Default Ar15 .50 DTC Upper?

With all of these lowers around it would be nice if someone made an .50 DTC AR type Upper to use with our OLL.

Talk to this guy:

I bet he'd make you one if you don't mind waiting 3 months or so.

You can also try the makers of the Ultralite 50 and Ultramag 50.

The makers of the UL50 make an upper in .50 Spotter which is smaller then the .50 BMG. The UM50 is mag fed.

A 50DTC upper would need the mag removed to fit. While you could cut the lips off a mag to use with a OLL (can't have an open mag well), why not just get a DPMS single shot receiver?

Walter should just be about ready to finish and test his DTC rifles about now..
He also now markets his own single-shot lowers to go with his UltraMag50 uppers.

I think somemguys are trying to figure out what to do with their pile of unbuilt lowers.

If I were going to buy/build another .50, saving $90 by using a preowned lower on a rifle that will cost me at least $3000 does seem to be a odd priority.

Intriguing. I thought I was going to have to do a SS with the lower I registered.

How do these compare to say an ALS for accuracy and recoil?

I can see a reciever doing double duty to save money. But with the OLL in CA, I think that is more trouble than it is worth. If you are going to have a deadicated lower, and OLL is fine but don't forget to keep the mag well full. If you haven't bought one yet, then go with the single shot receiver.

An offlist lower receiver like my Stag would not be a semiauto rifle if I put a .510DTC bolt action upper on it. So, couldn't I do it like this? 1) assemble a bolt action or single shot .510DTC upper to my Stag lower. 2) put on the pistol grip to keep the safety detent spring in place. 3) leave the mag well open since I made the rifle into a bolt action rifle now. Disassembly would be in reverse order.

Among others. .338 Lapua Magnum and other .338s (Rum etc.), .408 Chey-Tac, .416 Barret, new one that seems to be promising is 375-408.

You could but I think the DOJ would say that is a no-no. It is the same as having a 22LR upper. It shouldn't matter but here in the occupied PRK I wouldn't take the chance!

Thumbs up use a DPMS single shot lower or FAB-10

You're better off getting the DPMS CA legal single shot upper, FAB-10, or Bushmaster Carbon Fiber rifle, both with the internal fixed mag removed. Or you can grind down the mag lips with a dremel.







AB50 only bans the .50bmg cartridge, so you have a variation cartridge of one where you can change any of the dimensions such as trimming the brass, setting the shoulder at a shorter/less steep angle, then you're legal. So long as a .50bmg cartridge can not be chambered and shot in your upper.
