NGEF raffling a Barrett MRAD

Written By: Bob - Dec• 01•12

I’m not a gun contest kind of guy, but I’ll make an exception for the Guard:

The National Guard Educational Foundation is raffling a special commemorative Barrett MRAD (Multi-Role Adaptive Design) rifle to raise funds to tell the National Guard story.

The bolt-action, extended-range sniper rifle, valued at $6,000, is Shooting Illustrated magazine’s 2012 Rifle of the Year. It features a user-changeable barrel system, an easily accessed trigger module and a foldable stock.

Barrett, of Murfreesboro, Tenn., produced one MRAD with special insignia to commemorate the Guard’s 375th anniversary and donated it to the NGEF to help with fundraising. The foundation operates the National Guard Memorial Museum and other public education programs.
