No tips, other than my opinion that you should send it to me for a 5-10 year evaluation.   :D

If you don't mind, please upload some pics and/or a review.

Thanks!

And be sure to let your friends shoot it a lot the next time we go to the range!

So far I've only test fired it yesterday in the cold North Dakota weather. I did run 10 rounds through it useing a 30rd unmodified thermold magazine. It function perfect. Recoil was far less then I was expecting....I was actually hoping it kicked a little more. It was like a .20 guage shotgun.

Hopefully my friend RoverDave will help me get some pictures posted later.....since I will be letting him shoot the "Mini-50"

I bought the whole rifle. It is a RRA rifle that Alex. Arms reworks and stamps Their name and the new caliber on the right side of the receiver.

A full-auto would be a Jack Hammer!

I've had the opportunity to fire it also and I must say, I was surprised by the lack of recoil.  Reminded me of a .308 Win or so.  The muzzle blast was LOUD (I shot it at an indoor range).  Yow  :)

Have a friend who is going to put the upper on his M16 lower.  Outdoor fire only, for our ears' sake.

I haven't purchased or fired any of the 400 grainers, but I think they may give us the recoil we so desire.

RoverDave and I went out shooting this weekend. It was real cold so we didn't shoot much. We each put 5 rounds of 325 grainers through the Beowulf. Recoil seemed a little heavier this time...we liked that.
Here's a link to a picture...if it works.

Yup...fixed post ban stock. I just like the looks of them, I guess. The only real difference looks wise is the lack of ejection port door and the big frickin' hole in the end of the barrel. :eek:

Don't get me wrong -  I like the deceptive look.  I'd love to see you let someone shoot it who thinks it's a .223!!!   :D

I agree...It's a 150 yard sledge hammer in mouse gun clothing..good one. Anyway, I can't wait until this spring when I can get to a real range and see the look on some of their faces when I soot it and stuff goes flying...hopefully not pieces of my gun of'course.
