The Inside Story of the BAR, John M. Browning's Automatic Rifle
“The BAR’s days as a front line automatic rifle are over,” concludes Canfield a bit wistfully. “However, few U.S. military small arms have garnered a better reputation or are looked upon with more respect than John Browning’s automatic rifle. From its baptism of fire in the trenches of France in 1918 to the steaming jungles of Guadalcanal or the frozen Chosin Reservoir, the BAR has served this nation with distinction.”
While original military BARs are few and far between these days, the modern sporting BAR from Browning is readily available at your local Browning dealer. A product of the inventive genius of Bruce Browning, John M.’s grandson and the 4th generation of Browning gun designers, today’s sporting BAR is magnum cartridge capable, highly accurate, soft recoiling and relentlessly reliable. Just like the one Bruce’s grandpa designed about 100 years ago.
