This Ain’t Your Granddaddy’s BAR


Designed by John Moses Browning, the M1918 Browning automatic rifle came late in World War I, but didn’t see widespread deployment until World War II and the Korean War. It served until the early years of the Vietnam War, where it was superseded by the M60 GPMG.

Ohio Ordnance Works has made a name for itself reproducing a high-quality semi-automatic 1918A3 variant that is a near-ringer for the old war veteran designed by Browning.

This, however, isn’t your granddaddy’s BAR.

Robert Landies III (above) is a Marine Sgt. and the Special Projects Manager at Ohio Ordnance Works who decided that the BAR needed a 21st Century upgrade, and the result is something that looks like a heavily-modded AK from a distance, but which is a beast all it’s own… and I do mean it is a beast.
