Barrett is clearly a household name in the rifle world, most notably for the famous 82A1 50 BMG. However, their rifle line has expanded over time to include Modern Sporting Rifles (MSR’s), and first class hunting rifles. Enter the Lipsey’s Exclusive Barrett Fieldcraft chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor.
It’s always a challenge to come up with a way to enhance or reconfigure a high-quality firearm. Whether that be through scope adjustments, accessories, or modifications to the anatomy of the gun. Luckily, Barrett was willing to let us take a shot so we came up with a nice variation on a proven platform. Each barrel is hand-laid into the carbon fiber stock while sporting a Timney trigger, spiral fluted bolt and blind magazine. Given such high end attributes, we decided to have some fun with not only lengthening the barrel but also increasing the barrel contour. Those in possession of such a firearm may want to test out a barrel-mounted bullet chronograph to determine bullet muzzle velocity, if those are the sorts of statistics you want to gather as a firearms enthusiast.
Adding the Lipsey’s twist and similar to Barrett’s long action rifles, we went with a 24″ #2 contoured barrel as opposed to the standard 21″ zero contour. This gives the rifle a slight bump in velocity and exceptional balance without compromising weight. At only 5.6 lbs, the felt recoil of the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge pairs up proportionately to make it a smooth shooter.
Keep a few bucks in your pocket and avoid the potentially long wait for a full custom setup. If you’re after a super lightweight sharp shooting 6.5 Creedmoor with all of the attributes of a custom rifle, look no further than the Lipsey’s Exclusive Barrett Fieldcraft.
