Barrett has nailed it with their new piston-operated 6.8 SPC REC7 (which stands for Reliably Enhanced Carbine, engineered in ‘07). The REC7 uses a forged 7075 aluminum upper and lower receiver. It has an ultra-reliable single-stage combat trigger. The upper supports a free-floated, chrome-lined 16-inch barrel with an M4-style feed ramp machined into the receiver and the barrel extension.
To accommodate SOCOM gear including optics, lasers, lights and bipods, the REC7 is equipped with the A.R.M.S. SIR (Selective Integrated Rail) accessory mounting system. A fully adjustable #40 L backup rear sight is standard on each model. This new REC7 also has Barrett’s gas block that is threaded for a Barrett suppressor and also provides a solid base for the folding front sight.
