The 1,000th MRAD (Multi-Role Adaptive Design) Mark 22 MOD 0 (MK22) rifle destined for use in the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) Advanced Sniper Rifle and United States Army Precision Sniper Rifle programs rolled out of Barrett Firearms Manufacturing in November.
The thing that scares most first-time .50 BMG shooters is the anticipation of recoil. The .50 BMG is a huge cartridge, much larger than any common hunting rifle cartridge. It's a scary proposition to lie down behind the rifle for the first time, not knowing what to expect.
Barrett Firearms Manufacturing, known for its iconic rifles, celebrates 40 years of providing top-quality firearms this year.
Barrett Firearms Manufacturing partnered with Hornady Manufacturing to chamber its REC7 rifle series in the new 6 mm ARC (Advanced Rifle Cartridge) cartridge and the first production run of these rifles has been delivered to the United States Department of Defense.
