SOCOM GEAR News: 1 Hour National Geographic Feature on BARRETT Monday, Including SOCOM GEAR Licensed M82A1

National Geographic Television announced this week that Barrett and its founder, Ronnie Barrett, along with son and daughter, Chris and Angela Barrett, will be showcased in a one-hour documentary on Monday, June 27th at 8:00 p.m. Central Time.

“SNIPERS, INC.” covers Ronnie Barrett’s invention of the famous .50-caliber rifle back in 1982 and how the business evolved into its current state-of-the-art world headquarters.

Two new Barrett rifles, not yet released to the public, are included in the documentary: M107A1, which is a modification of Ronnie Barrett’s original M82A1 (adopted by the United States Army in 2002) and the MRAD, a rifle designed by Chris Barrett.

The M82A1 is available for Airsoft, fully licensed by SOCOM Gear.
