While Barrett Firearms Manufacturing is best known for their .50 BMG anti-materiel rifles they also produce a series of AR-based designs, the REC7, offering both piston and direct gas impingement systems. While the REC7 is chambered in 5.56×45 or 6.8 SPC, Barrett has unveiled the new REC10 which chambers larger rounds including 7.62x51mm, .260 Remington, and 6.5 Creedmoor.
According to Tactical Life, the new REC10 will be available in 16-inch and 20-inch barrel lengths with the 20 inch REC10 LR having a stainless steel match barrel, a PRSIII stock, and Geissele SSA trigger. While the carbine length gun will have a 1:8 twist chrome-lined lighter profile barrel and use an ALG Defense QMS trigger.
Both versions of the REC10 have mid-length gas systems and come with Magpul furniture, a Radian Raptor ambidextrous charging handle and a BRS M-Lok handguard. The rifle will be available in a number of finishes including Black, Flat Dark Earth, or Tungsten Grey. The REC10 carbine has an overall length of 33.6 inches and weighs 8.25 pounds.
The new rifle’s MSRP is reported to be $2,750. The REC10 will likely be launched at 2018 SHOT Show in January.
