    After wanting one for years, I finally broke down and bought one. It is a great way to end a day at the range.

    Interesting and useless at the same time. You got the wrong one, go for the gold w/the tiger strips and teh beamzzz yo.

    Is that an older one, I thought Isreali Industries or something was making them now ?

    Gratz on the hand canon.
    I had the 44 mag. Sold it because it would not feed well.

    When I finally got that safe open (that I got for cheap), it had seven (7) full boxes of Speer .50 AE ammo in it, unopened, and one (1) box w/ 8 rounds in it.


    I'm curious as to what they're worth.

    I think a guy at my club has a DE in .50 AE.

    I have the Mark VII in .44 mag. I love it!
    Yes -- it's very expensive to shoot. I'm guessing your .50 AE will be even worse.
    But there's nothing like the feel of emptying a complete magazine of big-caliber through a semi-auto. FUN!

    I can get .50AE ammo at my local gun store for $1.50 a round. The cheapest I found online so far is $1.25 a round.

    This is a new one. From the reading I've done they have been made in the USA since 2009 by Magnum Research.

    Should still be tagged as IMI, but yes they are made by Magnum Research.

    They have appeal to me but as I have a couple S&W .500 Mags, they aren't on my "buy" list. Don

    Always wanted to shoot the .50 AE. If only you could get a .50 AE Glock conversion. That would be alot more appealing than the .50 GI!!
