The Barrett XM500 is a replacement and successor for the Barrett M82A1. Its detachable magazine can hold 10 rounds, and it has a design similar to the M82A1 but the change is that it is lighter, has the magazine at the back of the gun and has a longer range and more accuracy than the Barrett M82A1. It was made by Barrett Firearms Manufacturing and is still under prototype testing.
