you see,
    and cylinders have chambers, five or six most commonly.
    I do not wish to nitpick, but improvement would be seen,
    if we could bring ourselves to say exactly what we mean.

    Yes sir, I do realize. But thank you. Never had any experience with either round.
