I’m always down for some AK-50 news:

That thing is going to be so epic when it’s complete.  I admire that he hasn’t given up on it after all these years.  That’s how you win.. you keep after it and keep working through the problems.

4:46 – That is one of the most lived in hats I’ve seen in a while.  The sweat and sun fades are almost too good, it looks like factory distressing.

He’s definitely going about things the right way, even though it’s taking a while.  Last thing you want is finding out your machined parts have tons of issues, when you could have figured that out the cheap / easy way in 3d printing.

6:52 – LOL what the.. 😂 that’s awesome the gun is actually in Fallout new Vegas.  haha complete with spongebob tape and all.

Thoughts?  Hopefully .50BMG ammo isn’t $50 per round by the time they are for sale.

I gave Brandon AK-50.com a couple years back.  I was hoping to give it to him when the project was getting close to done, but since it was taking so long I didn’t want to keep paying renewal fees so I gave it to him early.  He hasn’t used it for anything yet, but hopefully it makes its debut with the completed gun.

You know how thirsty I am for new AK-50 content:

1:10 – Is that Costa tape on Brandon’s arm?  Bold.

1:32 – The AK-50 is looking BEEFY. I like it.

6:25 – Oh man, seeing that round eject.  That must have been amazing for them.  You love to see it. 😊🇺🇸

The trials and tribulations of a gun builder.



We the people keep badgering Brandon to finish the AK-50.. so he gives us updates.  The circle of life:

Really cool to hear about the changes.  “Building in public” has become popular over the past few years with software, but Brandon is still the only guy (that I know of) working on such an ambitious project in the gun community whose talking about the steps a long the way.  I wish more people would take his lead.  If you know of any others let me know so I can take a look.

Oh yea if you like the t-shirt Brandon is wearing, it’s the Pro-Second Amendment t-shirt from ENDO 😊.  You can’t see the back in the video but it says If you can’t handle me at my “well regulated militia” you don’t deserve me at my “shall not be infringed”.

Thoughts?  I realize my posting is quite sporadic nowadays, but I’m trying to work on keeping a regular schedule again.  I have a big backlog of videos to watch.

Holy, Brandon is getting VERY close to 1M followers 👀


Always awesome to see this thing in action:

1:39 – hahah .50 BMG is so epic.  The energy in that round literally never gets old.

3:12 – wtf.. the bruthers have been body shaming Brandon in the comments?  You hate to see it.

7:54 – The off-brand carbonated sugar water in the fridge was epic.

8:42 – So interesting that he’s going to a stamped receiver.  Yea definitely a lot cheaper than CNC’ing out such a huge piece of metal over and over again.


A living legend interviewed by TFBTV:

6:40 – Those dual springs are really cool.  Interesting way to solve that problem they ran into also.

8:49 – Holy, that is a beefy rear trunnion and recoil spring.

I’m really excited for Brandon to finish it someday and start selling them.  Good to hear he’s still working on it for sport / passion project.  Once you start taking pre-orders and people’s money, that would really suck the fun out of it.

Thoughts?  I’m assuming if you read this blog you already follow Brandon’s shenanigans on YouTube.. but if not his channel is at the link.


Brandon with a dramatic trailer announcing the release of the AK-50 some Monday in May:

Cool, it definitely has been a long time but I’m really glad they never gave up.  I can’t wait to see that thing rip through a whole mag.

I’d be remiss if I never mentioned he was wearing a lot of ENDO t-shirts in the video. 😎
