Accuracy International (AI) appears to have a hit on there hands with the AW50 .50 BMG bolt-action anti-materiel (anti-material)/sniper rifle.

The AI AW50 anti-materiel rifle, in layman’s terms, is basically 33-35 lbs (depending on reports) of "you don’t want any." This is one very serious rifle designed for hard military use. The AI AW50 is therefore…

modular and highly robust. From reports DefRev has heard, barrels can be swapped out fairly quickly and easily.

For those who need a slightly lighter package, there is another version of the AW50 called the AW50FT. The AW50FT weighs under 28 lbs, and accomplishes its weight reduction by replacing certain steel parts with titanium ones. Both versions feature a folding stock for added compactness during transport. The AW50 feeds from a 5 round detachable box mag.

By the way, if you live in te PSRK (People’s Socialist Republik of Kalifornia), you are now SOL, since your state has just banned their sale.
