In response to the US's urgent need of a standardized automatic weapon towards the end of the first World War, John Browning introduced two types of automatic weapons to Congress for consideration; one of which was the single infantry operated, shoulder fired Browning Automatic Rifle also known as the BAR. The new select fire, air-cooled, long stroke piston operated weapon was so impressive that it was unanimously recommended for immediate adoption into service. Even though the weapon saw limited use in WWI due its late introduction, the battles it participated in were heavily impacted by the presence of this man portable light machine gun. Despite its low ammunition capacity, its mobility and ability to be operated by a single infantryman made it a force multiplier on the battlefield. The results were so impressive, other Allied nations requested for immediate adoption of the BAR. Throughout its service life, the BAR saw action in WW2, Korean War, and even into Vietnam before it was replaced by the M60 Machine Gun. During this time the weapon was used by various nations such as Belgium, Poland, and Sweden as well as being adopted by law enforcement for its awesome unrivaled firepower.

"This gun is great! I strongly recommend buying it. Make sure you have the right frame and size though or you will regret it, this thing is HUGE!!!
VERY realistic to it's reel steel model
shoots very nicely on a 9.6 3800 mah battery
Packaging protects the barrel from bipod scratches and other external damage
a little slow FPS wise: somewhere between an m4 and SAW with .20
stock is a bit wobbly but there are fixes
carry handle scratches barrel: but it's fine if you don't take it off, it's REALLY helpful
MAGAZINE SIZE!!! they're tiny!! get at least three! they go sooooo fast
Last thing but not a big deal, this gun does NOT come with a manual so make sure you watch up on youtube so you know what you're getting into. If you aren't a noob this shouldn't be a big deal, I just pulled it out of the box and shot it.
All in all, this gun is awesome! Please buy it! we need more BARs on the field!
"While I do not own this rifle I have used it for a day and let me tell you, it's a beast of a gun. Now this gun is very much like the real steel down to the trades which are very nice. This gun is very accurate and the hop up is both easy to adjust and amazing. With .25s this will easily hit targets about 150-170ft away easily anything much farther and you may have to lob them a bit. The mags hold 190rds yes but they are very inexpensive coming in at about $20 which honestly isn't bad. Now with all these positive things there come negatives too. This gun is very heavy due to the metal parts being steel. The wood is polymer but feels nice. Now I get into the pros and cons.
Amazing range and accuracy
Metal parts are metal
Amazing hop up and gear box
Has semi auto as well so if you wanna take it into CQB and lower the spring you can
Heavy (could be a pro)
With a 9.6 there are really bad feeding issues use a 8.4
For the rifle your getting at the price it is it's well worth the money. A good more budget friendly option is the Matrix one that I plan on getting but definetly get this if you have the money
"Not happy at all.
1st of all: SECOND time out with my gun the front muzzle came off because the set screws holding it in place came loose from the weight of the bipod being on it and its impossible for me to get access and screw them back on once the muzzle is placed back on.
Second: i bought 2 extra mags with this gun NONE work, not even the one that came with the gun, the spring jams up and doesnt feed, im using a 9.6v (which i know can make it skip shots.... But every shot?...) i use controlled bursts or single shots.
Third: the bipod was complete and udder trash to begin with.
There are some pros however.
When my gun was in one piece its weight was very real and the gun fired accurately (whenever it would ACTUALLY fire)
You feel like a total bad*** with it.
