New Guncrafter .50GI slide in NP3 landed today

Picked this up from another member. I think it's had 5 rounds through it. The slide has been finished in NP3, new set of Tru-Glo TFO's installed and came with ammo to boot. Will be a perfect match to go along with my G20, which is my primary woods sidearm. And with the Sufefire X300 on it, just might turn into my new nightstand gun. 11+1 rounds of .50GI for things that go bump in the night... I recently sold my hardchromed Guncrafter Model 1 1911 in .50GI, which I had basically turned into a safe queen. I actually think I will end up liking this more. At least as far as the .50GI round is concerned.

Congrats, that is a nice setup for home defense.

.50 GI is a very interesting caliber (15K psi) with moderate recoil comparable to 45ACP +P.

What mag config in 50GI has a capacity of 11 rounds? The standard 50GI mag from Guncrafter Industries for the G20/G21 is 8 rounds with a flat floorplate or 9 rounds with a +1 extension.

There is load data for .50 GI bullet weights up to 325gr that I know about, but I'm not aware of any factory ammo over 230gr.

At 325gr and 845 fps, 515 ft-lbf energy and Taylor KO 19, the .50 GI is getting up near the range of the beloved .460 Rowland (255gr HC-FN 1300 fps, 957 ft-lbf and Taylor KO 21) in mid .44 Magnum range.

I've got 185gr CHP, 230gr CHP, 275gr JHP and 300gr JFP for this one. I only shot 185 and 230gr CHP out of my Model 1. I just saw the 11 witness holes in the mags and called GC today after I posted and David told me that they didn't hold 11 rounds :(. He said it would hold 8 right now and after they got good and broken in, should work with 9 rounds. I'll be happy with 8+1 of .50GI for now.

Any sane human being should be happy with 8+1 of .50GI

I've often wondered if the Arredondo mag extension and spring for 45/10mm Glock mags would fit and function on the Guncrafter 50GI mags.

18+ rounds of 50GI

Yes the Arredondo extension and spring work it will give 12 rounds but the mag swells and will not fit in gun, I did take it down to 10 and all runs fine.

Rumor has it that .50GI makes half inch holes. :-)

Thanks for the feedback. Is the 50GI Guncrafter mag not fully metal lined, thus allowing it to swell?

I see the KRISS/Magpul Vector MagEx extensions work with 50GI too. That is good to know. We have several of the MagEx and Arredondo units for the two G30SF pistols in our household. They work great. 30 rounds of 45ACP or .460 Rowland in the MagEx units is a good way to stash a ready reserve of ammo around the house and in vehicles or a backpack.

That's going in. They're about an inch coming out.
