Barrett M98 Bravo
From the highly efficient muzzle brake to the user-adjustable butt plate, the Barrett Model 98B is visibly revolutionizing the world of long-range precision rifles. Barrett engineers threw out the book when they sat down to develop a purpose-built platform for precision long range shooting. Even the casual observer can see that the Barrett M98 Bravo has not descended from a bolt action deer rifle.
Drawing on Barretts experience designing long range rifles, the Barrett M98 Bravo’s modular layout allows the end user to adapt the rifle to fit their exact needs. The straight-line design of the Barrett M98 Bravo runs from the muzzle to the shooters shoulder tames felt recoil, making the Barrett M98 Bravo a pleasure to shoot. It also allows for faster, more accurate follow-up shots fed from the polymer 10-round detachable magazine.
The Barretts M98 Bravo ergonomic pistol grip positions the shooters hand in a natural position, reducing muscle fatigue and promoting the utmost control over the fully adjustable trigger. The familiar thumb-operated safety is accessible without compromising the firing grip, allowing the shooter to maintain a solid cheek-weld on the adjustable cheek piece while manipulating the oversized bolt handle, feeding a fresh round into the chamber as the bolt silently glides through a polymer guide.
optics and accessories are easily mounted to the Barrett M98 Bravo aluminum upper receiver, which boasts an 18 inch 1913 rail as standard equipment. All that real estate allows for substantial optics to be mounted in conjunction with a night sight or laser designator. For the rare application requiring additional mounting space, the optional receiver extension is available to extend the rail an additional 6 inches. The Barrett M98 Bravo’s forward receiver is drilled and tapped for additional accessory rails to be mounted at the 3, 6, and 9 oclock positions.
The Barrett M98 Bravo’s fluted, match-grade barrel is easily accessed for cleaning from the chamber by breaking the rifle open much the same way as an M4 Carbine. Barrel cooling is aided by a series of vents machined into the upper receiver.
Equipped with a rear monopod and forward bipod, shooters find the Barrett M98 Bravo a pleasure to shoot. Mild felt recoil, a design conforming to the shooter, and easily manipulated controls help eliminate fatigue and promote accurate shots. Shooters who are intrigued by innovative design coupled with long range performance will appreciate the Model 98B. For extreme hunting, long-range target shooting, military or police applications, the Barrett M98 Bravo is ready for service right out of the box which happens to be where Barrett engineers developed the design.
