You need to fab up some kind of travel lock for the 249.
Glad your not planning on shooting anything live off that mount . The 50 would rip it right out of the floor.

Ditto on 50 ripping it out of the floor, you need some stabilizer bars if you go 4 wheeling with a .50 just sitting on that mount.
It looks fabulous, but if you want to go a 'next step' make it tougher with two legs to the front (or rear) of the fender area, then it could also act as a rollbar in a pinch. :wink:
Good job, now all the LEO :? and local Liberals are going to have fits :x when they see it driving down the street.
A guy stopped me once with his wife in a car and declared I couldn't have a .50 (I was driving my Brothers GPW).....I corrected him on our rights of possession and ATF regulations, and as a final twist pointed out it was made out of wood (excellent 1:1 model he built) before i popped the clutch and left him hanging out his window.
