Barrett Trims Fat with New REC7 Gen II Flyweight


Barrett is shedding the weight from its popular REC7 rifle with the brand new REC7 Gen II Flyweight, introduced at the 2015 SHOT Show.

The piston-driven Flyweight rifle has been stripped down to the essentials for an overall weight that is less than six pounds.

It features a new user-removable gas block that can be taken off for cleaning or to reconfigure the rifle. All that is required for removal is a 13/16th wrench.


The REC7 Flyweight also incorporates the new Barret-designed handguard that comes standard on all REC7 Gen II rifles. It comes with a muzzle thread protector instead of a flash hider or muzzle brake.

The Flyweight is available in either 5.56 NATO or 6.8 SPC, and MSRP is not yet available.
