I am intrigued by their interpretation of the famed BAR. The casted frame bothers me a bit as well as the price but other than that seems well built and a joy to shot. I can swing the cost (or let's pretend I could) and I also have a couple of k of surplus 30-06. Pros, cons, opinions, experiences welcomed.

Isn't that company in cahoots with the pro-gun control industry group?

Nice rifle.

Not remotely close to wartime, but a nice rifle.

I have fired a few and they were good shooters.

Problem is, it doesn't do anything my M1A or FAL doesn't already do cheaper and with far less weight.

What's the point of it?

If it were full auto it would serve a purpose for me, but unless you plan on making it a bump fire weapon or something, I just don't get it.

How much are they?

I've shot a semiauto in .308(they made a few hundred of them) and a post sample full auto .30-06. Both were fun but you'll never want to shoot one in semi again if you get behind a full auto.

I have one in .30 caliber and I love it. It has a big appetite for ammunition and needs definite maintenance every so often, but it is a true crowd pleaser and makes me appreciate the men who wielded it in combat. That said, I've never fired a 'real' BAR, so I'm not tainted by the awesomeness of the real thing.

All the weight and ridiculousness of the original, but with none of the full auto fun.

Just say no to closed bolt bastardizations of firearms originally designed to fire from an open bolt.

I mean, I understand the sentiment but I have no options in regards to full auto sir, I am priced out of an auto BAR.

Correct.

Which really sucks because Ive been to their shop. Vet owned and operated. I didnt meet the owner but the guys doing the day to day work were a solid group of dudes. Nice as can be, super passionate, but thier owner is an asshat.

OP, if you can overlook the political BS, the guys making that gun are one of us, and stand behind it 100%. If all you care about is the gun, go for it. They run a tight ship at OOW. But if you cant Im sad to say look elsewhere.(if theres even an elsewhere)

OOW needs to invent a bump-fire stock for it.

I had one of the first when the receiver and build with your parts kit from SARCO was $2500. Too expensive to feed, I got rid of all my .308 except a FAL.
