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; one round is loaded directly into the ejection port and is pushed into the chamber by the bolt.

Variants Edit

The rifle comes in several variations. 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]
