The Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) model 1918 is one of the most iconic firearms in history. Developed by the legendary John M. Browning, the rifle was designed to meet a military requirement in WWI and instantly from inception exceeded all expectations.. The rifle then was then shipped overseas where it became an instant hit by grounds troops as a very easy-to-use, fast, and hard hitting platform. The BAR's overwhelming effectiveness and unmistaken look easily spread fear on all enemy fronts.
Now you can own a piece of history. Literally. The Ohio Ordnance Works 1918A3, World War II, semi-auto version is a one-of-a-kind production and is manufactured with some original WW I and WW II parts. The receiver is constructed of high quality 8629 steel casting and has been carburized and induction heat treated for long life and hard use as you would expect from a BAR. The castings are built from modern state-of-the-art CNC machining and every rifle is fully assembled, test-fired, and re-inspected under direct supervision from the Ohio Ordnance Works master armorer. The entire process, from start-to-finish, is manufactured in Chardon, Ohio deep in the heart of American craftmanship.
