Long-Awaited Barrett REC10 Set to Debut at SHOT Show

Recommended Posts

Barrett Firearms Manufacturing recently announced its newest, contract-winning firearm: The Barrett REC10. The U.S. military selected the REC10 as a medium caliber, long-range rifle. The REC10 is now available in .308 Win., making it equally suitable for duty or sport.

“We’ve been working on the REC10 behind-the-scenes for more than two years,” said Chris Barrett, President, Barrett Firearms. “Before we bring a rifle to market, we have to know it meets the standards of the most demanding users in the world – the armed forces. Winning this contract further confirms, we’ve done our job.”

Barrett spent years of extensive engineering and exhaustive testing to produce the REC10 family of rifles. Moreover, the company claims it has perfected the semi-automatic .308 rifle, guaranteeing reliability, durability and accuracy.

Barrett REC10 Features

Living up to the Barrett name, the REC10 is built to withstand the demands of combat. Further, Barrett claims the REC10 features an optimized direct impingement gas system, one enabling both suppressed and unsuppressed fire. REC10 upper and lower receivers are machined from billet 7075-T6 aluminum. Each rifle also features full ambidextrous controls. Additionally, a slimline free-float aluminum handguard utilizes M-Lok attachment slots. Finally, a full-length Picatinny top rail provides a mounting option for sights and electro-optics.

Tactical Life first broke news of the new REC10 after getting range time with a pre-production model at the 2017 Athlon Outdoor Rendezvous:

“Running the REC10 at the Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous, it was accurate with Barrett’s proven reliability. Incredibly light, it points well and allowed for hits on steel at 100 yards and further using the iron sights,” wrote Dave Bahde in his initial review. “If you are in the market for a premium rifle from a proven builder, you’ll want to hold out for the Barrett REC10.”

Then in the February/March 2018 issue of “Tactical Weapons,” Fred Mastison wrote:

“In the end, the Barrett REC10 has the potential to set the standard in AR-10-style rifles. This is not just an off-the-cuff statement but one based on knowing what Barrett has accomplished in the past. Chris Barrett said it best when he told me that the REC10 has ‘Barrett DNA infused into a .308 platform’ and that he is very proud Barrett rifles are ‘rifles that the hardest users in the world trust.’ The REC10 is a solid weapon that is certain to change the semi-auto .308 world.”

REC10 Prize Package

The REC10 makes its official debut Jan. 22 at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas. To honor it debut, Barrett is giving away a complete REC10 system, complete with industry-leading components and accessories. The prize package is worth more than $7,500.
