The Fieldcraft version brings a few updated enhancements to Barrett's Model 98B, including a lighter chassis and Keymod rail attachment points. Chambered for 7mm Rem. Mag., the 98B Fieldcraft offers sub-MOA performance from a 24-inch stainless steel barrel. The rifle weights in at just over 9 pounds, and feeds from a 10-round detachable magazine.

The Barrett 98B Fieldcraft will be available in mid-summer 2014 for an estimated price of $3,995.

The Barrett 98B Fieldcraft incorporates a 20 MOA Picatinny rail for optics and feeds from a detachable 10-round box magazine.
