I have definatly seen them cheaper if you look around. But still fine gun. My best friend recently picked up a early 90s model with VariX II scope for 550.

Belgium Brownings are worth more than Japan Brownings. The BAR is a decent weapon as long as you don't expect bolt action accuracy. I would guess that somewhere around 2 inches at 100 yards would be resonable.

The BAR's we've had shot quite accurate, better than 2" at 100 for sure! The problem is, you have to keep them verry clean or they jam all the time... At least that's the way it was with the4 or5 we've had...

I have to agree with DM, havn't seen one yet, I couldn't get to shoot better than 1.5MOA. Usually 1MOA or abouts. Shoot, my 7400 270 shoots 1.5MOA with handloads.

I agree with DM as well.The accuracy isn't bad,but my own bar mark II jammed twice in cold wet weather despite proper cleaning and lubrication.

You cant't get any gun to shoot well can you? And your shooting what a Remington 7400 give me a break . In reality a BAR and I have owned 4 of the SOB's don't give up anything to most if not all bolt guns unless your talking heavy barreled varmint rifles. The Belgium made models were among the finest accuracy wise although there are no problems that I have had with the 2 Jap models I have owned. The only negative I give them is they weigh more then your average bolt rifle and are clumsier handling otherwise a very fine rifle.

Elkhunter,

You read bigcountrys origional answer different than i did. How i'm reading his answer, he agreed with me.... saying the BAR's "are" accurate... He said: "I have to agree with DM, havn't seen one yet, I couldn't get to shoot better than 1.5MOA"

Anyway, i still like the Rem. auto's better if used for a shooter....
