Bayamon Police Team Up with Battle Rifle Company

Bayamon, Puerto Rico-(Ammoland.com)- The Bayamon, Puerto Rico Police Department has completed its first order of rifles from Battle Rifle Company of Houston, Texas. The BR4 Diablo standard short-barreled rifle with flip-up sights was selected to serve the department.

The Diablo is Battle Rifle Company’s version of the military MK-18 platform and was selected as the basis for the build. In addition, certain custom features were added according to the department's needs. This configuration was selected to standardize the weapons in the department for the SWAT Team.

Bayamon, Puerto Rico is one of the largest cities located just west of the capitol of San Juan. With a population of over 200,000 citizens, Bayamon is still recovering from the 2017 hurricane season. The city is rebuilding its officer force and implementing new equipment programs to deal with the demands of the hurricane recovery. The high rate of crime that often follows such devastation is a great concern to the city. The new rifles will be issued to the SWAT team for cases such as warrant work, vehicle hijacking, drug interdiction and more. Bayamon SWAT is the only certified SWAT team on the island, and many departments turn to them for assistance.

“This was our first international deal, and we are very proud to be able to equip such an important and prestigious department,” said Chris Kurzadkowski, owner of Battle Rifle Company. The rifles were delivered personally by Kurzadkowski, where he had the opportunity to do orientation for the officers in Spanish.

Bayamon has consistently finished high in the Florida SWAT Roundup competition each year they have participated while using old and outdated rifles. With the addition of their new Diablo rifles, they will likely be a powerhouse for this year’s competition.

Puerto Rico is a beautiful place, unfortunately historically plagued by political corruption.
During my US Army career, I served with a number of troops from Puerto Rico.
We should promote any opportunity to display and encourage traditional American values to those who welcome our efforts.

Shame on Battle Rifle Company. You feel perfectly comfortable selling your product to a police dept, in a US Territory where the residents are virtually prohibited from having any means of defending themselves. You perpetuate the “only ones” class that is so abhorrent in a free society. I urge all gun owners to NEVER do business with this company.

“Virtually Prohibited”? From possessing a firearm? You’re mis-informed. P.R. limits ownership to 2 guns & limits the amount of ammo that one can purchase per year, unless you obtain permits to increase both due to being a target shooter or hunter. You have to jump through some hoops to get a license to buy a gun, but the residents are far from ‘virtually prohibited’ from owning them. Getting a license for concealed carry is a different situation as that’s likely to not happen unless you’re related to someone or otherwise ‘in the loop’ with the Govt…..so P.R. is is no… Read more »

You are correct and I stand corrected. I had misunderstood that you could not own AR’s, hence my comment. Their laws are still far more restrictive than need be as there is no recognized “peaceable journey” provision which is problematic. That said, I withdraw my original comment but still wouldn’t want to live there with all the fees and paperwork! 🙂

@3mf, Sounds like virtual prohibition to me. I bought three firearms in January, one in February, and another two days ago! Ownership limited to two guns? That sounds very prohibitive.
Sounds like the government of PR is trespassing on Congress’s exclusive Commerce Power and their Constitutionally enumerated Second Amendment Civil Rights.
