Yep, you read that right. As if Tactical Bacon wasn’t zany enough CMMG is making a 50 caliber muzzleloading AR-15. The main charge and projectile are loaded down the front of this 20 inch barrel, but the user needs to place a primed 5.56 case (no powder, just the primer) in the chamber to light the thing off. The gun uses a standard AR-15 bolt and bolt carrier but the gas system is inoperable, meaning you need to manually cycle the action. Ammunition is stored inside the single shot sled-like magazine block. When asked why they made such a thing, the rep replied “we got drunk one night and someone made a bet.”

  1. Yes ladies and gentlemen,
    We have the one and only, the first muzzle loading semi-automatic assault rifle. It’s just what our founding fathers had in mind. /snicker

    All the same, is it legal for black powder season?

  2. ‘When asked why they made such a thing, the rep replied “we got drunk one night and someone made a bet.'”

    Just the sort of people I want designing my next weapon.

    • That is EXACTLY who I want designing my next rifle. I’ve seen some crazy things, but this one definitely takes the cake. hah.

  3. That “getting drunk” story is just a cover to conceal something far more sinister. This was an evil ploy by a marketing department that knows there is a small but exploitable segment of gun buyers who will be compelled by their mental illness to purchase this, for no other reason than it’s an AR they don’t already own. Maybe it started with all of the “collect the entire set” marketing of freebies in breakfast cereal when they were kids.
