One of my brothers wants a BAR in .270 and I know NOTHING about these rifles.

Is there such an animal as Field Grade II in BAR's ??? (Bro says he wants a BAR Field Grade II is why I'm asking.) I know there are Field Grades in shotguns but can't find anything mentioning Field Grade II in BAR's. I see there's one with a plastic stock, one with a wood stock (looks like the same rifle) and one with fancy engraving called Safari.

BTW, I do follow my posts and any help is appreciated.

Thanks !!

BTW,
I'm asking about the BAR HUNTING rifle. Not that other BAR.

Browning's website seems to indicate their are Safari models with steel receivers and lightweights with aluminum receivers (aluminum with 308 that can't possibly work, lol ) Looks like the lightweight wood is the one I would go with.

NO WAY WILL I BUY ANYTHING WITH AN ALUMINUM RECEIVER !! (You could put your eye out with those things.)

The lightweight wood is, so far, my choice too.

Well shit, I hit your Browning link and the dealer locator and there'a not a LW BAR, wood in .270 in Oklahoma City.
Guess I'll trudge over to GunsAmerica and look later tonight.
