Utilizing the same gas-action principle his grandfather invented, Bruce Browning designed the BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle). Thirty years later it is still the standard for semi-automatic centerfire hunting rifles.
This BAR Safari features select walnut stock and forearm and deep, high-luster blueing. It is a Non-Boss model and has open sights. It's extremely accurate with unmatched reliability. (Scope not included)

Action Type-Gas operated, autoloader with an extra strong multiple lug rotating bolt that locks directly into the barrel. Every cartridge that is loaded into the chamber of the BAR is surrounded by a recessed bolt face, which, in turn, is encircled by the barrel, which, in turn, is surrounded by the receiver. Three rings of steel surround the cartridge.
A seven-lug bolt and precise breech-to-chamber relationship give the BAR an exceptional degree of accuracy and the strength to handle magnum loads.
The strong and very rigid action bar/inertia block link-up improves accuracy by reducing barrel vibration. The buffering system reduces wear and stress on the rifle's mechanism.
