Was there any internal changes made to the Rec 7?

How much does the 16” rifle weigh?

How much does the 9.25” rifle weigh?

The picture seems to show a different type muzzle device, can we get any details on it?

If there is a new muzzle device has any testing or work being done with a sound suppressor?

When will the Rec 7 Gen II be available for the public?

Next request; could someone walk out on the production floor and take a few pictures of the Rec 7 Gen II PDW paying special attention to the handguard? Not looking for glam shots of the rifle.

I also have some questions on it.

With the new rail system and the QD gas block, are we looking at a quick barrel change just as the MRAD? If so what calibers are being looked at
What are the Iron Sights they come with?
What type of Triggers are these new gens shipping with?
Is there going to be a price change on the Rec7?

And this is just my Request, Id love a 12" 6.8 upper, i was thinking about buying the 16" and cutting it down to 12, but i was not sure if that would cause cycling issues since the bullet would leave the barrel much closer to the gas block.

I can help out with this one. I had the pleasure of checking this rifle out at SHOT. The hand guards are f ing awesome! The guys in the booth were cool enough to let me take these.

Just seen the new 2014 Price list

MSRP for the rec7 is now 2,759.

with the benefits of

+ Barrett Enhanced Rail featuring KeyMod
+ PWS Triad muzzle brake
+ PRI adjustable flip up sights

Worth that 700 dollar price jump, debatable . My complaint so far is it ships with only 1 short rail attachment? Id like to see at least an additional longer rail attachment for a grip.

The REC7 Gen II is available to the public and we are currently taking and fulfilling orders from FFL dealers.

The 16" rifle weighs 7.2 LBS.
The 9.25" rifle weighs 5.95 LBS.

Here is the muzzle break: http://primaryweapons.com/store/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=251&idcategory=6

The barrel is threaded 1/2-28 TPI. You can thread on any brake/suppressor device you would like.

There is no quick change barrel system. Rifles are available in 6.8 SPC or 5.56 NATO.

They come standard with PRI iron sights

The ships with a Geissele SSA trigger

There is a new price point. Retail is $2,759

The magwell is mil-spec so it has remained unchanged.

As of now we are not planning on offering a 12" model. You would be pioneering new ground if you chopped a 16" barrel and we are unsure if it would affect cycling.

Thank you.

We do plan to eventually sell the uppers and Barrett hand guards individually on our webstore. BUT... for right now all of them are dedicated to full rifle systems so we can fulfill orders. It will likely be a few months before we will have enough excess built up to sell individual components.

I know i asked this before, but it still baffles me, in your 6.8 barrels how come you thread it to 1/2x28 when most 6.8 muzzle accessories are threaded for 5/8x24 ?

Also my 2 cents on the price of the rec7, 2700 does seem pretty steep compared to most other brands. Lwrc runs about 2500 and less most times. i got my older rec7 new july last year for about 1900, so an 800 dollar increase for the sights, muzzle break, and rail? and regarding that "QD" gas block, what was the purpose in designing this feature? is it easy to line up the gas block back into proper position not covering the port on the barrel for gas once its been removed?

I still plan on buying a complete rifle in grey from you guys hopeful i can find one a bit lower in price.

The retention nut for the gas block allows the handguard to effectively surround the gas block. With the old drill and pin method of attachment of the gas block (set screws would never hold up to the piston moving back and forth), the handguard would have had to made allowance for the pins to be installed or removed.

With the nut, that requirement goes away completely. In fact, all accessories can be left in place on the handguard - and the gas block, handguard and then the barrel can be removed - if so desired.

Interesting. What keeps the gas block nut tight against the block?

Good catch Azuredeviljin and my apologies - the 6.8 barrels are actually threaded 5/8-24. Only the 5.56 is 1/2-28 TPI.

Simply torque via the threads.

We have done extensive testing and seen NO evidence of the nut coming loose during firing. A wrench must be used to loosen it, and proper torque applied to reinstall.

Do you use the 7.62 version of this for the 6.8? or is it a true 6.8 ?

Also if you know off hand or can ask whoever works on the barrels for the rec7, is the gas port on the barrel the same size between the PDW, and the normal 16".
This will pretty much tell me if it will run fine or not when i cut the barrel

Picked up a Gen 2 Rec 7 today, I must say, it is really nice. Fit and finish rivals anything on the market.

I guess primarily the gas block. I don't know if anything else has been changed or not.

I took some pics of the gas block with my phone. My photobucket appears to be broken. I would be willing to text pics to anybody that IM's me a phone number.

You can always check gunbroker, there are a few on that, you can also go to any Barrett dealer near you and put an order in.
