The Barrett XM500 is a gas-operated, semi-automatic sniper rifle/anti-materiel rifle. It is fed by a 10-round detachable box magazine. It is intended to be a lighter, more compact alternative to the M82/M107. Since the XM500 has a stationary barrel (instead of the recoiling-barrel design of the M82), it will likely have somewhat better accuracy. As with its predecessor, it comes with a removable, adjustable bipod mounted under the barrel, and a top-mounted Picatinny rail for attachment of a scope and/or other accessory.
