Bought an Armalite 50 BMG for my husband for Christmas last year, but he has yet to shoot it.  Not sure what the hold-up is, but I'm guessing it doesn't help that he doesn't have all the accessories he needs.  Looking for the best scope for this gun to give as another gift.  Any suggestion/help is appreciated!  Looking for the best product, not necessarily the best deal.  

Thanks so much!

Sounds like you are a heck of a wife with a gift like that, and he is insensitive not to shoot it. If you plan to continue to give gifts like that and need a new husband let me know....👍😉

Hahaha...thanks! I'm willing to spend up to the $2000 range. Not sure how much those things go for, but am willing to spend a decent amount if it's worth it.

My wife bought me a Hensoldt… rated to 50BMG, but it is on my 338 Lapua Magnum.  6-24x72… it is an astronomical telescope designed to fit on a rifle for long range, low visibility situations.  It is the top of the line...

However, you(he) would be well served with a SWFA 5-20x50… All the SWFA scopes are designed for 50BMG capability.  The 5-20 is more than adequate and as tough as scopes get.

+1 for SWFA. I have the 20x fixed sight on my 50 with zero problems. Your hubby better appreciate you for for that kind of gift. Lucky guy.
