Barrett® Model 98BTM Fieldcraft .338 Lapua Magnum Bolt Action Rifle
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. This rifle was developed to be a completely unique, purpose-built platform for precise long-range shooting. This revolutionary precision rifle offers sub MOA precision that others can only dream about. The Fieldcraft variant features a light barrel, helping to trim some of the excess weight while still delivering long-ranging performance.
The 98B's straight-line design allows for faster, more accurate follow-up shots that can tame the beast when hunting large game. This design, running from the highly efficient muzzle brake to the shooter's shoulder, helps mitigate recoil. 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.
