07 Jun The 9-Axis Machine
Two years ago Barrett Firearms made a hefty investment in its manufacturing process. The yield of which was a 9-Axis machine and is the latest, most instrumental piece of hardware to make the rifles you know and love.
This million dollar beast feeds on raw bar stock and proceeds to cut, plane and drill at a speed which would make John Henry weep. What normally would have taken teams of skilled human labor 19 hours now only takes 17 minutes.
It’s easy to see why Barrett Firearms Manufacturing loves having a machine that makes rifle bolts, optic knobs, barrel extensions and a slew of other parts on-site. Without it, key parts on innovative designs such as the Model 98B and MRAD would have been outsourced. More capacity and less lead time make this machine well worth the investment for every Barrett fan in the world.
