Thumbs up Meeper the John Browning of cool new designs..my Meeper conversion...

is a work of art! This is the coolest FAL I've ever had the pleasure to shoot...in .50 Beowulf, in 7.62x25, in .308 and in .223.

My favorite? (if I can pick just one) That's the .50 Beowulf which in this weapon system is a pussycat to shoot. I blasted through a box of ammo (20 rounds) in about 10 minutes and with my Eotech/ARMS mt combo it was simple to chew out the center bull of a .22 50 yard target at 25 yards. (my local 25 yd indoor range) This one uses USGI 30 rd mags and these hold 10 Beowulf cartridges which is a bunch of knockdown power in one mag.

I'll take this baby to Tusco at one of the plate shoots and this one should do the trick in short order. This would be one fine weapon for use in the sands of Iraq. The ultimate "M4" type weapon with real knockdown power.....YEAH BABY!
The ammo isn't light to carry.... but oh well. One solid shot to the head....and no head left. Ain't that an ugly thought.


Thanks Meeper! Beautiful finish work, superb machine work and a flawless FAL multi caliber system.

Hey Russ! Great to hear from you again.

Pricing depends alot on what you want....and on whether you want a conversion FAL or a dedicated .50 Beowulf Fal. I love this dang .50 so much I probablty should have had a dedicated .50 Beowulf built.

Call Vern and he'll give you options and pricing based on your needs.

I know this sounds like I'm waffling on price....(I am) but Vern will fill you in.
I really don't want anyone to know how much I spent on this system. I will tell you it was worth every dollar I spent for it though.

Hope your business is flourishing!

Mark
