Buy AP.50 BMG Online
The AP 50 BMG (Browning machine gun), designated as the 50 Browning by the C.I.P. is a .50 in (12.7 mm) caliber firearm cartridge developed for the M2 Browning machine gun in the late 1910s.
The bullet has been designed in several variants: tracer, armor-piercing, incendiary, multiple generations of regular ball, and saboted sub-caliber rounds. The rounds intended for machine guns are linked using metallic links. It is a standard cartridge for NATO forces as well as several non-NATO countries too.
The manufacturer John Browning first had the idea to create this round during World War I, responding to a need for an anti-aircraft weapon, based on a scaled-up M1919/M1917 design that Browning had earlier developed around 1900 (but which was not adopted by the U.S. military until 1917 and thus the reason for the M1917 designation).
During World War II, the .50 BMG also came into play. It was mainly used in the M2 Browning machine gun, in both its “light barrel” aircraft mount version and the “heavy barrel” (HB) version on ground vehicles, for anti-aircraft purposes. It was then upgraded decades later and chambered in high-powered rifles.
Description of Buy AP.50 BMG Online
The .50 BMG links are manufactured with closed loops. So the links perfectly fit on the cartridge shoulders when assembled with the cartridge in belts. The tapered front loops of the links are firmly placed on the cartridge shoulder to keep the cartridge in proper alignment for feeding into the weapon. It is designed in such a way that the cartridge is extracted from the rear and dropped into position for moving into the chamber for firing. Weapons designed for the links require additional space in the rear of the receiver for retraction.
