PROOF Research announced recently that Barrett Firearms has begun offering their carbon fiber-wrapped barrel on Barrett’s MRAD platform. Barrett is a world leader in large-caliber rifle design and manufacturing. Their products are used by civilian sport shooters, law enforcement agencies, the United States military and more than 73 State Department approved countries across the world.
With a philosophy of “You’re only as good as your last accomplishment” Barrett continues to exceed customer expectations by employing PROOF Research’s state-of-the-art carbon fiber barrel on their MRAD platform, significantly reducing weight while increasing durability and accuracy.
The MRAD is a bolt-action system that continues to define a whole new class of long-range precision rifles. The MRAD rifle’s unique user-changeable barrel system is just one example of the rifle’s modularity. Available in .338 Lapua Magnum, .300 Winchester Magnum, .308 Winchester, .260 Remington and 6.5 Creedmoor, the precision-grade barrel can be removed by simply loosening two bolts using a standard Torx wrench. Besides reducing maintenance and logistical burdens, this unique design allows for user level caliber interchangeability and serviceability.
John Clements, VP of Global Business Development at PROOF Research and formerly the Weapons Program Manager at Naval Special Warfare Development Group (NSWDG) stated, “We’re very excited to see our barrel employed on Barrett’s respected MRAD platform. Barrett is truly an industry pioneer in large caliber bolt-action weapons for U.S. military, Special Forces and consumer market customers. It’s gratifying to see our technology continue to penetrate these elite markets.”
