16 Apr 2017 Guns and Ammo Rifle of the Year
Barrett® Fieldcraft™ has been honored as Guns and Ammo’s 2017 Rifle of the Year. According to Guns and Ammo staff, the Fieldcraft stood out from its toughest competitors due to its balance in offering lightweight handling and reliable, sub-minute accuracy for those headed to the most challenging terrains. Guns and Ammo editors, contributors, and staff determined the winner for each category on a point system relating to three criteria. First, the product must be new and available for purchase. Second, the product must demonstrate quality and reliability to a degree that met or exceeded its design objective. Lastly, the winner offered the greatest appeal to the masses. According to Guns and Ammo, the Fieldcraft is an exceptional design. “Barrett has crafted one of the finest hunting rifles in existence and is fit to be named as this year’s best.” Read more details of the Rifle of the Year award in the December 2017 issue of Guns and Ammo magazine.
