Everything about Barrett's new semiautomatic .50 caliber rifle is big. The rifle is fitted with the QDL suppressor (Quick Detach Large suppressor) and a stocky bipod. The price tag is big too. The gun retails $18,000.

Purely military uses. Obviously for very unique situations. So bulky it would be useless in most tactical situations. Anyway, here it is on a hunting and fishing forum.

I'm not sure I see the utility in an automatic long distance fifty cal sniper gun. No one is going to be rapid firing that thing. Making it auto makes it more prone to failure than say a bolt action. But I guess an auto wouldn't look nearly as mean. Or perhaps there is some recoil benefits to auto? Any help in that area would undoubtedly be beneficial!

It probably is heavy but I doubt it is heavier than an elk quarter (approx. 130 lbs) as claimed.

What's the hunting application here? Nothing against military weapons on a hunting site...some make very good hunting tools...but probably not this one.

Actually this is a gun nut blog on a hunting/fishing/cooking/conservation/shooting site. I like it. It is an incredible piece of machinery and I wonder if the military will make much use of it. It will be interesting to see how reliable it is when it is full of sand.
