MD 50 sniper rifle (formerly known as Leader 50) is designed by Charles St George, prominent small arms designer who previously developed semi-automatic rifles such as Leader T2 and Bushmaster M17S. MD 50 (Leader 50) is manufactured by US-based company Micor Defense. Leader 50 sniper rifle is one of the lightest and most compact fifty caliber rifles on the market, and, if required, can be more or less comfortably fired from the shoulder.
MD 50 sniper rifle is gas operated, semi-automatic weapon of bullpup layout. Its receiver is made of extruded aluminum alloy. Gas system of the MD rifle features three-position gas regulator and annular short stroke gas piston, located around the barrel. The bolt group is of original and innovative design. Rotary bolt has triangular head with three frontal locking lugs – an idea, pioneered by St George in his Leader T2 rifle three decades ago.
The bolt carrier is unusually short and light, which leads to a relatively short receiver and decreased felt recoil. To further decrease the recoil, barrel is equipped with effective muzzle brake. Rifle is fed from detachable box magazines with 10-round capacity, ejection is to the right. Sighting means are provided via long integral Picatinny rail above the receiver, which could host variety of sights – daytime telescopic, night vision / IR and / or back-up iron sights. Accessories such as bipod or grip-pod can be installed on the additional rail located below the forend.
Micor Defense also displayed a very interesting aluminum-tipped precision .50BMG round made by the illustrious masters of lethal mayhem at PNW Arms Weapons Science that’s designed to allow you to dial the Leader 50 right into station WKILL on the terminally ballistic radio dial out to 1500-2000 yards, and perhaps even beyond. There’s nothing quite like making bad guys explode at 1500+ yards in terms of psychological impact on the enemy, especially since said enemy will actually see their fellow combatants’ bodies deflagrate before hearing the respective gunshots. A good .50 BMG sniper rifle/scope/ammo combo combines maximum physical effect on target with a corresponding maximum psychological effect on the enemy as a whole. It’s a tough weapon system to beat in that regard. It’s also a morale booster for the sniper, and force multiplier for the good guys.

Hmmm a ver cuanto se tardan los malandros en andar comprando estas cosas y usarlas para todo excepto para lo que fueron diseñados.
