In the 30 years since then, I have built hundreds of them. My collection is composed of multiple configurations in numerous calibers from 22 long rifle to 50 Beowulf and nearly every one in between. Quite a few of those parts came from Palmetto State Armory. I have found this South Carolina-based company to be both affordable and ultra reliable and have been buying from them since they opened about ten years ago.
I wanted to try out a few of their products and PSA was more than happy to oblige. Mainly, I wanted to lay hands on their ARs. There are no gaps between upper and lower receivers.
The carbine has an adequately staked M16 bolt carrier, and we like the fit and finish on the rifle.

MLOK rails can be added to the handguard for the attachment of light, lasers, bipods and other accessories.
The buttstock even came with a QD Quick Detach swivel installed.

The rifle is available with black or tan furniture; we just liked the look of the green. As an iron sight shooter, we prefer the fixed front sight post, although some shooters who run dedicated optics or collapsible sight sets may not like this configuration.
We wanted the accuracy and thought this would make an excellent choice for shooters who run either irons or optics. The trigger had a nice crisp feel to it, and when we pulled it out to see if it was an aftermarket type, it looked like a carefully polished Mil-spec trigger.
This is a factory part that I usually recommend changing on most factory ARs, but Palmetto did such a beautiful job on these that I would suggest leaving it installed. It's an almost complete rifle. That is, there was no rear sight so if you think you can unbox this one and run to the range, you will need a rear sight or an optic mounted, first.

.50 Beowulf® Product Overview
The cartridge has obviously become popular with self-defense communities, but its performance has also found a place in the hunting world, especially in tight and overgrown situations. Factory loads for the. Most bullet weights fall in the gr category, and there are much larger options available for subsonic rounds. As you can see, both of these large bore cartridges are much larger than your typical 5.

Neither of these rounds has a SAAMI rating for case capacity or max pressure and the handloading references out there for these two rounds vary. We have listed the averages for max capacities we have found from reliable sources here, and we see that they hold similar amounts of powder and they are also fitted with similar weight bullets. Though it is not rated by a governing body, the max pressure for both of these rounds heeded by hand loaders is 35,psi.
Both of these cartridges fill a very specific niche within the shooting world, and because of this, a number of options you have for factory loads are very limited when compared to more popular defense and hunting rounds.

Aug 28, 1. I decided to start my first AR build!! I am planning a Zombie Destroyer in. I have had the Spikes Tactical stripped lower with the Punisher logo for a whole. I also ordered the Spikes Enhanced Lower Kit and are awaiting the arrival of that.
The gun is going to be all black with dark earth accents. Today I started by painting the graphics on the lower I am using Testors paint and am not careful with staying in the lines. This is the result after i wiped the excess away with thinner. After this i put another couple of coats on, it looks good! This is going to be a loooong process because I plan on using only top of the line Made in America stuff and it's going to be expensive!!
Aug 28, 2. Welcome to FTF. Cool build. Keep it coming. Aug 28, 3. The 50 Beowulf is a great big bore caliber. If you plan on doing any amount of shooting with these big bore calibers,you better know or learn how to load your own ammo. The cost of factory ammo is very expensive,and even reloading these calibers isn't cheap. All of these caliber's shoot good,and have a good yard range,after that they drop really fast.
