The Barrett M95 is a sniper rifle available for Ghost Recon teams.


Real-world developmentEdit

The M95 (also known as the Model 95M) is a .50 BMG (12.7 x 99 mm) rifle manufactured by the Barrett Firearms Company. It is an improved version of the earlier Barrett M90.

In the year 1999, the M95 won the U.S Army competition for XM107 .50 caliber sniper rifle, and was subsequently bought by US Army in small number for further research and testing. The Barrett website also announces that M95 rifle is used for military and law enforcement applications in at least 15 other countries.

Differences from M82Edit

The main differences between it and the Barrett M82 are its bolt-action operation and bull-pup configuration, which allows for a shorter overall length while preserving the entire length of the barrel. Therefore, there is no reduction in the bullet's ballistic performance. It features a pistol grip and the trigger unit moved forward 1 inch (25mm) for better clearance between the magazine and the pistol grip, and thus more comfortable handling and shooting. The bolt handle is slightly redesigned and bent down and to the rear. The barrel chamber is chrome plated for better extraction and corrosion resistance. There are also some minor improvements in the trigger / firing pin mechanism. The M95 also has a large muzzle brake to reduce recoil while firing one of the powerful .50 caliber rounds. This weapon fires .50 BMG ammunition from a five-round, bull-pup magazine. Like the Barrett M82, it is used as an anti-materiel rifle and a long-range sniper rifle.
