The Barrett Model 99 "Big Shot" is a single-shot sniper rifle first introduced in 1999 by the Barrett Firearms Company (USA).[1] The company is better known worldwide for its earlier .50 caliber rifles, the semi-automatic M82A1 and bolt-action M95.[1] Like the M95, the rifle uses a bullpup configuration meaning the ammunition is loaded behind the pistol grip. However, it is not fed from a magazine. It is instead a single-shot rifle, meaning that one round is loaded directly into the ejection port and is pushed into the chamber by the bolt.

Variants

The rifle comes in several variations. The .416 Barrett is, in theory, more accurate than the .50 BMG because the round is of a higher velocity and lower caliber (making it more aerodynamic). However, the drag-to-weight ratios of the respective bullets give the .50 BMG an advantage at ultra-long ranges. The .416 Barrett model is available with a 32" barrel. The .50 BMG model is available in 25", 29" and 32". MSRP ranges from $3,800 to $4000.[2]

I saw one of these at Gander Mountain, but I think they wanted over 5,000 for it. They also had the semi-auto Barrett for about 10,000.
