The Barrett Rifle PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Barrett Rifle free pdf The Barrett M82 is one of the most successful sniper rifles ever manufactured. Now entering its fourth decade of service, the short recoil, semi-automatic system is capable of firing a .50-cal BMG round that provides devastating accuracy over distances of more than 2km. Unconfirmed reports from Afghanistan in 2012 accredit the Barrett with one of history's longest ever kills at 2,815m. This is the technical history of a rifle initially commissioned as an anti-materiel and explosive ordnance disposal tool, designed to neutralize enemy vehicles and parked aircraft, but which has since been adopted by snipers across the world. The Barrett M82 has seen active service in the First Gulf War, Iraq and Afghanistan and has become an important addition to both police and Special Forces units alike.
