Default FBI Puts in Bid for Mega Rifles!

Anzio 20mm Vulcan Rifle (actually a cannon) with a 49″ barrel and a suppressor. The monster has a 5000 yard maximum range and costs about $12,000. It looks like something designed for combat in a war zone.

Anzio Ironworks specializes in high quality 50 BMG Rifles and Ammunition.


The FBI has placed a bid for two Anzios:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) intends to award a non-competitive, sole source purchase order to Anzio Ironworks Corporation, 1905 16th Street N, St. Petersburg, FL 33704 for two (2) Magfed 20mm Rifles and accessories in accordance with FAR 6.302-1, only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements.

The FBI intends to procure the following items:

Magfed 20mm Rifle with Belgian Camo Overcoat finish. Includes bipod, brake, handguard, free floated barrel and case (Qty: 1 each)

Magfed 20mm Rifle with Navy NWV Camo Duracoat finish. Includes bipod, brake, handguard, free floated barrel and case (Qty: 1 each)

Non-firing bolt assemblies (Qty: 2 each)

Extra magazines (Qty: 4 each)

Suppressors in 20mm (Qty: 2 each)

Two is not an arsenal, but one has to wonder why the FBI thinks it needs such firepower, especially such firepower with a suppressor (in other words, a silencer).

Is America’s political police force planning for combat?

Look at the size:

I don't think they are planning for anything..... Probably a Gunnie in charge of the purchase, wanting a couple of them to T&E..... Hell, If I had the dough, I'd buy three!!

Look at the size:

20MM ammo is available in a variety of configurations, including High Explosive Incendiary (HEI) and DU Sabot. A weapon that large is a defensive piece, which makes me even more concerned. You don't take it on patrol, you place it at the most effective apex and you protect it like Fort Knox. I used to tell my guys that 20mm doesn't make holes, it makes halves.
It is my hope that their intended use would be counter-terrorism, but I figure that some schmucks at the FBI found some unspent tax dollars and decided to build a T&E program around it which will end up with two retirees owning souvenir Mega-rifles.

oh come on, if you had the ability to purchase one of these for "work related purposes" tell me you wouldn't? I'm not suggesting it's a good use of tax money but I am saying, how many of us would look at this purchase order and not think to ourselves, I'm going to approve this so I can take a shot or two.

I find it hard to believe the FBI is actually going to "field" these rifles.

Even with the best of conditions, anything beyond about 200 yards takes an act of God for a greenlight.

With that rifle, not that it is not a great weapon platform, but the over-penetration possibilities would have ANY Attorney General wringing their hands until they bled prior to giving the order to shoot.

And no Yunus, if I had the chance to spend that kind of money on a long range rifle, I would not choose this rifle as my first choice. Or my third choice.
