Browning Rifle BAR Mark II Safari #31001x
- Rifle - Semi
The ultimate sporting autoloader. Originally designed by Browning family member Bruce Browning, this is the rifle that set the standard for hunting semi-autos. Featuring fine Walnut, a precision machined ordinance steel receiver and a hammer forged barrel, this magnificent BAR will make autoloading enthusiasts out of the most skeptical riflemen.
Classic in looks and contemporary in performance.
The BAR MK II Safari is the hunting rifle that sets the bar for every other autoloader on the planet with accuracy and speed - and a caliber selection - that is not matched by any other hunting semi-auto.
The Browning BAR sporting version is certainly a distinct and separate rifle from the military BAR M1918, but its design is the result of Browning's unmatched understanding and expertise with automatic rifles that started with John M. Browning. His grandson, Bruce Browning, was the driving force behind today's BAR. A large team of automatic firearms experts at the FN factory in Belgium also played a key role in its development. This group of FN automatic rifle designers, lead by Marcel Olinger, began serious work on the project code named "Carbine 66," with full-scale development and testing done throughout 1966 in preparation for an official 1967 product launch. Both the history and the efficiency of this amazing rifle is unequalled among autoloading rifles.

I haven’t fired it yet, but I can say that this rifle is very well put together. No iron sights so I have yet to have a scope mounted. I’m looking forward to shooting/hunting with it in the future. Flaherty’s shipping was like light speed.
Received this product in .308 Win. calibre. Tested it with factory ammo. At 100 yards it was a pure tack driver. Functions flawlessly in both feeding and extraction. Fit and finish is excellent.. My only regret is not having bought one years earlier.
One of the best Semi made for hunting
