Anyone seen the new Barrett REC 7 6.8 SPC Piston Powered Rifle? I went to their website but no info there. Sounds like an XCR Clone, which is good. When people start copying you you know you are on the right track.

Ronnie Barrett and Alex know each other pretty well. I have good intel that tells me that a certian army unit is currently testing 6.8 uppers from 3 different manufacturers to decide which one they want to start using. I told Alex about this and after contacting them found out they want an upper than can go on a M4 lower.

Gunner, I got all this info after we were talking about who might be shooting 6.8 in the army. Estimates put the total number of 6.8 rifles in the army below 500 total. You wont be finding once fired brass for a while.

I was afraid of that, on the brass question. Our government doesn't care much for soldier needs, it's all tied to cost. Buy a damned $300.00 hammer...... but no damn rifle (OR Upper) in 6.8 SPC that will do the trick. :banghead: :dontknow:

My question now is what mags are they using for 6.8? I wonder if HK sent some mags to go with the 6.8 uppers that they are testing right now.

Does H&K make the 30 round 6.8 magazines for Barrett?

The Barrett magazines are not easy to get and pricey, but they work.

I ordered a REC7 but canceled it as some of you know. :duh: The guy I ordered it from can get the Barrett mags. His website is a little lacking but the guy is legit and super easy to deal with. His prices are great on the rifles. Not sure about the mags. Just go to www.barrettrec7.com and it'll redirect you to his main site.

The DOD doesn't buy $300 hammers. They buy a $5 hammer and put the other $295 into their black budgets. You know for tea parties and child care.........and airbourne lasers that cost millions of dollars and never actually work. But what the heck make the dumb taxpayer feel scared and they'll let us keep doing it. Fuck the soldiers, when they die we'll jsut sing up some more.

Sorry, there I go again.
