You see, Barrett, the maker of firearms best known for the M-107A anti-material sniper rifle, has live customer support. OK. That part isn’t quite surprising. Perhaps, the military’s armorers would need to call it to find what’s up with some functionality or fault. No big deal, but there was a peculiar case where a Marine called in regarding a M-107A.50 BMG rifle had a fault that needs urgent attention because, he was in the middle of a firefight in Afghanistan.
