Barrett Firearms are known in the market for making some of the biggest and most powerful rifles in the world. Based in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, the Barrett M107 Sniper Rifle came into being after years of redesign and development on the original M82 rifle system. Several new features were added to its predecessor to make it impactful. The best way to know about this rifle is through a Barrett M107 review. So here’s a quick review on how useful this rifle can be.
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.This is an excellent system for large or hard target interdiction at range and also a blast for target shooting applications.
The Barrett M107 can be used with a suppressor and it allows you to combine signature reduction capabilities with the flawless reliability. The bolt carrier group has been designed to make the rifle suppressor-ready. Its titanium four-port muzzle brake is engineered to work seamlessly with a quick-attach Barrett .50 BMG Suppressor. In addition to this, the aluminium upper receiver is light in weight. It has an integrated, rigid 27 MOA optics rail. Inside the upper receiver, the bolt carrier rides on a hardened steel, anti-wear strip for added durability. A thermal-guard cheek piece protects the user’s face from extreme heat or cold.
Advanced design and manufacturing make the M107 more precise than ever. The rear-barrel stop and front-barrel bushing are bolted and bonded with a compound similar to that used on space shuttles. A titanium barrel key and fully chrome-lined bore and chamber add to the rifle’s durability.
Its lower receiver includes a new aluminium 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 lubrication. It 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.
