HM Defense have released a new .50BMG bolt action rifle called HM50B. This rifle is marketed as being a higher precision weapon than a typical anti-materiel rifle thanks to features like the free-floated match-grade button-rifled and honed barrel, target trigger and unique lock-up system. The HM50B is also designed to allow working its action while staying on the rifle which is achieved thanks to its ejection port and bolt handle layout – it has a right-side ejection port but a left-side bolt handle attached to the front portion of the bolt.
