FactsEdit

  • Fact 1: Oversized training models were designed to better show the small internal mechanisms of guns and demonstrate proper care and usage to soldiers.
  • Fact 2: The Browning Automatic Rifle, or BAR, was the primary infantry machine gun for US forces in WWI and WWII.
  • Fact 3: During WWII, new materials such as plastics and ArmaSteel allowed BARs to be produced quickly and cheaply by non-weapons companies like IBM.
  • Fact 4: The BAR was constantly improved over its nearly fifty years of military service, and countless variants can be found.
  • Fact 5: The reliablity and low production cost of the BAR led to widespread adoption around the world, and some NATO nations continued to field the gun into the 1990s.
