The BFG-50A is a magazine-fed, semi-automatic, gas-operated .50 BMG rifle.

INCLUDED

- Bipod

- 10 Round Magazine

- Plano case with custom cut foam

DETAILS

It has a 3-lug rotating bolt, dual plunger ejectors, sliding plate extractor and hydraulic recoil buffer. The bolt locks into a barrel extension which is threaded to the barrel. The bolt lug and barrel extension locking surfaces are helical.

The gas system is similar to that used on a Ljungman AG-42 or MAS 49/56. As with our BFG-50 single-shot rifle, all our barrels are chambered with our own reamer design which allows surplus ammunition to be fired but gives far greater accuracy than can be achieved with barrels using a machine gun chamber. The BFG-50A uses a highly efficient 8-port "Shark Brake" muzzle brake. Barrel/barrel extension and handguard are removable to allow different barrel and handguard lengths and configurations.

FAQs

AMMO/SCOPE RECOMMENDATIONS

Scopes:

No matter which scope you get, make sure that it is rated for .50 BMG recoil. The two listed below both are.

SWFA Model SS - approx $350

Millet Model LRS - approx $400-450 depending on when and where you get it.

Ammo Suppliers:

Stay away from American Eagle in the black box, if possible. Soft brass getting stuck in the chamber and being difficult to extract has been a commonly reported problem. You're welcome to try it out for yourself, but please be aware of its issues.

Online suppliers such as Freedom Munitions, unammo.com, and 50bmgsupply.com are all great options.

Great ammo we currently test fire with: American Marksman .50 BMG M33 Ball Ammunition, 660 Grain, FMJ.

Best SEMI AUto 50 on the planet, for ReC or Serious Shooter

Written by Joe Opdahl on Apr 22nd 2019

Shoot a half dozen of these, before I went forward with this one. I am not ex-military, although appreciate those who serve. I bought a Serbu 50A, most satisfying gun I own. Shoot it regularly and the recoil is amazingly timid, the design is second to none, although there are some great alternatives out there. Accuracy is fantastic. Real quality build. Hope to stop by the factory soon, to thank Mark and crew personally.

BFG 50A is good but I prefer Barrett M107

Written by Matyu Thm on Nov 9th 2018

BFG 50A is good as I said, but M107 is just better gun. Dont get me wrong Serbu I like your guns too but I think Ronnie Barrett has made better firearm. US Army would agree with me since they use Barret .50 cal semi auto sniper system but not Serbu BFG 50A. So I rate 4 stars. Serbu there is no better gun than M107. But your guns are also OK.

A WORK IN PROGRESS

Written by David on Mar 3rd 2018

Mine is workable. I've had a few issues that, for the knowing user, can be overcome. Had an extractor break really quick and they replaced it. Gas tube broke and they had an upgraded design and fixed it. It is very finicky with ammo. I have a few loads I work with and nothing else. I load all my own and no longer vary any of it. It has a serious case of "it shits where it eats" as far as residue in the operating area, so requires diligent cleaning and moreso than the typical AR platform. I would like to have the option of a longer barrel (with gas tube, hand guard, and gas block) to take advantage of the fact that it is not recoil actuated (like Barrett) and work on accuracy. Would also like to have an adjustable gas block to be able to expand the high end of handloads. Otherwise, it's OK and less expensive than the Barrett and has potential for more accuracy.

Quality!

I am impressed with the fit and finish on this gun, all the parts look very nice and fit together well, the welds are nice and clean, the gun feels very well built. We had zero issues with function, it ate everything we fed it! I am so excited to get back out and do some more plinking with it, and I am looking forward to moving out to longer ranges next time. Recoil is so soft! My friend and I were amazed at how soft it is actually, that hydraulic recoil buffer is doing it's job very well knocking out much of the felt recoil. The trigger is very nice also, I had no issue whatsoever with it, it feels appropriate in terms of weight and has a very crisp break. I am absolutely satisfied with this gun. :)

FANTASTIC RIFLE

Written by Edwin Srkissian on Jan 19th 2018

I finally decided to write a review on the BFG-50A after using it for over a year. It’s an amazing rifle, I love my BFG-50A! It’s flawless and accurate, light weight and easy to operate. I haven’t had any issues with the rifle. I did use some dirty reload belt fed shells at one point and had a jam but that was it. Never happened again. The action is super smooth. It’s also easy to take apart and clean. Very little recoil, you can actually enjoy your shot and not break a shoulder. It also won’t break your wallet compared to other brands . I highly recommend it for anyone that wants to get into semiauto 50 cal. You won’t be disappointed. Also they have a great customer service and they stand behind their product. If you run into any issues, they will help you with any problems you come across. The owner of the company takes pride in his product and stands behind it, you won’t be just a number to him. If you'd like to see this rifle in action check out my channel at: www.YouTube.com/edwinsarkissian
