Barrett Firearms Manufacturing Inc. is renowned for its expertise in long-range firearms, and they've recently announced the much-anticipated return of the REC7 DI rifle. This coveted weapon, which first made waves in 2016, is slated for a re-release in the summer of 2024.

After a pause in production to prioritize the MK 22 contract, the REC7 DI is making a comeback. The rifle retains its original design, a tribute to Eugene Stoner's revolutionary direct impingement system, ensuring that it remains a classic choice for firearm enthusiasts.

Designed for the purist, the REC7 DI is a modular, lightweight rifle based on the AR platform. It features an extended gas system that guarantees seamless performance, with or without a suppressor, offering adaptability and reliability across a range of shooting activities.

Craftsmanship is at the heart of the REC7 DI, with its upper and lower receivers made from premium 7075-T6 aluminium. These components are treated with Type 3 Class 2 hardcoat anodizing and Cerakote, providing both durability and a sleek appearance. The rifle is engineered with precision, focusing on comfort and control at every point of contact.
