The Barrett M95 (also commonly referred to as the Model 95M) is a .50 BMG (12.7 x 99 mm) sniper and special operations rifle produced manufactured by the Barrett Firearms Company. The rifle is an improved version of the popuular, earlier Barrett M90.

Difference Between M95 and M82

The main differences between the M95 and the Barrett M82 are its bullpup configuration and bolt-action operation, both allow for a shorter overall length while preserving the full and entire length of the barrel. Therefore, there is absolutely no reduction in the bullet's ballistic performance when fired from the rifle.

Design

The weapon features a pistol grip and the trigger unit moved forward 1 inch (25 mm) for much smoother and better clearance between the pistol grip and the magazine, and thus more comfortable shooting and handling. The bolt handle is slightly redesigned and somewhat bent down and to the rear of the rifle. The barrel chamber is chrome plated for corrosion resistance and better extraction. There are also some very small improvements in the trigger / firing pin mechanism of the rifle.

The M95 also has a much larger muzzle brake to significantly reduce recoil while firing one of the extremely powerful .50 caliber rounds. This sniper rifle fires .50 BMG ammunition from a five-round, bullpup detachable box magazine. Like the Barrett M82, it is often used as an anti-materiel rifle and a precisely accurate long-range sniper rifle.

Video Games

The M95 appears in the extremely popular PC first person shooter entitled Battlefield 2 as an unlockable weapon.

In love

I liked this gun design when it first showed up as a concept in the first Robocop movie. When Barrett actual made it and gave it to our troops I wanted to enlist just to fire it. Learned two things then; 1) can't get it until after Basic, AIT, and Sniper School. 2) Not used on people, only APCs, bunkers, things of that nature with targets in them or hiding behind them.
