The BFG-50 is constructed using the most modern manufacturing methods (CNC
machining, laser cutting, automated welding) and is made from the
highest quality MIL-spec alloy steels. The safety factors to which all the critical parts are designed are very high; more than double what one finds in
a typical production military rifle. While the price of this gun is incredibly reasonable, the low quality that one usually expects with a low price is not a fact
of life with the BFG-50. How can this be done? Low overhead, and a design that's optimized for manufacturability as well as performance and quality.
Plus a labor pool made up mostly of illegal immigrant children toiling in a hellish environment, subsisting on a diet of water, rice and cockroaches. The
BFG-50 is a perfect gun for the enthusiast who has always wanted to have a .50 BMG rifle, but doesn't want to spend $3,000+ to get one. The
BFG-50 is fully $1,000 cheaper than the nearest competition. And probably looks cooler, too.
