Barrett Firearms’ once popular REC7 DI rifle is set to hit the market in summer 2024 after a production pause due to the MK 22 contract.

The MK 22 contract was a nearly $50 million, five-year contract Barrett received from the U.S. Army in 2021 to supply their MK 22 Multi-Role Adaptive Design (MRAD) rifle to the branch to be used as the Army’s new sniper rifle. To ramp up for the large, high-profile contract, Barrett had to dedicated much of its production capacity to the MK 22 and put a pause on civilian production of the REC7 DI.

The REC7 DI, originally introduced in 2016, was popular among AR fans for its reliability and precision. It features a mid-length gas system for reliability with or without a suppressor. The rifle’s upper and lower receivers are machined from 7075-T6 aluminum, and all aluminum parts have Type 3 hardcoat anodizing.

The REC7 DI comes with a cold hammer-forged chrome-lined barrel, Magpul furniture, an ALG QMS trigger and an extended slimline Barrett handguard with M-LOK accessory mounting slots.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer the REC7 DI once again to our customers,” said Bryan James, president of Barrett. “This rifle embodies the legacy of quality and reliability that the Barrett name represents. We are confident that shooters will once again appreciate the exceptional performance and craftsmanship of the REC7 DI.”

The rifle will be available in 5.56 x 45 NATO. Each REC7 DI is hand-built, inspected and tested to ensure it meets Barrett’s performance standards.
