History of Barrett
It all started more than 30 years ago when Ronnie Barrett built something no one thought was possible:a shoulder-fired .50 caliber rifle known as the Model 82A1. Barrett began with drawing sketches at his dining room, which he then took to a local tool and die maker to create parts that didn’t yet exist. It’s clear that every millimeter of this rifle was a direct result of Ronnie’s passion, and it didn’t go unnoticed. In 1989, the Swedish Army ordered 100 Model 82A1 rifle systems.
The battlefield completely changed in the 90s when the US Armed Forces purchased the Model 82A1 for use in operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. A few years later, it would be adopted by the US Army as the M107. By 1995, Barrett was introducing the Model 95, which has since been adopted by governments worldwide. Next came the Model 99, the company’s first pistol, which was actually designed by Ronnie Barrett’s son Chris.
Since its inception, Barrett has been rightfully recognized for its contribution to the firearms industry. The M107 was identified by the US Army in 2005 as one of the “Top Ten Greatest Inventions” for soldiers. Ronnie himself was awarded “The Colonel George Chinn Award” for excellence in research, development, engineering, manufacturing, and management in production of small arms weaponry systems. What’s more, the Barrett Quality Management System (QMS) received the prestigious ISO 9001:2015 certification.
Barrett is headquartered in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and is regarded as the world leader in large-caliber rifle design/manufacturing. Their products are used by civilian sport shooters, law enforcement agencies, the US military, and more than 70 State Department-approved countries across the world. It’s safe to say that Barrett lives and breathes firearm manufacturing. They refuse to rest on their laurels, constantly striving to think outside of the box and explore new ways to improve. Whether it be a firearm, scope, or ammunition innovation, Barrett lives by the motto: “There’s always a better way.”
