The Alexander Arms.50 Beowulf® is the original big-bore cartridge for AR-15 style firearms.
Alexander Arms designed the .50 Beowulf® to generate devastating stopping power at short to moderate ranges. Combining the rugged reliability of the AR-15/M16 style weapons with a unique .500 inch projectile and cartridge, this semi-automatic weapon is ideal as a brush hunting weapon and is capable of knocking down virtually anything you may run across. For wild pig hunting, the rifle is without equal and is being used not only by hunters, but by game control agencies as well. Deer in close cover are easily taken with solid hits guaranteeing one shot kills and little or no tracking. The same reliable combination of heavy, large-diameter bullets and moderate velocities enable the .50 Beowulf® to tackle the largest game animals found in North America and it has been used against elk, buffalo, and bear with superb results.
Providing a semi-automatic, light-carbine with the performance of the venerable 45-70 rifle, the .50 Beowulf® has found wide acceptance with military and law enforcement agencies. The external ballistics of the .50 Beowulf® cartridge are well-suited to urban environments where the shorter range template allows for more flexible application and the large projectile energy delivered by the ammunition can disable both motor vehicles and assailants with body armor. Windscreen glass does not affect the trajectory of the bullet, nor do automotive body panels. With frangible projectiles, the .50 Beowulf® can be used on most training facilities with minimal or no damage and, with the addition of a muzzle brake to provide a stand-off, can be used for building entry.
The combination of devastating stopping power and dependable reliability packaged in a lightweight form factor familiar to sportsmen and men-at-arms around the world, makes the .50 Beowulf® rifle from Alexander Arms® the obvious choice.
For law enforcement purposes it is definitely suited to roles for which the 12 gauge slug is suitable, and it is significantly more powerful and accurate than a rifled slug to boot.

NOTES ABOUT GAS PISTON TECHNOLOGY: Gas piston technology was first used in modern firearms by Mikhail Kalashnikov on the AK-47. While similar to direct impingement systems, there are a few key differences in operation. The firing process again begins with propellant gases being bled into the barrel. Instead of being forced into a tube as it is in a direct impingement system, the gas is contained in a separate cylinder. The cylinder contains a piston (similar in operation to what you may find in an AK-47). The gas moves the piston, and the piston pushes the bolt carrier rearward to effect extraction and ejection. Then the bolt carrier is pushed forward to the closed position by a spring, just as with direct impingement.
The action of a gas piston rifle remains cool and clean, even after shooting multiple rounds in rapid succession. The bolt carrier can be removed immediately and held in your hand without burning yourself.
The VLTOR Carbine Enhanced Modular Stock includes a reinforced adjustment/ locking pin, an aluminum strike plate, and an additional AA battery storage compartment. New for this model is the heavily textured rubber butt pad which helps in reducing recoil as well as slippage from the shoulder. The stock comes with two integral battery tubes which serve the additional purpose of providing a solid cheek-weld. These tubes will hold three AA batteries or 4 of the CR123 batteries that most weapon lights are using. The stock has 5 positions from full extension to completely collapsed. See OAL & LOP measurements below.
Due to the increased size of the ejection port required to eject the fat Beowulf case, no dust cover is included, but the receiver does have forward assist.
