It's a nice conversation piece, but I see the .50 GI as a pretty pointless cartridge. ]

I just don't understand it. If you want more bang than a .45 go with a 10mm. If you really want to throw out some power in a semi-auto, get a .50 AE.

Read the first sentence. Looking at the picture, I bet it's a sloooow round. Still be fun to shoot.

I put a few mags though one. Feels about like a 230 +p really.

Weird thing is the case - .50 dia with a 45 rim, so the breechface and extractor aren't changed. Looks really odd.

Ok, so Glocks are having issues firing open breach, so what's gonna happen when the .50 explodes in your hands? And don't say it doesn't happen, a friend on security at JSC had one go up the other day.

The .50 ae has a rebated rim also, but not that severe.

No you want Clarke Custom Guns to make R&D their 460 Rowland for the Glock 21, that would make me go out and buy a G21 today.

Small Arms Review did a write up on the Glock Conversion and didn't like it and had problems with the slide I think wearing out a chunk in less than 200 rounds. They just did a review on the .50 version of the 1911 style and gave it a good review.
