TAMPA, FL-(Ammoland.com)- McCutchen Firearms has released two precision .50 BMG upper receiver assemblies for AR-15s, featuring the proprietary Mechanically-Assisted Pin Safety (M.A.P.S.) system. The MF-50 has been released in both single-shot (MF-50S) and magazine-fed (MF-50M) versions.

“We think we’ve created the perfect product for shooters who’ve been wanting to own a .50 BMG that is more affordable, more accurate and safer than ever before,” according to McCutchen Firearms President, Andrew McCutchen.

McCutchen, a mechanical engineer with 15 years of product development experience, and his team of engineers and machinists, developed the.50 BMG upper assemblies and the M.A.P.S. safety system, in response to consumer demand.

“Our market research indicated that many shooters want an affordable .50 BMG rifle, but hesitated in buying .50 BMG upper assemblies for their AR-platforms out of concerns about the quality, accuracy, reliability and safety of products that are currently on market. The MF-50 is the result of our team analyzing some of the best ideas that we’ve seen and adding over a year of our engineering and manufacturing expertise, to meet and exceed the customer’s expectations.”

The patent-pending M.A.P.S. system features a mechanical interface that both blocks the firing pin until the bolt is in battery and also provides a mechanical assist in driving back the firing pin, after firing, thereby addressing two known safety issues that exist with other .50 BMG upper assemblies on the market.

“Nothing beats a great day at the range shooting a .50 BMG, accurately, safely and affordably,” McCutchen concluded.

    1. The technical specs are listed on the website under the uppers if you go into one of the specific uppers, they have a description, features, specifications and what’s included. They are custom designed and manufactured at the McCutchen Firearms production facility. Barrels are 4140 and have a custom black nitride Teflon finish on them. They are chambered in-house using a precision alignment technique that aligns the chamber perfectly to the bore. It’s a high volume 6-port brake. Less than 1 MOA accuracy. It looks like these were redesigned based on the Zel Custom uppers that they acquired.

    2. No actual technical info. No mentions of stainless or 4150cmv
      Or if its nitrided, type of muzzle brake. Not even on the manufacturer site do they go into detail. My guess would be they just produced a knockoff of what’s already out. And why the AR15 lower and leave out the AR10. With a $2600 price tag there’s a lot left to be desired. With a barrel life of a few hundred rounds the only thing that would make it long lasting is the cost of rounds even if reloading. Pass

      1. Is barrel life of only a few hundred rounds true because it’s a 50 cal or because of what this barrel is made out of? I’m trying to figure out where you got your info from because I would never spend that much for some ting that will wear out so qui c k.
