  17. Just yesterday Tactical-Life reported that Barrett’s MRAD won the coveted U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) Advanced Sniper Contract. Meanwhile, Barrett just released more info to Tactical-Life, including caliber information and comments from two proud Barretts, Ronnie and Chris. RELATED STORY US Army Awards Barrett .50 Caliber Sniper Rifle Contract Firstly, the U.S. Department of Defense announced the award on Monday. Moreover, Barrett announced in a press release the MRAD (Multi-Role Adaptive Design) Rifle as the new Advanced Sniper Rifle in support of USSOCOM. USSOCOM announced in 2016 they were in search of a modular, multi-caliber bolt action sniper rifle capable of converting between 7.62x51mm, .300 Norma Magnum (NM) and .338 Norma Magnum (NM) through a “full and open competition.” Further, the Barrett MRAD is designed with precision and modularity in mind and will serve the U.S. special operations teams in their efforts, according to Barrett. Proud Barretts, Father & Son, On MRAD Winning SOCOM Contract “I remember Chris telling me that ‘this is what all precision rifles will look like one day!’ and he was right, said Ronnie Barrett, Founder and CEO. “However, aesthetics is not all that makes this rifle; as his development persisted, he was able to achieve more than I ever thought possible. I genuinely believe this is the most accurate rifle in the world.” Ronnie (left) and Chris Barrett celebrate Barrett’s latest honor.There has never been a time in US History that both a father and son have each fielded a military-designated rifle system until now: Ronnie with the M107 and Chris with the MRAD, according to Barrett. “This feels like the highest honor I could ever achieve professionally to have a rifle adopted by the US Military, and especially USSOCOM,” said Chris Barrett, President. Barrett MRAD Features The Barrett MRAD rifle system utilizes a monolithic upper receiver machined from 7000-series aluminum. A full-length Picatinny rail provides generous mounting surface for both day and night optics. Also, the rail features built-in taper in keeping with the rifle’s intended role of long-range engagement. Further, Barrett placed additional accessory mounting surfaces at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions. Arguably the biggest highlight of the MRAD platform is the system’s barrel interchangeability. After loosening only two bolts via a standard Torx wrench, the user can then change between several different calibers or barrel lengths. Additionally, MRAD chamberings include .338 Lapua Magnum, .338 Norma Mag., .300 Norma Mag., .300 PRC, .300 Win. Mag., .308 Win., 7mm Rem. Mag., 6.5 Creedmoor and .260 Rem. Also, barrel lengths include 17, 20, 22, 24 and 26 inches. For more information, visit barrett.net.

  19. The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a lawsuit against Remington, filed by the parents of children killed in the 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, can proceed. Justices narrowly voted 4-3 allowing the lawsuit to move forward. The lawsuit challenges how Remington marketed the Bushmaster AR-15 used at Sandy Hook to younger shooters. A lower-court judge dismissed the lawsuit in 2016, referencing that Remington is protected under federal law. New Ruling From the Connecticut Supreme Court The 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) protects firearms manufacturers from being held liable for mass shooting. So what changed Thursday? The judges found an exemption to the PLCAA that allows the plaintiffs to challenge Remington’s marketing tactics. According to a report from Reuters, the Connecticut Supreme Court said the families could present their claims via an “exemption to the 2005 federal shield law, basing it on a Connecticut consumer protection statute.” The court said PLCAA did not bar wrongful marketing claims and unethical advertising of dangerous products for illegal purposes and that plaintiffs could pursue those claims under state law. Three dissenting judges rejected that finding, saying the federal gunmaker shield law did not include such exceptions. Joshua Koskoff, who represents the plaintiffs, accused Remington of targeting “high-risk users” with its marketing tactics. “The families’ goal has always been to shed light on Remington’s calculated and profit-driven strategy to expand the AR-15 market and court high-risk users, all at the expense of Americans’ safety. Today’s decision is a critical step toward achieving that goal,” Koskoff said in a statement. Firearms Industry Response An industry leader with close knowledge of the case, who wished to remain anonymous, spoke with Personal Defense World. He said the marketing allegation is simply a form of “judicial gymnastics.” Meanwhile, the National Shooting Sports Foundation released a statement that condemned the ruling: “The Connecticut Supreme Court today reversed (4-3) a state Superior Court ruling; it decided in Soto v. Bushmaster that the case can go forward based on the plaintiffs’ allegation that the defendants marketing and advertising of a legal product somehow violated Connecticut’s Unfair Trade Practices Act (CUTPA). The Court’s split decision held that CUTPA fit within an exemption to the PLCAA. The exemption permits lawsuits where the defendant violated a statute applicable to the sale of firearms. “In a strongly worded and well-reasoned dissent, Chief Justice Robinson rejected the majority’s overly broad interpretation of the scope of the limited exception, which is contrary to legislative text, cannons of statutory interpretation and the legislative history of the PLCAA. The majority’s decision today is at odds with all other state and federal appellate courts that have interpreted the scope of the exception. As the trade association for the firearms industry, the National Shooting Sports Foundation filed an amicus brief in support of the defendants in this case and both respectfully disagrees with and is disappointed by the court’s majority decision.” Remington has not commented, as of publishing time. Personal Defense will continue to monitor the situation.
