Accuracy International AX50

Accuracy International AX50

The .50 cal AX50 is an evolution of the battle-proven AW50 from Accuracy International. It updates the tough, reliable design for service in the years to come.

It features a 27-inch match-grade free floating barrel that is screwed into the action with a large-diameter 39mm thread. It is capped by a triple-chambered muzzle brake to reduce recoil, muzzle flash, and the dust eruption that plagues .50 cal gunners. The forend rail incorporates KeySlot attachment points for quickly and easily attaching modular rails for a wide array of optics, ranging accessories, bipods, and more.

The AX50 has a folding chassis to reduce the weapon length by 10 inches for ease of transportation and carry. The trigger is a two-stage adjustable unit that is quickly removable for easy cleaning. The stock incorporates a large buttpad that is adjustable for height and length of pull. It features an adjustable rear support and fully adjustable cheekpiece. It comes with one 5-round magazine.

    That looks awesome! I’m not even going to bother asking about the price though. Something tells me that I should just keep the Barrett M82 on my “someday” list.

    Did they ever produce a semi auto .50 rifle?

    • yodamiles

      Yep, it’s called AS 50. A bunch of people (China and Iran) copied the design and now you can find it all over the Middle East

    When I look at this gun I feel like General Tanz in The Night of the Generals looking at that Van Gogh.

    Holy Shhh….

  • L. Roger Rich

    I assume this has a shell holder bolt?

  • Charles Montgomery Rockson

    Good for that 2000 yard Elk!

    Heard rumors about an updated AX50 for a while now, looks like the stock on the AXMC line of rifles but slightly different. Any word on price?
