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. The new .308 Win.-chambered Fieldcraft 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. Learn more about it in the video embedded above, hosted by American Rifleman's Christopher Olsen.
