Contact Lee Hutchins. He makes .50 Cals in both aircraft and heavy barrel

One note - The recoil from a .50 is impressive. It can actually cause the
front of a jeep to lift off the ground during prolonged fire. During WW2,
side stays (struts) were sometimes used on Jeeps (MB/GPW) when firing a .50
over the side so it wouldn't flip.

I don't see a problem with mounting a .50 on a Mity Mite. Just be prepared
for a little "FlaK" from some of the vets (and purist nit-pickers). An M-60
might be more appropriate (although not near as impressive).
