    I've had one for two years now and love it. Absolutly cool gun to own. There are very well made and function very well. Service from Ohio Ordnance is great. One of the legs on my Bipod would not tighten and stay up (this is a GI Bipod) and Ohio Ordnance told me to send it to them and they sent a new one right away.

    The gun is very accurate and fun to shoot.

    When you go to the range with it, you will find that everyone will come over to watch.

    I'm a WWII gun collector and this was the only way I could afford to get a BAR as the full auto ones cost over $15K.

    It will be money well spent if you are in to WWII weapons.

    Oddly enough, a downwardly-plunging firey handbask
    Didnt the original BAR's have a pistol grip? :confused:

    A California legal WWII rifle! If I only had some money I would love to have one of those for the collection. I would like to have a Thompson too, but it has the evil pistol grip.

    Aren't most WWII rifles legal in CA? Or, do the bayonet lugs tend to make them illegal? Or is that just for semi-auto rifles, like the Garand?

    Well lets see, the bayonet lug suprisingly is not on the SB23 PRK AWB. So the M1 Carbine, M1 Garand, and this 1918A3 is not. However, I still can't get a Thompson. Who can have a collection without a Thompson? I guess me.

    Actually. doesn't the PRK ban exempt rifles that don't have a detachable magazine, which is why the AB-10 rifle is legal?

    Which would make the Garand legal even if it had the full slew of banned features, right?

    Not that I'd want to fire a Garand with a collapsible stock, mind you.

    Colt's "Monitor" variation of the BAR had a pistol grip of sorts. Due to the curve of the receiver in that area, it only need a short little stub of a grip.

    There is not a bayonet lug on a BAR.

    Yeah, trying to bayonet someone with a 20 pound light machine gun is kind of silly.

    Yep, as silly as it may seem, the Japanese could mount bayonets on their LMGs.

    Even my UZI has a bayonet lug but with the 16 inch barrel I need about a 18 inch bayonet.:D
