.50 BMG AR-15 Upper

Bookmark and Share


The AR-15 rifle is the lego set of the firearms world, there’s a never ending combination of accessories available, barrel lenghts and calibers that can be used via various upper recievers. Here’s something that’s pretty unique in the AR world, a .50 BMG AR upper. The .50 Browning Machine Gun cartridge entered service in 1921, and is still going on strong to this day.

Watsons Firearms, Inc.’s .50 BMG upper receiver is a complete upper ready to pin onto your standard AR-15 lower. It also comes with an extanded takedown pin to make it easier to open and close your ARs lower. The .50 BMG upper features a 1 in 15 twist Lothar Walther 36″ target barrel, a DPMS Hi-Rider flat top receiver, a bipod and four point break. Watsons Firearms also headspaces the upper to be sure it accepts various manufacturers .50 BMG ammo. While this probably isn’t the best choice for a plinking AR for range use, if you’re hunting a T-rex it will do great. They go for $1349 over at watsonsfirearms.com.

Spearmint Rhino Sues Chiappa Firearms Over Rhino Logo

Bookmark and Share


Plenty of firearms companies have been sued over the years, but this one is a first. The international strip club chain Spearmint Rhino is suing Chiappa Firearms, what reason does a strip club have for suing a firearms maker you ask?

The whole spat is over the rhino logo used on Chiappa Firearms Rhino series of revolvers. Spearmint Rhino claims that consumers may confuse the logo on the Rhino revolvers with the strip clubs line of branded g-strings and lingerie. While I do see the similarities with the two logos, they do have quite if a bit of differences.
