Barrett Firearms 


Who we are

More than forty years ago, Ronnie Barrett built something no one thought possible – a shoulder-fired .50 caliber rifle so innovative, the Army itself would sing its praises. From sketching his designs at the dining room table to working with a local tool and die maker to create parts that didn’t yet exist, every millimeter of the Model 82 was a direct result of Ronnie’s passion for the ultimate firearm.

That obsession still fuels our company today.

Headquartered in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Barrett is the world leader in large-caliber rifle design and manufacturing. In 2023, the company became part of the NIOA Group – a family-owned global munitions company based in Australia.

Our products are used by civilian sport shooters, law enforcement agencies, the United States military and more than 75 State Department approved countries across the world. The Barrett Quality Management System (QMS) has received the prestigious ISO 9001:2015 certification for the design and manufacture of firearms, ammunition, and accessories, and to provide training for those systems.

This is now my 3rd purchase here. I’ve been very satisfied each time. My items have always shipped quickly.
