Bigger is better

Ive read about it but dont really see a point and it really is cost prohibtive not only the gun but the ammo and even reloading stuff for it ..
If im going 50 im going Hugeeeee I mean big
Neat ideal thoug but ive also heard of some problems no this was early on when they first came out problems with barrel contact shearing lugs and then.. Timing type issues
Wish i could find the issue on it again

I'd think there would have to be problems. Maybe they can resolve them but there's bound to be much more wear and tear on the gun in .50 cal. and as you pointed out the sheared lugs and timing would be at the top of the list, probably followed by short frame life.

If I'm going .50 it will be a .500 S&W . No real advantages I see with a .50 auto over the .45ACP.

Strikes me as pointless trying to push 1911 platform that far beyond its design potential.
If folks really do want .50 in an auto then a DE is probably the way to go - provided the dimensions and weight are acceptable.
Mind you - never really been ''bitten'' by wish to get a DE tho - on Sunday shot a guy's DE in .357 - and it was quite a pleasant shooter - dead on at 100 yds!

I wouldn't personaly buy one, I am too much in love with the .45 round.

It looks like the .50GI would make a good defensive round, would put a hell of a hole in someone.
