Got wood? The BAR MK 3 is a multipurpose 308 Winchester semi-automatic rifle with an 18″ fluted barrel and oil finish Grade II Turkish walnut stock. This MK 3 sports a detachable box magazine, lightweight alloy receiver with Picatinny rail scope bases, and a proven reliable gas piston system.
Browning rifles consistently produce the most accurate shot groups in their class. This is due in large part to the quality of their barrels. The BAR is built around a hammer-forged barrel made in a thoroughly controlled and tested process.
The BAR relies on a gas piston design to operate its lightweight action. The gas piston design mitigates shooter-perceived recoil and reduces excessive carbon residue that other modern gas-impingement designs vent into the moving parts of the action. Like most modern sporting rifles, the BAR utilizes a multi-lug rotary bolt – a component that allows for a lightweight alloy receiver.
The BAR MK 3 feels and handles like the purpose-built hunting rifle it is – lightweight, quick to shoulder and point. Add in the benefits of a well-designed semi-automatic, and you get quick follow-up shots and less perceived recoil than with your standard bolt-action hunting rifles.
