Below written by Guncrafter Industries on the 50 GI cartridge & firearm. Introduced in 2004 and developed from the
ground up specifically for their Model No.1 pistol. It is a very strong, thick walled cartridge which, when loaded, is
approximately the same over-all length as a 45 ACP round. Due to the large caliber,
the cartridge operates at relatively low pressures and has a long reloading life. The concept was to create a practical
.50 caliber 1911 without unnecessary bulk or weight, but with increased  knock-down power. Factory loads for the
50 GI  typically drives a 300 grain bullet at 700 -725 fps, which translates into a 210 power factor. This is achieved
without loss of controllability. Firing this load feels comparable to shooting a standard .230 hard ball factory round.  
However, the 50 GI is a very versatile cartridge and can be loaded to higher or lower levels, as desired.  Another factory
load drives the same 300 grain bullet at 900 fps and puts some serious stopping power downrange, while still being quite
controllable for the seasoned 45 ACP shooter.
The 50 GI  is a Proprietary Cartridge.
Outside case diameter of the 50 GI is .526" compared to the 45 ACP at .469".
The 50 GI rim is an extremely rebated cartridge and availible in 3 loadings
