Barrett Announces Shipment of 6mm ARC Rifles to US DoD

Barrett Firearms Manufacturing, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Hornady Manufacturing to chamber the REC7 rifle series in the new 6mm ARC offering. The first production run of these rifles has already been delivered on time to the United States Department of Defense, fulfilling a contract that was awarded to Barrett late last year.

The combination of the proven REC7 DI gas system and the potent 6mm ARC cartridge creates a product that is consistently accurate and easy to shoot. Carrying 24 rounds in the magazine, the 108 gr. ELD Match bullets leave the 18” Proof Research match grade stainless steel or carbon fiber barrel at over 2630 fps. This easily gives the rifle supersonic capabilities past 1000 yards.

Barrett anticipates these rifles will be available to the US commercial market after all US Military deliveries have been completed.

    Who exactly is receiving these and how many were delivered?

      It’s a command that has already conducted a combat eval. It’s also a sizeable contract with a long time frame, if not already apparently due to sudden and vigorous manufacturer support once the NDA went away.

    Anyone know what magazines Barrett is providing with these guns?
