The Barrett REC7 is a powerful and reliable rifle styled in the familiar AR configuration. It’s a no-nonsense rifle designed specifically for those who must have a completely trustworthy, compact rifle that requires little maintenance and delivers conclusive results.
The REC7’s dependability stems from its innovative operating system. Using a minimum number of parts, a piston system separates heat and powder residue from the bolt carrier and trigger assembly. The rifle runs cool and clean resulting in increased cleaning intervals and reduced likelihood of stoppage.
The 17-4 stainless piston moves energy captured in the chrome-lined gas block to the bolt carrier. The bolt carrier, machined from a monolithic block of 8620 steel, features a piston strikeface that is integral to it. There is no separate gas key to shoot loose. The chrome-plated bolt is silky smooth, easy to clean, free of gas rings, and is purposely sized for the 6.8 SPC cartridge.
At the heart of the system is the chrome-plated gas regulator that retains the piston. The piston can be accessed through the gas block without removing the handguard, optical sights do not need to be rezeroed after routine maintenance. The top of the gas block also has an integral 1913 rail, extending the rail length for mounting accessories.
The REC7’s forged 7075 aluminum upper and lower receivers are type 3 hardcoat anodized. The lower houses an ultra-dependable, single-stage combat trigger. The upper supports a free-floated, 16-inch, chrome-lined barrel with M-4 feed ramps machined into both receiver and the barrel extension. An efficient A-2 style flash hider reduces recoil. The REC7 is optimized for optical sights and its A.R.M.S. 50 M-CV mounting system is ideal for user-specified accessories.
The REC7 is ideal for hunting medium-sized game, and it’s fun to shoot. It was also built for someone whose life depends on a gun that works both in his hands and down range.
The REC7 is what you expect in a Barrett. Reliable. Powerful.
