Barrett Firearms’ Multi-Role Adaptive Design (MRAD) bolt-action sniper rifle has been selected by SOCOM, as well as the Marine Corps and the Army, as the next sniper rifle. SOCOM has recently awarded Barrett with a $49.9 million contract for the adoption of the MRAD and conversion kits for the Advanced Sniper Rifle program.
