Description

The Barrett Model 82A1 rifle gained worldwide popularity after pioneering the return of shoulder fired big-bore rifles for shooting enthusiasts.  As a result of its unique operating cycle, the M82A1 easily fires the largest commercially available cartridge in the world, the .50 caliber.  Yet, the Barrett M82A1 develops the lowest recoil force of any comparable rifle.

The M82A1 operates on the short-recoil principle developed by the famed American gun designer, John M. Browning.  Founder Ronnie Barrett adapted this operating principle to a shoulder fired rifle.  The recoiling barrel and bolt assembly acting against innovative spring and buffer assemblies replace the sharp recoil impact with a longer-acting lower recoil force.  To further reduce the recoil load, the M82A1 is fitted with a dual chamber muzzle brake.  The muzzle brake redirects high velocity gun gas to lower recoil by almost 70%.  The net effect is a rifle with the felt recoil of a 12-gauge shotgun.

With these time-proven methods and innovative designs, the Barrett M82A1 offers safety, rugged durability, and reliability to the big-bore enthusiast.
