The Barrett REC7 5.56×45 NATO gas piston semi-automatic AR-15 type lineup includes a carbine, flyweight and DMR (designed marksman rifle). All three are very similar. Let’s start by describing the carbine and describe the other two after that.
The Barrett REC7 carbine is built around a 16” barrel with grooves spiraling through its bore at a 1:7” twist ratio. Overall length is 17.3” longer and thus 33.3”. It weighs 7.2 pounds and comes standard with a 30-round magazine.
The Barrett REC7 rifle’s dependability stems largely from its innovative operating system. Using a minimum number of parts, the piston system separates heat and powder residue from the bolt carrier and trigger assembly. The rifle runs cool and clean, reducing maintenance requirements and increasing endurance.
The Barrett REC7 rifle’s forged 7075 aluminum upper and lower receivers are Type 3 Class 2 hardcoat anodized and Cerakote finished. The lower houses an ultra-dependable single-stage trigger. The upper supports a free-floated, hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrel with M4 feed ramps machined into the receiver and the barrel extension. A mil-spec A2 flash hider protects the muzzle.
The Barrett REC7 combines the familiar ergonomics of the AR style rifle with a revolutionary short stroke gas piston operating system to create a rifle that runs cleaner and more reliably than traditional designs.
