ODESSA, FLORIDA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Zel Custom Manufacturing, which recently purchased the Ultralite50 product line, has released the Tactilite™, an improved line of the classic .50 BMG conversion kit for AR-style rifles.

The Tactilite™ improves on the Ultralite50 design by adding a free-floated barrel with an interchangeable handguard, offering Lothar-Walther standard and match barrels and providing CeraKote™ as a standard finish. The Tactilite™ continues the Ultralite50 tradition of affordability, durability and safety.

The Tactilite™ is a complete upper assembly that allows a user to quickly, and without special tools, convert a standard AR-15 rifle into a precision single-shot, bolt-action, .50 BMG rifle. With prices starting at $1550, less than half the price of most .50 BMGs, the Tactilite™ is designed to be a highly affordable way for people to own a .50 BMG.

“We are extremely excited about offering a better range of models to fit every shooter’s need and budget. We continue to offer the Defender model, an 18.5″ version, which is highly affordable and designed for shoulder-mounted firing. At the other end of the spectrum, we now offer the Super Match model, which is designed to fit the needs of marksmen new to 1000-yd competitions.”

This article is 5 years old, but… I actually have a Zen Tactilite T2 50BMG upper. I can say that the amount of damage to the lower receiver is “none”, as the forces go directly backwards into the (fixed) stock (no buffer). I use a Magpul PRS stock with a Pachmayr recoil pad. Very manageable, and after quite a few rounds, zero signs of wear on the lower.


How much damage does the recoil produce to the Lower Receiver…
