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 M98B has not
descended from a bolt action deer rifle.
Drawing on Barrett’s experience designing long range rifles, the
Model 98B’s modular layout allows the end user to adapt the rifle to
fit their exact needs. The straight-line design running from the muzzle
to the shooter’s shoulder tames felt recoil, making the Model 98B a
pleasure to shoot. It also allows for faster, more accurate follow-up
shots fed from the polymer 10-round detachable magazine.
ergonomic pistol grip positions the shooter’s 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.
Environmental testing on the M98B is done to MIL SPEC 810-F. Rifles are
taken down to -30° F for 24 hours and up to 150° F for 24 hours before
being tested for function. Sand tests are also performed by simulating
a sand/dust storm conditions and again performing a function test.
