NRA Gun of the Week: Barrett Fieldcraft Rifle

Barrett entered the bolt-action hunting rifle business last year, and its initial offering, the Fieldcraft, is an ultra-light rifle developed using Remington’s Model 700 as a starting point. This .308 Win.-chambered Fieldcraft rifle weighs in at a scant 5 lbs. 1 oz., and features a hand-laid carbon-fiber stock. The 18” slim-contour, stainless-steel, button-rifled barrel is threaded at its muzzle 5/8x28 TPI to facilitate the use of a sound suppressor or muzzlebrake. The rifle feeds from a staggered, four-round blind box magazine and fires via an adjustable Timney trigger. For more on the Fieldcraft from Barrett, watch this week’s NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by American Rifleman’s Christopher Olsen, and visit barrett.net for other great firearms and accessories.
