There are very few pictures of the Barrett MRAD and even fewer of them in Norwegian hands. This Photo Of The Day intends to improve this obvious shortage. The Barrett MRAD was ordered by the Norwegian Armed Forces in 2013 and is in use with Norwegian Special Operations Forces since 2015. They use the caliber .338 Lapua Magnum, but they also have the .50 BMG in their Barrett M82s. The riflescope is a Schmidt & Bender, most likely the 5-25×56 PMII model.

Here we can see Norwegian Army soldiers, assigned to the 1st Cavalry Squadron, Armored Battalion, as they conduct live fire training with their MRAD .338 sniper rifles in Setermoen shooting field (in Norway).
