Hello fellow handgun enthusiast I am new to the forum and fairly new to the handgun scene, although I have shot & own several handguns mainly revolvers that I inherited or were handed down to me by relatives

I have just received my state handgun permit and am now looking to purchase a semi auto something in the line of .44 mag .357 mag or .50AE

The guns I have been looking at are manufactured by Magnum Research I do not own & have no prior experience with Magnum Research and was hoping you guys could shed a little light on the company and gun quality along with reliability

High pockets, thanks for the input it's very much appricated.
I grew up with name brands like Smith & Wesson, Ruger, Sig, Glock and the likes. When I saw the Magnum Research prices I figured I better do a little leg work before I dump $1800 on a brand I know nothing about

I own a .50AE Mark XIX and am very pleased with it. Hold it strong, and keep it clean, and you will never have a problem with it. Don't be fooled by the morons on Youtube who hit themselves in the head with it; I can shoot it one-handed no problem. It's big and heavy, and large-framed. I can shoot it very accurately. I love it. I have never had an experience with their customer service, however, so I can't comment on that.

Oh yes .50AE ammo is very expensive, lol.

Magnum research is an Israel company. I think some may now be made in the usa
they are very good and used in movies a lot
