    I would love to have one of those. If I can ever afford one it would be MP40 first and then a BAR. Dont know alot about the BAR but surprised that Browning was not one of the manufacturers!!!! Das Reich please post some pics pf your BAR when you can, I would like to see it!!

    I met a guy online who lived in Phoenix . I believe it was on the old G/K-43 site. Anyway he came down here with a BAR and told me that if I brought the ammo, he let me shoot it. I picked up my >50 cal. can full of '06 and flew down. What a trip !!!! He had the WW2 version in slow and fast full auto. I was standing up ,firing it and the whole range stopped. They all came over just to watch. I must have fired 8 or more clips. It was like a STAR was on display . Everyone wanted to look , and if it was my gun, I would have let some shoot it but it wasn't so........Some jerks said ," What a waste of ammo . and ,That's OK if you have money to throw away". The point was, I was having a hell of a good time and at my age who knows how much longer it will go on.95% enjoyed the show.

    You are right Dave. The cost of a tube BAR is about $22K on up. I am thinking however. BB
