They are pretty few and far between. IMO an original finish rifle will be closer to $25,000+. Got my semiauto version from OOW on Friday. Way cheaper and a beautiful rifle. It's something to consider.

Too bad though cause i think its a shame not to get to enjoy to full auto from the BAR

But I guess I wouldnt really need it and what i would save by getting the semi- thats more ammo

How well does the OOW shoot and is the quality good? Do they have a site?

Quality is outstanding. I have not been able to get to the range this weekend but reports I've read have these shooting match quality ammo into three shot groups of .75" @ 100yd. Three shot groups aren't really groups, 5 is more realistic but these rifles are very capable shooters, look as good as can be and compared to the cost of a real one it's a no brainer. Sat with mine tonight and watched Saving Private Ryan

I had the privilege of shooting a full-auto BAR today (as well as a Thompson full-auto!). I shot two mags from the BAR and a half a 50 round drum with the Thompson!!

I wish the photograher was able to work my camera better (he only shot 3 seconds of me!!! ), but oh well. Here is a SHORT clip of a real full-auto BAR in action:

Here I am holding it:

Hopefully one day I will be able to shoot it again, and this time I'll have someone else shoot the video.

STOP its making me want it more

But another neat clip of a full auto BAR is on Medal of Honor Frontline.
Its in the Gallery section under the "Making of" the "Storm in the Port" level. Its at the end of the movie clip and he empties the mag..pretty cool

But with the OOW BAR is there any special paper work or is it just the norm as if buying any other rifle over the net?(IE.. send copy of dealers FFL, etc..)

Our dealer, who is also a Class 3, owns 2 BARS. One is a 1918A2, the other a Belgian FN-D, sort of a "product improved" BAR, with quick-change barrel. Both weapons are a BLAST to shoot. With either set on slow-fire, you can literally shoot through a 3"x18" slot, similiar to a vision port in the old bunkers. This from a hasty position prone. As in drop, aim, fire, in 5 seconds or less. They are quite accurate, capable of serious damage with a .30-06, and can reach out literally hundreds of yards. Weight is only a few pounds more than the latest 15-16 pound, tricked out, M4 carbines.

Azski...The way you are resting the BAR on your leg, you've discovered these suickers are downright heavy. My complements to you on the short film clip of your firing a BAR off-hand. No easy feat, unless you are in condition and used to holding twenty pounds of steel steady and on target. Fun though.

The asking price for the Group Industries BAR is high - depending on what goes with it. The gun alone should be more in the $12k range.
I have one and yes, it is a BLAST in every sense of the word. The semi's look good, but they are just not capabile of the full auto power of the BAR on slow or fast rate!

That was an idea i had thought of a couple days ago when i read about the TAC-trigger but do they make one to fit the ol BAR?

If they do then we might have found a loop hole

Looking at the advert video, it would seem that it can fit most weapons that have a trigger-guard. But there might be some complication iwht the front of the guard on a BAR due to the mag.

Sorry for the thread jack but I just bought a BAR but have no idea how to take this thing apart. I need an online manual or link to a site that specialises in BARS if anyone knows of any.

I love these guns and allways wanted one, but its in really rough shape and I need to get it cleaned etc etc.

I have 3 BAR fa guns, Swede, Argentine and Chilean, all form 4 guns. I bought them over the past years as the prices kept going up, I dont have a US BAR. When I find one I will buy it. Must be C&R and preferrably not mfg by a regular gun mfgr(Win-Colt, etc) I want a WW 2 U S gun and the Mexican one called a Mendoza. When I find one I will pay the price asked or agreed on, I find it hard to believe that a person who would buy a car or boat or ? for $35,000 to $50,000. that will be worth $3500 in ten years would quibble over the price of a gun that can only go up in value. Look at the past history-----I bought Swede in 1986, $2500., got the Chilean later $1900., and the Argentine I really had to scratch for at $3500. What would the value of each of these be on todays market????????? What will the change hands price be of the 1986 Chev truck I have???????? Change hands price of the 1974 boat I have???????? If you had to come up with $50,000. or face a 10 year jail sentence, I suspect you would make the $50,000 somehow. It is a matter of priorities, what else canyou buy, play with for a couple years and make a handsome return on your original investment???????
