Gunnery Network - A Web Site Dedicated to Gunnery
Project .50/.50 is the brain child of Ted Van Duyn [left] and Phil Flack of P.F. Custom Guns. The Project Combines Two (2) of the most powerful, and therefor most fun to shoot, firearms in the world, with a a fun to drive transport / gun barer vehicle with plenty of power, excellent mobility and all terrain capabilities. The pictured [front] .50 is a Barrett M82A1 with mounting accesories from Barret and from P.F. Guns. Project .50/.50 so where's the other .50? A trailer and custom mount is being designed and built that will transport a .50 Cal M2 HB Flex Automatic Heavy Machine Gun. The Ma Duce! Look back here for more info as available.
The most commonly asked question we get on Project .50/.50 is; "What's it for?" The simple answer is "It is a Gun Barer and Transport Assemblage for 2 fine guns that are wonderfully fun to shoot yet almost impossible to carry". That satisfies most concerns, but we can always fall back on our 2nd most common responce: Have you ever carried a Barrett or a Ma Duce!? ... The Ammo...? Nuff said.

Undoubtedly the best-known .50 Caliber Heavy Machine Gun in the World. The .50 cal. (12.7mm) M2 Heavy Machine Gun or BMG Browning Machine Gun, was developed by John M. Browning at the end of World War I. After a series of early water-cooled, aircraft, and tank models were tested in the 1920s, an improved version was adopted in 1933 as the Browning M2 water-cooled machine gun.
Subsequent models (.50 cal. M2 aircraft gun and M2 heavy barrel gun) using the same receiver, were adopted by the Army. During World War II, nearly two million M2 machine guns of all variations were produced. The M2 was manufactured until 1946, but toward the end of 1976, the U.S. Army took steps to begin new production and rebuild of the M2 to replace seriously depleted stocks. Many M2s had been demilitarized following World War II.
Emergency supply of M2s to the Israeli Defense Forces during the 1973 Yom

By repositioning some of the component parts, ammunition may be fed from
either the left or right side. A disintegrating metallic link-belt is used to feed
the ammunition into the weapon. This gun may be mounted on ground mounts and
most vehicles as an anti-personnel and anti-aircraft weapon. The
