Manufacturer part number: 0-88935-263-1
From it's inception, the Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) was one of the most popular and respected weapons in the U.S. arsenal. For over four decades, when the going got tough, the BAR was truly a 'Rock in a Hard Place'. This long awaited book is the most complete study of the BAR ever published. 19 chapter detail every aspect, including U.S. military models in both world wars, and in Korea. A full chapter tells the story of commercial models produced during the 30s for law enforcement and foreign governments. Also discussed are ex-military models that fell into the hands of outlaws such as Bonnie & Clyde. A chapter titled 'How the BAR works' includes parts, troubleshooting, accessories etc. A beautifully done book, deserving a place in the library of any military collector. 469pp.
