Desirable U.S. Marked Barrett M82A1 Semi-Automatic .50 BMG Sniper Rifle with Unertl USMC Scope

Developed in the early 1980s, the M82 series of weapons has been adopted by a number of military forces, where its long range striking power makes it useful for disabling vehicles, detonating enemy ordnance and sniping at ranges well beyond a conventional rifle. This impressive weapon has the standard Barrett Manufacturing Inc. markings on the left side of the magazine well with the addition of "U.S." directly below the patent marking. Fitted with a matching numbered fluted barrel with Barrett four chamber chevron muzzle brake, ventilated steel chassis, folding hooded blade front sight, carry handle, scope base with scarce Unertl military issue scope marked "USMC 50CAL./5119", flip up rear peep sight, AR style fire controls and checkered grip, and solid rubber recoil pad. Comes with two extra magazines and a Pelican case (does not latch). This rifle is listed in Norman Chandler's "Death from Afar, Vol. 1" on page 23 as one of the first 100 Barrett M82A1 sniper rifles delivered to the U.S. Marine Corps during Operation Desert Shield. It has a barrel date of "3/91", which is the original SLAP (Saboted Light Armor Penetrator) chambered style. Reportedly, the Barrett's were sent straight from the factory to Saudi Arabia to be distributed to combat elements, though this one would have been a bit late for the main thrust. The scope rail is a mid-90s military adjustment, noted with a two-piece welded base and a one piece top picatinny rail. Only about 35 were reported to make it to civilian hands, the rest were given to foreign allies, police departments, museums or the shredder.

Class: Modern Long Gun

Very good with 80% original green phosphate finish remaining, areas of edge wear and scratches on the barrel, green copper residue around the muzzle, scattered dings and scuffs, and handling marks overall. Mechanically excellent. Scope is excellent with some minor edge wear on the tube and clear optics.
