But the police were talking to them...did you read the link?

The company’s founder, Mark Serbu, posted on the company’s Facebook page an email exchange between himself and a NYPD-FTS. The officer said that he was “assigned to the NYPD Firearms and Tactics Section. I have been directed to research a new semi-automatic .50 caliber platform for my department.”

The only 50 cal NYSP is going to be able to buy is a musket.

If it is a semi-auto, there are 5 companies making a shoulder fired .50 BMG:
RND 3000
Freshour Manufacturing - .50 Caliber Semi-automatic Rifle
Barrett
EDM Arms - M06 7.62 Cal NATO - Custom Cal Rifles 50 .308 gun guns Hurricane Utah Assault Rifle
Semi Auto Serbu 50

Mag fed, bolt action expands the number of companies even more. Single shot bolt action has a few more manufacturers. Finally, .50 cal AR-15 uppers the most common. But the number is still under 25 which is miniscule when you compare it to the number of companies making an AR-15.
