At the Range: Barrett M107A1

At the Range: Barrett M107A1

barrett_m107_a1_suppressA redesigned version of the original M82A1/M107, the new Barrett M107A1 is engineered to be lighter and stronger than its predecessor.

Built with a one piece aluminum receiver that features an integrated optics rail, the .50 BMG M107A1 weighs five pounds less than earlier Barretts and is designed for use with the QDL suppressor.

The Barrett quick-detach QDL suppressor significantly reduces sound decibels and muzzle blast. It also features a removable muzzle brake to reduce recoil, and is available in black or FDE Cerakote.

In the web exclusive photo gallery and video below, we test the suppressed M107A1 with 661-grain .50 BMG rounds at the Academi Training Facility in Moyock, North Carolina.


Like the M107 and M82 before it, the M107A1 is chambered for the .50BMG round, and the M107A1's detachable box magazine is capable of holding 10 rounds.
At 28 pounds, the new Barrett M107A1 is five pounds lighter than the M107.
The M107A1 is optimized for use with Barrett's QDL Suppressor. It features an all new bolt carrier group that is key to making the rifle suppressor-ready.

Several G&A editors were able to comfortably stand near the suppressed M107A1 until a 250-round ammo can was empty.
The M107A1 incorporates an integrated optics rail and a four-port cylindrical muzzle brake that is compatible with the QDL Suppressor.
To reduce weight, Barrett chose to use a lightweight, one-piece aluminum upper receiver and a titanium bipod.

Guns & Ammo TV: 6.5 Creedmoor vs. .375 H&H

The 6.5 Creedmoor and the .375 H&H are almost complete opposites, or are they? The 6.5 Creedmoor is a newer and popular cartridge that transcends long-range precision rifle shooting and hunting big game. The .375 H&H is more than a century old, but still a popular and versatile choice for hunting big and dangerous game. For this shoot, Pro Tom Beckstrand, former U.S. Army Special Operations officer and sniper team leader, faces off against Guns & Ammo TV cameraman Ben LaLonde in a challenge that highlights the differences between these two cartridges.

Guns & Ammo TV: Shooting 1,270 Yards with the 5.56 NATO

Guns & Ammo Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand was on location in Idaho where he pushed the limits of the 5.56 NATO cartridge in this segment of “Long Range Tech” for Guns & Ammo TV. Pairing a SIG Sauer MCX Virtus rifle loaded with Hornady's 73-grain ELD-M ammunition, Beckstrand attempted to ring steel set at 1,270 yards, an incredible distance for any 5.56-chambered rifle and beyond the typical range for an AR-15.
