.50 Action Express is a type of ammunition for firearms. It is classified as a (P)istol caliber, and was originally designed for the Desert Eagle, in order to provide the pistol platform with a .50 caliber option, which has since become the most popular and widely portrayed version of this handgun.

.50 is pronounced fifty Action Express.

This caliber may also be known as .50 AE, and sometimes as 12.7x33mm. It may also be referred to as simply .50, though it is not recommended, as it may be confused with the other .50 caliber cartridges in the game.
