Serbu Firearms tells NYPD “No Gun For You!”

How would you like to be the guy who sent this email to Mr. Serbu.

Mr. Serbu,

My name is XXXXXXXX. I am assigned to the NYPD Firearms and Tactics Section. I have been directed to research a new semi-automatic .50 caliber platform for my department.

Two weeks ago I spoke to Deanne at your office regarding the possibility of obtaining one of your rifles for test and evaluation.

If you would please get back to me either way regarding this proposal I would appreciate it.



The answer he got was exactly as I hoped.


Yes, I got the message and tried to return the call but got no answer. I appreciate your interest in our BFG-50A; I’m sure it would be an excellent addition to your department’s arsenal. Unfortunately, we have a policy of selling to state law enforcement agencies only what is allowed to be sold to private citizens in that state. Since the passage of the NY SAFE act, the BFG-50A is considered an assault weapon and as such is no longer available to private citizens in the state of New York. Therefore we have to respectfully decline to supply your department with BFG-50A rifles.

THIS is the New York Boycott. Thank you Mark Serbu. You’ve been added to the New York Boycott list.

  1. YES!!! 🙂

  2. Most gratifying.

  3. I spoke directly with Mark Serbu several years ago when I was purchasing one of his products. And this email exactly mirrors the upstanding guy I felt he was. I won’t quote him exactly as I don’t have his permission, but I will say that he was none too pleased about the prospect of the current administration coming to power. Good on Serbu Firearms for joining this boycott.
