Today, one of the most famous arms companies is Barrett Firearms Manufacturing. The products of this American company are actively used by power units, law enforcement agencies in several dozen countries. This weapon monster gained its wide popularity thanks to the creation and production of a self-loading rifle chambered for .50 BMG.

There are also more versatile rifles in the Barrett Firearms Manufacturing range.

    In 1982, Ronnie Barrett created a semi-automatic large bore rifle on his own.

      Barrett's main achievement is the Barrett REC7 assault rifle in 6,8mm caliber.
      Nice thing, actually. The old man AKM loses to him everything and everywhere.

        The old AKM was designed half a century earlier in general. Yes, and he had other tasks, namely, to quickly and cheaply equip the SA with a reliable automatic weapon, with which he coped with the AKM perfectly.

          Actually, the AKM is not a fully automatic weapon. It is very difficult to get out of it with automatic fire further than 100-150 m.
          Besides, cheap cheese is only found in a mousetrap. Therefore, "cheap" is a bad word for a quality item.

          Have you ever been surprised by the fact that it was designed only in two and far from the most leading countries in the world?

            Those. you only compare "To get out of it with automatic fire further than 100-150 m", the rest (by the way, this is "Therefore," cheap "is a bad word for a quality thing." refers to copies of AKM) does it matter? Ok, then compare KPVT and the pukalka that you advertise here. Let me remind you that for KPVT (as well as for a rhinoceros, good vision from an anecdote), it is not necessary for a squirrel to get into the eye (that it will tear it apart with the tree, that without it)

            Maybe I don’t know what, but AKM was designed in one country in the world called the USSR.
            Which at that time was one of the leading countries in the world. Even the current hegemon in the face of the United States reckoned with.
            And an automatic weapon is called not for the ability to accurately mow down the enemy with dagger machine-gun fire, but for the principle of reloading. And the AKM is a full-fledged automatic weapon.

              Was the USSR the leading country in the world?
              Do not make me laugh.
              The USSR has never been the leading country in the world. It has never even entered the top ten leading countries in the world. Second ten, yes, this is his place. And the Russian Federation is now not far from there, in 21st place.

              The United States never considered the USSR in anything. Because there was no one to reckon with. This bug was too small.

              And the AKM is a full-fledged automatic weapon.

              Of course, complete. Especially considering that it is very difficult to get from it into something further than 150 m.
              A full-fledged weapon provides targeted engagement and destruction of targets at approximately the same range. But AKM does not provide this.
              And here's another.
              In the "leading country in the world" they could not do:
              1. Army pistol.
              2. Self-loading army rifle.
              3. A sniper rifle based on it.
              4. Normal PP.
              Those. and could not do EVERYTHING.
              And what they really could do was tell each other stories about the supposedly magical properties of poor Kalash. About the authors of the first of which (AK-47) I will not tell you anything. And then you have enough kondraty.

                But the USA (after all, you decided to compare the USSR with it), were able to do:
                1. ABM Patriot. which can only protect itself and then only on holidays
                2.F-35, which until you kick, will not fly, but the 5th generation
                3. Zumwalt - which is more than 50 km from the base no-no, otherwise either the screw or the motor will fall off again.
                4. Aircraft carrier "Ford" - it's easier to say what works on it ...
                5. Abrams - which falls apart from a training shell.
                The "leading" country in the world is "simply abarzhats".

          Maybe your Barrett rifle is good, but then answer - which countries are armed with it, how many are produced, the effectiveness (how many people were killed from it) ???

    The United States never considered the USSR in anything. Because there was no one to reckon with. This bug was too small.

    So if you are not talking about a rifle, but about a country, so DarAgoy, Russia, and in the worst times, wanted to chhat, unlike you horses, for the exclusivity of the United States, with all its advanced technologies and sanctions.

          Learn.
          You have obvious failures in education.
          Nifiga you do not know.
          You don't even know that the USSR and the Russian Empire are two DIFFERENT states.
          At the same time, the USSR WAS NOT RI's successor. And the Russian Federation is NOT the legal successor of RI.
          From 1918 the countdown of history began AGAIN.

            Well, that the teachable "teacher" from the high road, Pompeo did not pick up the phone? I understand that he is afraid to talk to you, you record all negotiations and then sell them to competing parties in the next US elections. So, let's do it yourself, try further, as spaceships ply the Bolshoi Theater.

    Again this nonsense. People only read about weapons. If you were shooting with AKM, you would know two things: any AKM shoots better than you can. The accuracy of the AKM is on par with other automatic samples, at least for the user.

    You can be identified by your nickname: sergeant-major, - police rank, Pushkin, whom they looked after a little (spread rot). So the conclusions are similarly absurd - the fact that the Americans in Vietnam often took AK instead of the F-16 does not tell you anything ... AK weapons of the mid-20th century, today there are other requirements, but for the poor it is sufficient ... To compare weapons of different centuries can only .......

    there are specialists in long-range artillery systems, I watched a video about German corvettes on the stern of which a 107mm gun is installed and the firing range is declared as much as 100 km, which is hard to believe, is this possible?
