“The AR-50A1 National Match is similar to our standard AR-50A1 with some VERY important differences,” ArmaLite assures people who were worried that their AR-50A1 wasn’t outmoded. “The AR-50A1 NM is produced from selected components: The National Match’s 33 inch barrel is three inches longer than the standard AR-50A1’s barrel. The barrel has eight flutes. The flutes help with cooling and reduce unnecessary weight while maintaining accuracy-enhancing stiffness. The barrel has a 50 BMG Match chamber instead of a standard military chamber.” Looking for more reasons the AR-50A1 NM achieves sub-MOA accuracy? Or just another reason to wonder where you’re going to find a 1000-yard rifle range?

The heart of the rifle is its metallic stock-to-action interface. The patented V-Lock™ Bedding Wedge and V-Block Stock assure absolute strength and repeatability for superb accuracy. The aluminum stock reinforces the receiver like a bench-rest sleeve.

It’s not just the bedding that improves accuracy. Independent testing has proven the AR-50A1 muzzle brake to be the best in the industry for both recoil control and accuracy. It scrapes away turbulent muzzle gasses and lets the bullet break into clean air for amazing accuracy.

  1. If I had access to a long enough range I’d love to own one. Match accurate rifle shooting is what originally turned me on to guns, and I’d like to revisit that platform in a super long range version some day. There’s nothing quite like being able to reach out and touch your target from 1000 yrds.

    I’m interested in what sort of optics sit on a rifle like that. Likely to set you back as much as the gun itself.

  2. I understand why these rifles are popular. They shoot like gangbusters. They will keep up with or out do the Macmillan Tac 50 or others that are three times the price. They are more than capable or bringing home lots of trophies. How can you beat that?
