Barnes Precision Machine   has introduced a new rifle, the Basic Patrolman’s Rifle, with the MSRP of $750.

BPM has a solid reputation for building quality rifles, though at a price point that’s out of reach for some and with options some may not want to pay for. To address this, BPM has stripped off some features that do not impact reliability or accuracy to get that price point lower.

This rifle ships in a cardboard box, sans magazine, sights, rail panels, and Magpul furniture. Features include a 1:7 twist Chrome Moly barrel, nickel boron bolt carrier group, and commercial fire control group. This rifle comes ready for sights, or optics, and magazine of choice, and is a solid base you can personalize as you see fit and budget allows.

At this stage of the game, more and more people are buying quality base rifles and making changes they deem necessary for their personal use. BPM is now offering that base rifle of the same quality but with some changes to save on the MSRP. If you decide changes are in order, they can be done when and if needed. With the money saved on the rifle there is room to add what you like and leave off what you don’t need as you get around to it.

I spent much of my youth involved with firearms and felt the call early on to the United States Marine Corps, following in my father's and his brother's footsteps. Just after high school I enlisted and felt most at home on the rifle range, where I qualified expert with several firearms and spent some time as a rifle coach to my fellow Marines. After being honorably discharged I continued teaching firearm safety, rifle and pistol marksmanship, and began teaching metallic cartridge reloading. In the late 1990s I became a life member to the National Rifle Association and worked with the Friends of the NRA. Around that time my father and I became involved with IDPA and competed together up until he passed away. I began reviewing firearms for publications in the mid 2000s and have been fortunate to make many friends in the industry. Continuing to improve my firearms skills and knowledge is a never ending journey in which we should all be committed. I am also credited as weapons master on a few independent films.
