Barrett Shows New Sniper Rifle at the AUSA Show

Barrett Firearms released a new sniper rifle chambered in .338 Lapua at the Association of the United States Army show in Washington, DC this past week.

The Multi-Role Adaptive Design (MRAD) sniper rifle is a bolt-action rifle with a 10-round magazine. The stock which can be folded has an adjustable cheek piece along with a one-button variable length of pull. The barrel is modular and can be swapped out for cleaning or a caliber change.  It is intended as a medium range sniper rifle to fill the gap between the 7.62x51 round and the .50 BMG round.
