This rifle is just like the AR-50A1, but chambered and re-barreled to accept the .416 Barrett cartridge. Because of that, the AR-50A1-.416 Barrett boasts the same ArmaLite patented V-Lock™ Bedding Wedge and V-Block Stock that assure absolute strength and repeatability for superb accuracy. The aluminum stock reinforces the receiver like a bench-rest sleeve.
Added to all of that is the famous .416 Barrett cartridge, which contains a .416 caliber projectile capable of sustaining supersonic speeds out to the 2,000 yards, which is the key to achieving long range accuracy. The .416 Barrett cartridge uses a lighter, narrower bullet that was designed using low supersonic drag equations and results in a significantly high muzzle velocity and exceptional ballistic performance.
Independent testing has proven the ArmaLite AR-50A1 muzzle brake to be the best in the industry for both recoil control and accuracy. The AR-50A1-416 has the exact same muzzle brake. The brake scrapes away turbulent muzzle gasses and lets the bullet break into clean air for amazing accuracy. The soft recoil means even the smallest of shooters, or the most recoil-sensitive, will enjoy shooting the rifle.
THE AR-50A1-416 IS LEGAL TO SELL AND OWN IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.
