List of 50 Caliber Pistols

Posted on 03 October 2011 by David Allred

There’s not very many .50 caliber pistols being manufactured out there, and it’s a shame. So I did a bit of research and have listed the ones I could find below.

Government Industries 50 Caliber 1911Government Industries .50 Caliber 1911

The 50GI is a low pressure round that doesn’t give you a big concussion blast like high pressure rounds such as the 10mm does. This makes it more tactically sound in a firefight. The 50GI case was designed with a .45ACP case head size which allows for a barrel and magazine swap so either round can be used in the same pistol with only a barrel and mag swap. This further increases its versatility and value.

Smith & Wesson 50 Caliber RevolverSmith & Wesson .50 Caliber Revolver

This pistol comes with different barrel lengths. Personally, sometimes size does matter! But then again, if you have to conceal a pistol, you can enjoy the same quality 50 caliber pistol from Smith & Wesson but with a shorter barrel and different purpose.

Desert Eagle .50 Caliber PistolDesert Eagle .50 Caliber Pistol

The Desert Eagle was the first 50 caliber pistol I was able to fire. When I think of a .50 caliber pistol, the Desert Eagle is always the first one that comes to mind. On top of that, my choice is always semi-auto over revolver.

AMT Automag  .50 Caliber PistolAMT Automag IV .50 Caliber Pistol

I’m not so sure that AMT still manufactures this pistol, but there are some still out there on the market. It holds six rounds and would sell on the open market for around $800 US.

Grizzly Win Mag .50 CaliberGrizzly WinMag .50 Caliber Pistol

I know for a fact that the Grizzly WinMag is no longer in production and all models are sold out. However, it seems as though Grizzly still offers parts for it. Grizzly seems to be moving more towards their .50 caliber rifles in production.

    I have a .50 LMR Grizzly Mark V Crome/Nickel model. It was made for me here in West Jordan. Shot maybe 250 rounds and its in new condition. Any idea on a value. Is the government trying to ban the .50 Cal. ?
    Thanks, Brad

    It’s a L.A.R. Not LMR Lol

  6. David Allred Says:

    I haven’t heard anything which could effect the .50 cal pistols. Most of their attention is geared towards automatic and semi-automatic assault weapons.

  7. Tom Says:

    Not to be nit picky, but why is it so essential to have a .50 cal. pistol? The .357 seems to, from what I have read, be most adequate, actually more adequate than a .45 when using hollow point bullets in a scenario of self-preservation
    Is the .50 cal. mostly just for the fun of it, as it does not seem to have any more value than a 9mm, .40 cal. or .45 for defensive purposes, even a .380.
    Just because one may have the ability to create something as the .50 cal. pistol does not imply that it needs to be done.

  8. David Allred Says:

    Tom, my advice to you is to get your hands on one and shoot it. It’s just one of those guns you need to experience in order to appreciate. In my opinion, anything above a 9mm will deliver enough of a blow when protecting yourself. A .50 cal pistol definitely isn’t for everyone.

    Where can I obtain a GRIZZLY .50 CAL? And how much could I expect to pay for one? What is the difference between the Desert Eagle vs. The GRIZZLY? Which gun is more powerful? A .50 cal is a .50 cal right?

  10. David Allred Says:

    A .50 cal pistol is a .50 cal pistol, however, each pistol has it’s own feel, not only in your hand, but when fired. I’ve fired both a .50 cal revolver and the Desert Eagle semiauto, and the revolver had much less kick due to the longer barrel. I prefer the semiauto over the revolver, in any caliber for various reasons, but it’s all about preference.

    As for the Grizzly, last I checked, they were out of production and no longer being made. You’d have to search it out and find one on your own through gun auction sites or the traditional way, one gun shop at a time!
