The AS50 was developed by British firearms company Accuracy International and was first displayed in January of 2006. This rifle was developed especially for US SOCOM users, and is now being tested by the US NAVY Special Operations center.


The AS50 employs a gas operated semi-automatic action and muzzle break, allowing for lower recoil than the AW50 bolt action rifle and faster target acquisition. The rifle is highly transportable and lightweight. It can be disassembled in less than three minutes and serviced without tools. The barrel is free floated. The two-part machined steel receiver features an accessory rail for the mounting of optical sights. An adjustable bipod and rear support leg/hand grip allowing for stable shooting. This weapon can accurately engage targets at over a mile's distance.
