    Does anyone have hands on with this rifle yet? Impressions?

    I’m sure they are nice. Looking for a comparison to other .308 gas guns in the same price point?

    My little brother picked up a REC7 not long ago and I fell in love with it. I want the 308 version after seeing how relatively low they were priced. I spent some time with a 98b last year and it was awesome. Been a fan of Barrett ever since. Im curious how they stack up to some others.

    I strongly considered one and went with an LMT instead for a similar price point.

    All the adds for the Rec10 state that it is used by ďa militaryĒ, but I cannot find which one/how many/etc. This wreaks of shady marketing and played a significant factor in not buying. Outside of that, the rifle is an otherwise plain offering in a field of outstanding rifles. Particularly, itís main competition is LMT, LaRue, and Daniel Defense. All three of these have excellent offerings with more track record (with MWS having real contracts) and innovation than the Rec10 (which is still mostly proprietary).

    So there really wasnít anything wrong with the REC10, and the example I looked at seemed fine. The competition at the same price point is simply better. Had the REC10 come out in 2004 it may have been a huge success. Now? Not so much. For about the same price I pieced together a really nice LMT MWS, and I have no regrets.

    I also looked into what military adopted it and came up with nothing. I originally thought it was ours.

    Barrett Rec 10

    I got to handle one at the NRA show briefly and also one a few weeks ago at a gun shop that is actually near Barrett firearms. The fit and finish and balance were excellent. They are saying they are coming out with a precision model soon. Iím waiting for that to happen. wanting a large frame AR and looking at the Barrett and the new Daniel Defense

    I emailed Barrett a few days ago and he did say they plan on a precision model but did not have a timetable on release

    Iím looking forward to checking that out. It will be near the end of the year anyway before Iím ready. But I must say that DD 6.5 with a 20 inch barrel, install a magpul PRS stock. That is tempting
