Barrett is the world leader in large-caliber rifle design and manufacturing, headquartered in Murfreesboro, TN. Barrett rifles are used by civilian sport shooters, law enforcement agencies, the United States military and more than 73 countries worldwide. In 1982 Ronnie Barrett invented the first should-fired 50 caliber rifle, and in less than a decade the M82A1 is used by the US military in Desert Storm. Within 20 years, the US Army adopts the rifle and names it the M107. Today Barrett makes a full line of rifles including magazine and bolt-action 50 caliber models, plus advanced design AR platform offerings, and even a lightweight Fieldcraft hunting line.
