Okay, I sabatoged my post on this last time so I'm trying again. Can anyone tell me who makes good .50 BMG barrels? I think I looked at Kentucky rifleman and liked the pricing, but are they good? Who else makes good barrels for relatively cheap? Any idea where to get a suplus M2 barrel? Dad wants to do that. And what about optics? What are some good scopes that are .50 safe? I like a high magnification, but tell me about any that really seem to work well. The new question: Is Gun Kote fairly easy to do? If not, what else should we consider? Thanks.
