That's been in the works for a while - glad to see it finally coming around. Still, I think this is a bad combination, like a .408 Cheytac semi-auto. Semi-autos cannot compete with bolt-action rifles when it comes to accuracy and when your cartridge is specifically designed for Extreme Long Range (ELR) shooting, it just doesn't make sense to make a semi. Accurate ELR shooting requires a bit of work between shots to reformulate a firing solution as the environmental conditions will often change quickly. On top of that, it's not wise to have a round sitting in a hot chamber while you do those calculations. Now a semi-auto .50BMG is a whole other story. It makes sense as a defensive weapon for static anti-vehicular threats and it has payload capacity (Mk211) for HTI engagements at distance.

So I think a .416 semi ss really just a big CA legal boomstick ;)

As cool as it would be to have a semi, I probably would get a bolt action with a detachable mag, like a bullpup style. Right now barett has that single load 416, nice if they made one with a mag.

+1 This is more a big middle finger to the AW laws in this state. Granted a 8800 dollar middle finger. But a big ol' EFF you none the less. If I won the lotto or one of my rich relatives dies and leaves me with a ton of money, I would get this...and a chey-tac too. What can I say the only why they would be more awesome is if shot lightning bolts and ninja stars at the same time.

I can't find any info about this on the Barrett website. Did Schryver Gun Sales modified the gun themselves and sell them to the public?

Why in 416 instead of 510dtc?

Nope, Barrett stated over a year ago that they intended to offer the M82/107 in .416 Barrett.

As for why not .510DTC? I can only say the words ".416 Barrett" ;)

Yeah, they (or "HE") want(s) to make a nice profit off that boutique cartridge that will probably never go too far. (I could be wrong....but I don't think so....)

Semi auto with a pistol grip and mag? this rifle is not CA legal without a BB, right?

Barrett's use an AR15 pistol grip so you could either run a MMG / Solar setup or do the BB button.

M24armorer mentioned that he can rechamber an M82 barrell in .510DTC. DO that and run a BB or a MMG, and you should be good to go.

How much $ are we looking at if we go with this route? Also how do we go about getting the rifle into CA? Do we ask the dealer to have the rifle shipped to M24armorer directly or to your FFL with the upper and lower separated?

He mentioned around $250 or so to re-chamber the barrel. I dunno if M24 has an AW/BMG permit in order to receive the complete BMG rifle. If not, options could include having the seller ship the barrel/bolt assembly to M24 and the rest of the gun to your FFL. Or, it may be possible to have it shipped to your FFL separated.

Do realize that John is extremely backlogged so it may take many months to get the work done and shipped back to you.

how would you go about installing a BB on the M82? By looking at their pic, all I see is a paddle mag release

That's a good price!
A used barrett and a CQ barrel for DTC would be pretty cool.:cool:

There were fixed mag barretts made for CA. And there is a pic of a MMG on a barrett on here some where also.

Yea it looks pretty tight right there. I would have to look at one up close to see how it could be made.

Barrett briefly made a hinged mag version, but I don't see that coming back at all.

I think if they offered these in 50DTC I think they would sell a ton of them here. The 416 is NICE but holy cow that's going to be expensive to shoot, whats a case of barrett 416 ammo going for these day like 80 rounds for $450?

titus7
12-08-2009, 3:29 PM
Wow I wonder how he could do it for $250? When I was in persuit of getting this done Anzio Ironworks quoted me $3000 to rebarrel/rechamber the 82CQ in .510 DTC. Sure M24 knows what all is involved in doing this?

ke6guj
12-08-2009, 3:37 PM
Was Anzio gonna replace the barrel?

M24 said that he could just take a tenth of an inch off the chamber end and then rechamber it to .510DTC. I'd assume he knew what he was talking about, but since I've never tore down an M82, I dunno if there are any issue with stuff not lining up if the barrel was .1" shorter.

depending on the width of the trigger guard/paddle one of my trigger guard mounted locks would work.

Barrett doesn't want to sell the M82 in 50 DTC because they're afraid that CAL DOJ will add 50 DTC to the banned list.

When they compare the .416 to the 50 BMG they compare it to regular surplus ammo. When you compare apples to apples then the playing field changes.

The .416 uses turned solids, gee how hard is it to understand that match ammo will out preform surplus? When the 50 is loaded with match ammo the playing field is leveled and probably in the 50's advantage. I don't know what the 1000 yard record for .416 Barrett is but the 50 is sub 3"!

You can believe the hype or you can believe the legend, how many .416's have been used to take out ragheads at 2,430 meters? I willing to bet none.:rolleyes:

Haha a guy at turners was shouting on the phone to someone saying these are illegal in every way shape and form! Also said that he'd have a talk with mr barrett at SHOT to make them legal to own. Wow just thought I'd share for the laughs.

50 Shooter
12-15-2009, 9:15 AM
Well, I had to add to this as I heard that the new 1000 yard record for the 50 is sub 2"!!! Maybe if CSACONNONEER reads this he can confirm it from the FCSA.

Like I said, compare apples to apples boys.;)

Yes, there is a new record. It was shot by a top competitor using his own ammo.

So just to be sure and this may sound like an extra stupid question but a semi-auto barrett m82 chambered in 416 would need a fixed a magazine or bullet button installed to be legal in CA ?

Why would they chamber an extreme long range round in a semi auto? Unless you have a CNC lathe in your basement making comparable reloads to the factory ammo will be pretty difficult.

brando
12-22-2009, 12:18 AM
It's not hard to make comparable ammo - the brass, bullets, dies, etc are available. It's just not a good choice for a semi-auto, that's all.

Because it's really really cool, and people with big wallets like to buy really really cool stuff.

I guess if I was to spend that kind of money I would build a rifle that can extract all the potential out of that round but that's just me.

Yeah, in other words a single shot bolt gun ;)

Bhobbs
12-22-2009, 8:46 PM
Yeah pretty much. Plus I have a habit of burning through a magazine pretty quick so this would help slow my consumption down. I went to the range with my family a while back and my grandfather forgot the magazine to his M1 Carbine. So to shoot it we had to single feed. The good thing was the .30 carbine lasted all day.
