Headquartered in Tennessee, Barrett is an American firearm manufacturer born of innovation fueled by a passion for the ultimate firearm. In the early 1980s, Ronnie Barrett dove into uncharted territory with a vision for a shoulder-fired .50 caliber rifle. This vision came to fruition with the Model 82, created by parts that — before the inception of the M82 — only existed in Barrett’s brilliant mind.
Today, Barrett remains a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of premium-quality, large-caliber rifles. Sport shooters, law enforcement agencies, the US military, and over 70 State Department-approved countries across the globe employ the use of Barrett rifles. More than just another gun manufacturer, the Barrett company is comprised of outside-the-box thinkers who live and breathe firearms. From development to assembly and everything in between, Barret believes “There’s always a better way.”
