The Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) model 1918 was developed by John M. Browning in 1917. Approximately 350,000 were produced through the end of World War II. Ohio Ordnance Works, Inc. produces a semi-automatic reproduction (M1918A3, based on WWII version) of this venerable design so that you can own a piece of history. The only one of it’s kind in production anywhere in the world, it is manufactured with some of the original USGI WWI and WWII parts.
For the last 21 years we have taken great care in the building of each rifle. Only the highest quality Ohio Ordnance new manufacture and USGI standard parts are used in its production. Our receivers are machined from AISI 4140 steel billet on our state of the art CNC machining centers. Every rifle is fully assembled, inspected, test fired, and re-inspected under the direct supervision of our master armorer.
The entire manufacturing process is accomplished at our facility in Chardon, Ohio. Our team is made up of experts in the military ordnance field, with a combined 100 plus years experience.
