Barrett is well-known in both law enforcement and military circles. So it should come as no shock that military units are already purchasing the Barrett REC10.

You’re reading that correctly, as confirmed by Barrett. The REC10 isn’t even commercially available yet, which says a lot about the rifle.

“Barrett’s one of those unique companies that has an astronomical number of individual style weapons in use by the military—maybe not the most number of guns, but the greatest variety of guns,” Athlon Outdoors personality Fred Mastison said. “Pretty much everything that Barrett makes is in use by the military somewhere around the world.”

Mastison got exclusive time with the Barrett REC10 at the recent Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous in Gateway, Colo.

“This gun is really a product of Barrett DNA,” Mastison said. “Everything that they put into every gun that they make is found in this gun. You’ll see it immediately in the fit and finish, the tolerances are very tight, and you can tell right away that it’s a quality gun.”

Considered the “big brother” to Barrett’s well-known REC7, the REC10 is chambered in .308, 6.5 Creedmoor and .260 Remington.

MSRP for the REC10 is $2,750.
