Anyone else seen this yet?  He says he's only put one round through it, now he's selling at around 90% the original cost .  Who pays $2650 for a semi BAR, shoots it once, than sells it? Theres got to be something more going on here.

Toting that boat-anchor from the car to the firing line probably wore him out. Their great guns and very accurate, but tend to be on the heavy side.


PS- my uncle was the one who referred to the BAR as a boat-anchor, as he still to this day never understood why they'd (101st Airborne) give a 5'7" 155 pound guy (him in WWII) a BAR, then turn around and assign a 6'3" 210 pound guy just to tote his BAR ammo armed only w/ a 1911.

$2650 for a semi is a bargain when transferable FA BAR's are now topping $20K.

If it ain't full auto, it ain't really a Browning AUTOMATIC Rifle.  Why bother?

I for one will buy a semi-automatic BAR because
I want a "firing"representation of the BAR.
$2700 is pricy but I need it to help complete
my collection.I also will get a semi-auto m60,
1919A4 Browning semi-auto(30-06) AND a .50M2 semi-auto.These are all high end firearms that
Will complement ANY gun collection.

I couldn't sleep in it either which is what I'd have to do if I brought it home and mama saw the price tag.

I agree with you.These weapons will be the
LAST purchases to complete a collection after
EVERYTHING else is in my safe.My wife is cool
but before I get a high $$$$gun,I'll probably
take her on a cruise or exotic vacation spot
to ease the shock when she sees the price tag.
I WON'T hide it from her.She likes to shoot and
thinks my gun collecting is cool AND fun to do.
She knows that she is welcome ANYTIME to grab
any gun I have and exclaim "Let's go shootin!"
I LOVE my wife!
