    I have decided to go for the .50, but I am taking the cheaper route of getting an AR in .50cal

    So after reviewing pics online I have determined that the single shot AR lowers look way better because there is no mag well, mag release, and bolt catch that would be useless on the .50 upper.

    I have found only (2) companies that make the single shot lower, DMPS which seem to be more rare and then this company.

    Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on these or knows of any other brands available.

    Thanks!

    I dunno....I think I'd live with a useless mag well to save a hundred bucks.

    Personally I think the single shot lower makes it look more like a "real" .50 rifle and not some Frankenstein conversion.

    I did just find out the DMPS single shot lower is not designed for specifically for the .50cal, its just a single shot AR lower which does not allow for a magazine, it still has the bolt catch on it.

    Guess the Safe Harbor Lower is the one and only?

    There are several manufacturers of these ar - 50 cal kits . I just purchased a tactilite kit . BOHICA has one safety harbor looks good . Google the 50 cal kits and you will find 4 or 5 websites to check out . There are some order to arrival issues in the past , get a delivery time before you send your $
