Tampa, FL --(Ammoland.com)- Serbu Firearms, Inc., manufacturer of state-of-the-art specialty firearms, announced today its new .50 BMG semi-automatic sniper rifle.

In development for more than seven years, the BFG -50A is a marvel of design and engineering.

Its gas operation means it is utterly reliable and the fixed barrel means you don’t have to make excuses for the poor accuracy associated with recoil-operated guns incorporating moving barrels that never return to the same place twice.

At 23 pounds it is by far the lightest semi-auto .50 BMG rifle ever put into production and with a list price of $6,700 it costs thousands less than competitor’s offerings. Law enforcement agencies and military personnel are thoroughly impressed with every aspect of this rifle. Serbu Firearms will be showcasing its BFG-50A at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas January 15th-18th in booth # 20645.

“The accuracy, ease of shooting and reliability of the BFG-50A far surpasses any other semi-auto .50 BMG rifle on the market,” said Captain Satterfield, head of Georgia’s Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office sniper team. “My fellow snipers and I are sincerely appreciative of the support and expertise provided by Serbu Firearms throughout our testing and purchasing process.”

The BFG-50A has achieved .5 MOA accuracy at 400 yards, a feat impossible with any other semi-automatic .50 BMG rifle. Its nitrided alloy steel barrel features the exclusive Serbu Accuracy Chamber, which allows shooters to fire standard surplus as well as match ammunition and fire either more accurately than guns equipped with machine gun chambers. Field stripping takes seconds and is accomplished with nothing more than a bullet point. However, stripping is not required for transporting in its case; the 51.5” overall length means it comes out of the case fully assembled and ready to go. The hand guard and barrel/barrel extension are easily replaced, making configuration or caliber changes easy and the incredibly effective Shark Brake muzzle brake coupled with a thick butt pad and hydraulic buffer make the BFG-50A the lightest recoiling .50 BMG rifle available.

“The BFG-50A is the lightest, best built, most reliable and accurate .50 BMG caliber semi-auto sniper rifle ever put into production -period,” said Mark Serbu, designer of the rifle and president of Serbu Firearms. “Law enforcement, government agencies and militaries can rest assured this rifle will surpass all expectations and mission requirements.”

      Hi,

      How do I purchase / order one of these weapons?
      I have an FFL for West Coast Armory in Bellevue, WA.

      thanks,

      Ken

    3. [...] After seven years of development, Serbu Firearms Announces World’s Best .50 BMG Semi-Auto Rifle The company claims better accuracy, reliability and price than ArmaLite, Barrett, et al. “Law enforcement, government agencies and militaries can rest assured this rifle will surpass all expectations and mission requirements.” Hey! What about us? ammoland.com [...]

    4. Sounds great! But try to order one. What good is promoting a product that can’t be purchased?

      I have one on order and every time I call I get “two more weeks”. Then I call in 2 weeks and I get “two more weeks”… and the cycle repeats itself.

      It is very frustrating. Mark may have the best 50 cal out there but Serbu Firearms has some SERIOUS production hurdles to get over before this is firearm is really a viable offering that can compete with Barrett. Barrett may not be as accurate but I rather have a rifle that shoots pretty close to center than a rifle that shoots in the center that I can only have a picture of.

      As it is now, the B50A is nothing more than a novelty occasionally seen in the market and that will not change until Mark gets his production issues sorted out and starts delivering these in earnest. Unhappy customers does not bode well for reputation management.

    5. I bought one and I LOVE IT! Recoil is less than my BFG-50 bolt-action gun, but more than my AR-50. It’s accurate, well made, a sraight-forward design, and simple to COMPLETELY dissasemble.

      :)

      It’s a hoot to shoot!!!

      when will they be available ?

    7. Reliable??? Not unless there has been some improvement since I purchased mine in 2011. I’ve never run through a full 10 round mag without 2 or 3 jams even after over 100 round of break in. Great paperweight!

    8. Why do you want a sniper rifle? Typical americans, gun nutters.

      How about, shooting competitions, hunting(some, legally to hunt, animals are quite large and you need to have distance from them or they scent you out and run), target practice and the most important one being because it’s legal. Typical gun grabber, nut!
