I just got a Hesse .50 BMG. I shot it the other day and it was a blast. Very accurate. Is there any other Hesse .50 BMG shooters here? Please give me any feedback if you have shot one or own one. (NOT LOOKING FOR HESSE BASHERS.)
Oh man, talk to the people at Biggerhammer.net. There's a reason people bash Hesse!! I have an FAL with one of their receivers, and all I can say is if the QC on their 50s is anything like their following a print on my FAL, I'll pass.
mcassill, I did go to biggerhammer.net. I read all the Hesse comments. But no one there has one or has shot one.(The .50 BMG). I have one and shot it. I contacted Hesse and Joeken that sells Hesse. He said he had some problems with the AK47 receivers but that he did not make them, they were imported from Russia. And the Ar15 Receivers I don't know about. If I listened to the guys on biggerhammer.net I would not drive a dodge either. But I do. The .50 BMG works under the same pressures as the big magnum rounds. I trust this gun. I can't wait to go put 150 rounds trough it. After I get to 1000 rounds and the gun is still working well as I expect it will, I will post on biggerhammer.net. I am sure if there were people getting injured from Hesse guns, he would be out of business. I took the Hesse to my local gunsmith and had him check it out and he said the receiver , bolt and barrel were very well made and he could find no reason not to shoot the Hess. Good enough for me.
power to you man, I've never seen a Hesse brand, is it an auto, bolt action, etc.? I shot one of the 50 BMG bolt action rifles, wasn't to bad except for all the dirt thrown up by the muzzle brake.
personally I stick to my 500 Linebaugh, its much easier to carry.
jdt634, It is a bolt action. I heard alot of bad stuff about Hesse. But not one of them shoot a .50BMG from Hesse. I guess there are Hesse .50BMG people out there and they don't get on forums. But I know 2 people that have one and they like there's also. I guess I will be the one on biggerhammer to give the feedback. The biggerhammer board has alot of serbu and barrett .50BMG people and they are not very open to Hesse due to the bad AR15 and AK47 they put out. I guess it is like talking about Dodge at a Ford dealership. LOL...
