Barrett Model 98B .338 Lapua Magnum Rifle System: 20" Barrel, Bipod, Monopod, 2 Mags 98002-SY
There are no predecessors to the Barrett Model 98B. Even the casual observer can see that
the Barrett Model 98B is not a descendant of the bolt-action deer rifle. In
fact, it’s not a descendant of anything. This first-born brainchild
was developed to be a completely unique, purpose-built platform
for precision long-range shooting. Every inch of the never-before
seen Barrett Model 98B is carved from years of hard-earned insight.
Thanks to its modular layout, this rifle can be adapted to fit
each user’s exact needs. Its straight-line design, running from
the muzzle 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. This allows the shooter to maintain
a solid weld to the adjustable cheek piece. The oversized bolt
handle can then be easily manipulated, feeding a fresh round into
the chamber as the bolt silently glides through a polymer guide.
As for optics and accessories, the Barrett Model 98B rifle’s aluminum
upper receiver boasts an 18-inch M1913 optics rail, offering plenty
of space to mount substantial optics as well as a night sight or
laser designator. The forward receiver is drilled and tapped for
accessory rails to be mounted at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions.
This revolutionary long-range weapon isn’t all work. Equipped
with a rear monopod and forward bipod, it’s also a pleasure
to shoot. From its highly efficient muzzle brake to its shooter
adaptable design and never-before seen performance, the Barrett Model 98B is ingenuity in action.
