Carved from years of hard-earned insight, the Barrett Model 98B is entirely in a league of its own. Even the casual observer can see that the Model 98B is not a descendant of the bolt action sporting rifle. In fact, it's not a descendant of anything.
Available in .338 Lapua Magnum, .300 Win Mag, .308 Win, .260 Rem, 6.5 Creedmoor and 7mm Rem Mag, this rifle was developed to be a completely unique, purpose-built platform for precise long-range shooting. Its straight-line design, running from the highly efficient muzzle brake to the shooter's shoulder, tames recoil. It also allows for faster, more accurate follow-up shots fed from the 10-round detachable magazine. The ergonomic pistol grip reduces muscle fatigue and provides total control over the fully adjustable trigger. An intuitive, thumb-operated safety can be accessed without compromising the firing grip and allows the shooter to maintain a solid weld to the adjustable cheek piece.
The oversized bolt handle can be easily manipulated, feeding a new round into the chamber as the bolt glides through a polymer guide. The Model 98B rifle's aluminium upper receiver boasts an M1913 optics rail, offering plenty of space to mount substantial optics as well as a night vision device or other accessories. The forward receiver is drilled and tapped for accessory rails to be mounted at the 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions. From its shooter-adaptable design to its unprecedented performance, the 98B is ingenuity in action.
