Barrett Firearms of Murfreesboro, Tennessee is known for making some of the biggest, baddest .50BMG systems on the market, so it’s no surprise that it’s new M107A1 rifle came to fruition after years of redesign and development on the original M82 rifle system. The M107A1 features a number of new enhancements over its predecessor and compliments several of the new Barrett rifles, such as the MRAD system (.338 Lapua) rather well.
Knesek Guns has been offering Barrett rifles for many years now and have seen variants come through for service and upgrades in many different forms. The M107A1 takes into account the shortcomings of the 82a1 system and does a fine job of outfitting the rifle as a total package.
The Barrett system fires the same standard ammunition as the M82 and M107 rifles including the standard M33 Ball, the M20 APIT, M17 Tracer and XM1022 long range match cartridge. The new cylindrical titanium muzzle brake and titanium barrel key/recoil buffer system allows the rifle to be safely suppressed with a special Barrett suppressor. Overall, internals have been upgraded to with stand higher pressures and increase overall reliability and performance of the rifle.
The maximum effective range of the M107 is 1,829m with improved accuracy. The rifle has incorporated polymer components in secure areas to increase mobility and has reduced the system in weight by 4lbs. The included monopod is fully adjustable for height and the forward mounted bipod feet are from a more rigid pattern than the original M82 platform. Accuracy is designated at ~3MOA with the system producing a muzzle velocity of 2,7800ft/s.
We feel that the M107A1 is an excellent system for large/hard target interdiction at range and also a blast for target shooting applications. Definitely worth the investment!
From the Barrett catalog:
It may be related to the Model 82A1®/M107®, but the M107A1 is far from a simple evolution. Driven by the demands of combat, every component was re-engineered to be lighter yet stronger. The result? A high-performance rifle that weighs four pounds less than the original M107, but is every bit as tough.
Designed to be used with a suppressor, this one-of-a-kind rifle allows you to combine signature reduction capabilities with the flawless reliability of the original Barrett® M107. An all-new bolt carrier group has been designed that is key to making the rifle suppressor-ready. its titanium four-port muzzle brake is engineered to work seamlessly with a quick-attach Barrett .50 BMG Suppressor.
The M107A1 rifle’s lower receiver includes a new aluminum recoil buffer system that’s optimized for use with a suppressor. The bolt carrier’s components are protected with a mix of ultra-hard PVD coatings and advanced nickel Teflon® plating that increases lubricity, is corrosion-resistant and greatly eases cleaning.
Numbered witness holes on the magazine are just another example of how even the smallest detail makes a powerful difference.
