Perfection isn’t accomplished overnight. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Barrett Model 82A1. For more than two decades, this short-recoil, semi-automatic series rifle has been carefully honed, studied and then refined again. The result is a feat of engineering so impossibly precise, it’s hard to believe it’s man-made.
Unlike other semi-automatic .50 BMG rifles, the Barrett Model 82A1 is completely reliable. Its chamber is chrome-plated and dimensioned for both civilian and military ammunition. The extractor and ejector are proven to work under any condition, and close tolerances on every part allow it to function in all environments.
The .416 caliber alternative further adds to the allure of the Barrett Model 82A1. With enhanced accuracy and stability, not to mention a significantly higher muzzle velocity, the .416 offers incredible long-range precision.
The muzzle brake, dual barrel springs and long mainspring design make the Barrett Model 82A1 comfortable and exciting to shoot.
The Barrett Model 82A1 fits into a regular sized carrying case. Although it’s transported as a disassembled upper and lower receiver, it can be ready to fire in under a minute by simply inserting two assembly pins through both receivers. The scope remains mounted on the upper receiver, maintaining scope zero. The rifle’s M1913 optics rail is tapered 27 MOA to take full advantage of the scope’s elevation travel. Emergency iron sights provided. Nerves of steel are not.
