Barrett 6mm ARC Rifle Shipment to U.S. DOD Announced

Barrett Firearms Manufacturing, Inc. announced it has partnered with Hornady Manufacturing to chamber the REC7 rifle series in the new 6mm ARC offering.

Barrett 6mm ARC Rifle Shipment to U.S. DOD Announced

The first production run of these rifles has been delivered to the United States Department of Defense, fulfilling a contract that was awarded to Barrett late last year.

The combination of the REC7 DI gas system and the 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, giving the rifle supersonic capabilities past 1000 yards.

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