Default Upsize 50BMG falling block rifle

Years ago I remember an article in a machine shop magazine about building a single shot falling block rifle in 50BMG. It used a lightweight M2 barrel and was basically a scaled up rifle similar to a Ruger #1. Does anyone remember or know where I could find the article or plans?

It's a neat idea too bad it's illegal to manufacture one.

I forget if it was a falling block or a rolling block but, I recall that only one or two were commercially produced by Klaus when he owned State Arms. I do know that one example recently surfaced in Fresno!
