On Thursday I had the pleasure of meeting Mark Serbu and getting to fire a couple of shots through the new Serbu BFG-50A semi-auto .50 cal rifle. I was already familiar with his products as the Serbu Super-Shorty shotgun is often seen at the local machinegun shoots and in the occasional movie.
Serbu was function checking and breaking in some rifles that his company was getting ready so ship out. While his BFG-50 bolt action has been on the market for a while, the semi-auto 50A is relatively new. Firing this .50 was very pleasant, but it does provide bystander with a good bit of blast from its effective muzzle break. It uses the same mags as the Barrett M82/M107. Couple of the best things about the BFG-50A is that it is lighter, and cheaper then the Barrett semi-auto .50s. Sadly, due to high-winds knocking down target frames, we did not get to see how well the BFG-50A groups. I look forward to seeing more of these at the range.
Thanks to Mr. Serbu for answering my questions and letting me take his picture. He indicated that he is working on a pistol for his next project.
