I will not pay the price they are asking for this weapon....But if that is what a "modern Day" BAR looks like, I like it. Anybody else?:munchin

Somebody says it will cost around $3600.

Hey I want one. IMHO they should have went to 308 instead of 30-06. I like the 06 as a round better, but the 308 is a standard round and they would have a better chance of selling them to govt agencies.

It was on display at the NRA convention here in Indy and I looked at it a little. No detailed analysis at all.

It strikes me as a lot like the Mk14 EBR. It is a .30 full auto capable squad designated marksman rifle.

I am big fan of more options but I'm not sure it offers more than other .30 rifles currently available.

I bet it costs more than $3600 as they currently make a reproduction of the original BAR which costs $4300: LINK (http://www.ohioordnanceworks.com/rifles/semi-auto/oow-line/1918a3-slr-walnut-stock.html)

It is the Ohio Ordnance version, we saw it at SHOT in Jan 2013.

Super light (for a BAR), I think it was down to around 13 pounds or so, without accessories.

It looks good, and it's a little more than I paid for my FN/FAL Para.
