This tough-as-nails rifle was designed specifically to answer the call for a low-maintenance, Reliability-Enhanced Carbine.
The REC7 rifle’s dependability stems largely from its innovative operating system. Using a minimum number of parts, the piston system separates heat and powder residue from the bolt carrier and trigger assembly. The rifle runs cool and clean, reducing maintenance and lubrication requirements therefore increasing endurance.
The patented, chrome-lined, fluted gas block prevents excessive carbon buildup. The one-piece 17-4 stainless piston transfers energy to the anti-tilt bolt carrier. Machined from a monolithic block of 8620 steel, the carrier features an integral piston strike face.
The Barrett Enhanced Bolt is made from high-strength 9310 steel. The bolt is designed specifically for use in the piston operated REC7, not just adapted from a direct gas bolt.
The bolt’s gas-ring-free design is easy to clean. Reinforced at critical areas, every bolt is proofed and magnetic particle inspected to guarantee reliable performance.
At the heart of the operating system is a nitrided, two-position, forward-venting gas plug that retains the piston. The gas plug features a suppressor ready position and is tuned specific to caliber and barrel length. The piston can be accessed through the front of the gas block without removing the handguard so optical sights or laser devices maintain zero after routine maintenance.
The REC7 rifle’s forged 7000 series aluminum upper and lower receivers are Type 2 hardcoat anodized and Cerakote finished. The lower houses a dependable single-stage trigger while the upper supports a free-floating, chrome-lined barrel with M4 feed ramps machined into the receiver.
Available in 5.56 NATO or 6.8 SPC, the REC7 is everything you’d expect from a Barrett rifle, and then some.
Leider gibt es für diesen Aussteller kein deutsches Firmenprofil.
More than thirty years ago, Ronnie Barrett built something no one thought possible - a shoulder-fired .50 caliber rifle so innovative, the Army itself would sing its praises. From sketching his designs at the dining room table to working with a local tool and die maker to create parts that didn’t yet exist, every millimeter of the Model 82 was a direct result of Ronnie’s passion for the ultimate firearm.
That obsession still fuels our company today.
Headquartered in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Barrett is the world leader in large-caliber rifle design and manufacturing. Our products are used by civilian sport shooters, law enforcement agencies, the United States military and more than 73 State Department approved countries across the world.
And we continue to grow. In fact, we recently moved into a new state-of-the-art corporate headquarters, allowing us to expand our research and development, manufacturing, quality control and shipping capabilities.
No matter how successful we become, however, our story keeps evolving. Because, at Barrett, we don’t believe in resting on our laurels. In fact, we take great pride in thinking outside the box and exploring ways to continue to improve. After all, if there’s one thing our success has taught us, it’s this: You’re only as good as your last accomplishment.
It’s one thing to manufacture guns, and another to live and breathe them. Whether we’re carefully assembling our latest rifle, engineering scope rings that are stronger than ever or increasing the velocity and precision of the ammunition itself - we’re always working with one goal in mind: absolute perfection.
