Rugged, lightweight, and built to take on the abuse of any big game hunt, Browning's Lightweight Stalker features a weather resistant synthetic stock and forearm and a gas operated action that reduces recoil. The lightweight aircraft aluminum alloy receiver balances well in your hands and is a pleasure to carry in the field. Open sights and factory installed sling swivel studs are standard on all models.
The Browning BAR is one of those key products which have defined the Browning mystique throughout the last century. Much of the fame of today's sporting BAR began through the fame of the original military BAR designed by John M. Browning near the end of World War I. This rifle, called the BAR M1918, was commissioned by the U.S. Army in an effort to break the stalemate of trench warfare in the battlefields of France and Belgium. It took John M. Browning three months to design it. Browning took this project so seriously that his son Val personally did testing and training of the American troops. In its short time at the front the sound of a BAR became legendary. At 330 rounds per minute every shot was distinguishable and the sound became uniquely associated with the BAR, a sound that struck fear into the hearts of the enemy.
Today's BARs come in the new ShortTrac and LongTrac variations. Built with lightweight aluminum receivers and modern styling, they offer all the advantages of the originals. Both the Lightweight and the Safari - based on the Mark II configuration - are still in the line as well.
If you demand fast follow up shots from your deer rifle then look no further than time tested, reliable Browning BAR.
