Shoulder-fired .50BMG?

SERO GM6 Lynx

The folks at Hungarian gun magazine Gun Magazin had the opportunity to test the SERO GM6 Lynx, SERO's lightweight and low-recoil shoulder fired .50 BMG semi-automatic rifle. I am looking forward to the full report, which they tell me will be published online in both English as well as Hungarian.

The thing I found most interesting is here in this video.  I don't have sound right now, so forgive me if it's not work-safe.  Tread carefully.

Check out about 0:48 on.  There's a shot shortly after that of the soldier firing it.



Reciprocal barrel.  And that was a loooong cycle.  Whoa.  Interesting. 

I'd hate to feel the recoil on that thing without that action.   :'(

That last shot was BAD-ASS!
Also, it's safe for work.

Nice.  I also liked the opening shot of the shock wave from the muzzle blast laying the grass down around the soldier firing that thing.   :yes

I understand that with a good muzzle brake and enough weight, the recoil on most .50 BMG rifles isn't too bad.

I recall an article I read in the early 90's about the Maadi Griffin (bolt action bullpup .50) that described it as comparable to shooting slugs from a 12 gauge.

Simply viewing the video is a misdemeanor in California. 

I like it.   8)

that video was so horribly shot 2 seconds of actually shooting and all the loud music and helicopters flying around
a bunch of us in my unit took turns shooting the m107 from our shoulders standing its pretty easy unless yer a little guy with short arms
