Can it be said that it's barrel is mil-spec? I ask this because in another thread it was stated that the only mil-spec .50 barrel was that of the M2 (since up until the M107 was adopted it was the only .50 in our inventory) but now the M107 (M82A1) joins it in it's military adoption.

I'm not, I was just curious if a weapons adoption by a military was necessary for it to have mil spec parts or if like say a bolt-action .50 like the ones the US Navy uses (McMillan Tac .50) but haven't adopted (i.e. given a weapon ID number) is also considered mil spec.
