10 Jan The new MRAD Long-Range Precision Rifle
(Murfreesboro, TN) Barrett, a company internationally known for providing high-end firearms, optics, ammunition and training, announces the newest addition to their respected line of long-range precision rifles. The MRAD™ has been in development with input and feedback from military and law enforcement users for the past year and is now available to the commercial market.
MRAD is a much-anticipated addition to the Barrett line and has caught the attention of discerning clients who appreciate this rifle’s ultimate accuracy and operational enhancements. Modularity is exemplified in the MRAD’s user-changeable barrel system that can be removed by simply unscrewing two bolts using a standard Torx wrench. This unique design paves the way for future caliber interchangeability and serviceability.
Adaptable to any user, the MRAD has a length-of-pull that can be set to five different positions with the push of a single button and a consistent rifle-to-user interface is achieved with an adjustable cheek piece. Any possible combination of day or night optic can be accommodated with the 27.5-inch, 30 moa optic rail, and the match-grade trigger module is drop-fire proof, adjustable and easily accessed for maintenance. Both thumb-operated safety and ambidextrous magazine release can be used intuitively while retaining a firing grip and cheek weld.
Enhancing portability, the MRAD’s stock folds in, yet locks out solidly to create a rigid platform for consistent firing. MRAD follows in the tradition of the Barrett M107, where durability and ruggedness meet precision and accuracy. At only 14.8 pounds, MRAD offers a portable marksmanship solution capable of out to 2000 yards.
Barrett is a family-owned and operated company specializing in high performance rifle systems and accessories. Barrett manufactures rifles, ammunition and optic accessories in addition to training for civilian sport shooters, law enforcement agencies, the US military and over 63 foreign allied militaries worldwide.
