Moab Ventures acquired exclusive rights to sell Bear River and Black Ops USA branded Airguns in August of 2018.  Barra Air Guns mission is to create items meant to be enjoyed with friends.

 “We believe shooting air guns is an activity that can build confidence and develop friendships through healthy competition. It’s a social activity that can teach discipline for life.” said Matthew Isabell, President of Moab Ventures.  “In a day of turmoil and confusion in the air gun industry, Barra is delighted to introduce their new 1866 Air Rifle.  Its traditional and reliable design equips you with a familiar gun that you can enjoy for years to come.   Our 1866 air rifle is the epitome of the past and signals our optimism in the future.   We invite you to get one in your hands and experience the accuracy for yourself!” 

Operating the Barra 1866 is straightforward.  Cocking the rifle is done by pulling back the bolt and loading a BB or pellet into the chamber.  The rifle can then be pumped a variable amount of times for the type of shot needed: up to 10 times for maximum velocity.  The bolt can then be closed and after firing this process is repeated.
