First Look: Barrett REC7 DI Pistol

The latest model out from Barrett is an addition to the company's popular REC7 DI lineup, which now features a REC7 DI AR-15 in a pistol format for a limited time.

The new REC7 DI pistol features a 10.25-inch barrel and comes in at an overall length of 24.75 inches. The total weight of the new gun is 5.45 pounds and ships with a 20-round Magpul PMag. The gun is finished in a black Cerakote coating and features a Magpul MOE pistol grip, along with a Magpul enlarged trigger guard. The fore-end of the gun is Barrett's own enhanced BRS handguard design and features KeyMod attachment points.

The AR pistol is constructed with a match-grade barrel made with stainless steel and uses the company's own high-efficiency muzzle device to reduce recoil. The gun also features an oversized charging handle for easy racking of the pistol, along with a specially designed gas block that features a nut-retention device for extra durability. The gun features a continuous flattop rail that reaches to the end of the fore-end, giving users a lengthened sight radius for irons or plenty of room for optics mounting.

The REC7 DI pistol is equipped with the Gearhead Works Tailhook MOD 1 pistol brace, which is billed as the most compact pistol brace on the market today. The brace measures less than 1 inch thick and provides users with a shelf that works to counter the forward weight of an AR pistol, allowing the shooter's wrist to relax and focus on controlling the trigger. The brace is made from solid aluminum and clamps to pistol buffer tubes ranging from 1.17-1.2 inches in diameter.

The Barrett REC7 DI pistol is available in 5.56 NATO and .300 BLK and available only for a limited time. The suggested retail price on the gun is $1,899.
