Barrett M90; All you need to know about US made bolt-action rifles Welcome to the #Barrett #M90 #Boltaction #Rifle 50Mind S BlogHere is the latest breaking news and trending broadcast for you today: :
The Barrett M90 is a bolt-action, bullpup rifle chambered in .50 BMG (12.7×99mm NATO). It was designed and manufactured by the Barrett Firearms Company.
Unfortunately, you may be interested to note that in 1995, Barrett stopped production of the M90 and replaced it with the M95.
Additionally, the sniper rifle, the M90, was designed and manufactured from 1990 to 1995 as a bolt-action alternative to the semi-automatic Barrett M82. It was a bolt-action rifle of bullpup design.
The weapon had a fluted barrel with an integrated muzzle brake, a 2 part receiver (upper and lower), a folding bipod and a 5-round detachable box magazine. The M90 did not have iron sights, but instead had a Picatinny rail for extending the scope.
Also, the bullpup design made the gun more civilian-friendly in its use. Barrett Firearms initially produced the Barrett M90 to appeal to customers looking for a bolt-action .50 caliber.
Unlike the larger semi-automatic Barrett M82A1, the Barrett M90 is compact, has a fluted muzzle to reduce recoil, and a special Picatinny rail for mounting a variety of scopes.
The gun was originally intended for civilian long-range division shooters and incorporated into competition-style shooting. The Barrett M90 is much lighter compared to the Barrett M82A1. This is due to its smaller, more compact design
