Is a full-sized .50 BMG rifle too long?
Many people long to own a rifle chambered in .50 BMG. The giant rounds travel a blistering 3,000 feet per second or more and can deliver up to 13,000 foot pounds of energy to a target. All that power comes with a downside and that's the size of the rifle. Your average Barrett weighs about 33 pounds and measures up to 57 inches in length. That's a huge rifle! For some people, it may be more rifle than they want. If that's the case, and you're looking for something more compact, an incredible semi-automatic bullpup design from Tactical Imports Corp. in Canada might catch your attention.

Behold the GM6 Lynx, a .50 BMG semi-auto that is also more compact than the other offerings currently on the market today.
The GM6 Lynx is a semi-automatic .50 BMG bullpup rifle with a five-round magazine capacity and a barrel length of 28.7 inches. That's a lengthy barrel for any rifle, but this allows the gun to deliver those big .50 caliber rounds at a distance with accuracy. This rifle is a relatively short weapon that packs a serious punch.
