The History

M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle® Patent Print

"Automatic Machine-Rifle"

J.M. Browning, Feb. 4, 1919.

The M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) is a legendary firearm that has played an important role in American military history. The weapon was designed by John M. Browning, a renowned American firearms designer, in the early 1900s.

The BAR was first introduced to the United States Army in 1918, towards the end of World War I. Its original purpose was to provide American soldiers with a lightweight and reliable automatic weapon that could keep up with the fast-paced nature of modern warfare.

The BAR was widely used during World War I, and it continued to be used by the US military throughout World War II and the Korean War. In addition to being used by the US military, the BAR was also used by a number of other countries, including the United Kingdom, France, and Belgium.

The M1918 BAR was chambered for the .30-06 Springfield cartridge and had a selective-fire mechanism, which allowed the shooter to switch between semi-automatic and fully automatic modes of fire. It had a maximum effective range of about 600 yards and could fire up to 550 rounds per minute.

During World War II, the M1918 BAR was primarily used by US infantry units as a light support weapon. It was often used in conjunction with the M1 Garand rifle, which was the standard rifle of the US Army at the time.

The BAR continued to be used by the US military until the early 1970s, when it was replaced by the M60 machine gun. Today, the M1918 BAR is considered a classic firearm and is highly sought after by collectors and firearms enthusiasts.
