Barrett® Model 98B® Bolt Action .338 Lapua Magnum Rifle
Highly mobile with hard-hitting punch... ideal for close quarters environments.
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. This rifle was developed to be a completely unique, purpose-built platform for precise long-range shooting.
This 20" barrel CQB configuration was designed to meet the needs of today's modern battlefield, which often requires quick reaction and maneuverability in tight, urban environments. It offers all the heavyweight punch of the full-size 98B, in a more compact design.
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 aluminum 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.
