Sorry if my topic search missed this but......
Barrett shows (sells?) a 28rd 6.8 mag but all people are yacking about is PRI. Does Barrett make their own mags and are they not available? My next project after the ultimate ar-10 buildup is going to be a 6.8spc but I have heard PRI had problems with their first mags (and 25rds vs. 28rds) Any info on Barrett mags???????

I have not heard of Barret mags. More Vaporware anyway, the PRI is available today.

I believe PRI's supplying them for Barrett in a slightly different configuration than those for the Military. I believe the Military spec'd a "tangible" indicator on the floorplate that allows ID by feel in order to differentiate the mags from 556 mags in no/low light. I could be wrong this is old info. call Barrett or PRI to be sure though...

Okay useless topic. But FYI!!! I emailed Barrett and they said:

We will be offering 30 round magazines in about 2-3 months. Our entire
inventory of the magazines are going with the rifles and upper conversion
units at this time. We will put them on our website when they are available
for purchase.

Thank you,

The "tangible" indicator is a floorplate that is slightly wider than the magazine body, much like the baseplace lips on Orlite mags.

The mags are now available for $48 from Barrett.

Saw one tonight. Looked to be very high quality. Kind of on the heavy side, but not by much.

If they are really PRI made mags, as reported, they come in 10, 15, and 25 round capacities. FWIW, LMT is making the rifles for Barret.
