I’ve always been a fan of Steyr HS .50, it was possibly one of the most accurate .50BMGs on the market. The rifle has a cold hammer forged barrel that turned the HS .50 into a tack driver. The factory 2 stage trigger broke like a glass rod at 4 pounds. But, it also had a major drawback especially for tactical application – it was a single shot rifle. That issue was resolved with the introduction of the HS .50-M1. Steyr’s new interpretation of the HS .50  comes with a 5 round magazine, long 20 MOA Picatinny rail system with Picatinny rails at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions , Adjustable cheekpiece , a newly designed and fixable bipod and a spine that extends to the buttstock. All of these enhancements make the HS .50-M1 an ideal choice for extended range precision shooting, antipersonnel or anti-materiel. An impressive addition to your weapons locker for right around $7,000.
