ABOVE: Big Horn Armory’s AR500
BIG HORN ARMORY
The AR500 in 500 Auto Max is designed for hunters and law enforcement. Based on a DPMS style AR308, the AR500 features a lightweight aluminum receiver with grooves cut into the front of the mag well and the trigger. The precision-machined stainless steel barrels are surface-hardened to Rc82 with BHA’s nitride process for consistent downrange performance and in-the-field dependability. The 18-inch barrel is threaded at a ¾-inch x 28 TPI, standard for most 50-caliber muzzle devices and ships with a standard flash suppressor.
Big Horn Armory’s 500 Auto Max is a rimless version of the 500 S&W with the same ballistics. It is capable of feeding and firing any .500 diameter bullet between 200 and 700 grains. The AR500 has an adjustable gas block to allow the user to run subsonic loads using a suppressor.
The Big Horn Armory AR500 rifle is capable of taking any big game animal. For law enforcement or military use, the AR500 is the ultimate checkpoint duty rifle replacing the .50 Beowulf or CQC rifle in a short-barrel configuration or as a powerful breaching weapon capable of clearing any obstruction, including bullet proof glass. bighornarmory.com
