The Pauza P-50 was a recoil-operated, semi-automatic anti-materiel rifle developed by Robert Pauza.[1][2] It was manufactured between 1991 and 1997, and sold by Pauza Specialties of Baytown, Texas;[3][4] later versions were produced by Freshour Manufacturing, a company from Texas City, Texas.[1][2] The rifle was developed to be a competitor to similar products by Barrett Firearms Manufacturing, although only 36 P-50s were produced.[2]

Variants[edit]

The rifle was produced in variants consisting of a sniper rifle and a carbine rifle,[5] both in .50 caliber.[6][7]
