SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET ..... 8O

Is about the only word I can think of at the moment that describes exactly how this little jewel shoots and handles. This particular model has one of them two cyclic rate switches (other than safe) and even in the rock-n-roll mode did'nt hadly even budge during fire ..... :wink:

One Fine Weapon Indeed! :D

Looks Like FUN!

Aloha SixTGunr:

Sure must have been FUN! Best stress reliever in my book! My father in WWII was issued a BAR after his M1 Garand blew up from sniper fire (I think he said in Italy (or maybe France), but this was over 20+ years ago). I am researching where his unit was stationed and fought in WWII.

I think this is where I developed the fondness for battle rifles! I do remember him saying something like "the recoil was very light and almost as if you had to pull the BAR towards to you to maintain fire...".

HAVE FUN! And shoot 'em up for us who can't be there!

bar parts kits are available from sarco or florida gun works for approximately 500 dollars. receivers are available from philly ordnance 80% finished for about 450 dollars. another 200 dollars for completed maching and you have a semiauto bar, not the real thing but close enough and legal. look into it. i did and its one kick ass rifle.

no, you have to find a good gunsmith or do it yourself

One other thing to consider .....

Been there ... Done that ...

Ya might want to watch these 80% finished advertisements .....

Don't get the idea that the other 20% can be done with a simple dremel tool and a drill press .....

I was fortunate enuff to get my hands on miltary blueprints and had an experienced tool and die maker finish it out with laser cutting and all that fancy stuff they use. Ya just might find that beveled edges are required as well as all other holes ... rivets ... pins and whatever are generally laid out from a single point location.

Just my experience with 80% stuff ......

Sometimes things sound a lot easier than they actually are ... :roll:

if you will notice in my statement, i paid 200.00 dollars for the 20% machine work. some idiot witha drill and a dremel would surely ruin the receiver. it is a must that you get in with a good machinist with the correct blueprints which are available all over the web. if you are patient and willing to do it right, the end result is awesome,mine is just an absolute dream to shoot and it is legal. not to mention the attention it draws at the local range.

BAR!!!!!!!!!!

Next to a M-14 and M1903A1 USMC Sniper model with 8x Unertyl Scope, the BAR has got to be my favorite. My Dad was a BAR Man in Baker Company 1/2 during WWII. In case you younger types think I blew the Company designator, The Companies used to be Able, Baker, Dog, Easy instead of Alpha, Bravo, Delta and Echo. I read where a guy makes semi-auto only BAR's that don't require a class-3. Only catch is that they start at about $2500.00. If anybody is interested, I still have the article and can post the Companies info.
