Tennessee-based Barrett announced they have changed REC 10 .308 carbines to include an offering in Tungsten Grey Cerakote.
Barrett is offering the third color option as a response to customer demand and is it now shipping to dealers. The company introduced the rifle to the consumer market last December. At the time the REC10, after 10 years in development, had received a military contract win and would be entering service under those terms.
The REC 10 is a high grade direct impingement SR-25-style semi-auto carbine. Weighing in at an impressively svelte 8lbs with a 16″ free floated barrel, M-LOK handguard, and fully ambidextrous controls. Barrel is 1:10 twist, chromed CMV steel, and button rifled ending in a 3 prong flash hider.
The REC10 is already available in black or FDE cerakote finishes in addition to the new Tungsten Grey. MSRP is in the $2,750 range and is the company’s first semi-auto .308 offering to the public. They’re building for a demanding customer base that they know well, their M107A1 and MRAD are serving with distinction.
But Barrett has always been one to offer their product to any discerning customer who demands their rifle run. The REC 10 is their continued answer to that demand for a new market segment.
