Description
In 1917 America joined the First World War, desperately searching for a high-quality firearm to issue to their troops. Luckily for them, the greatest gun manufacturing pioneer in history, John Browning, had just created two new guns. One of these was the Browning Automatic Rifle, which he demonstrated with great success in Washington. The 300-strong crowd agreed that the weapon was excellent, and it was soon chosen to be distributed among American troops. The rushed production naturally resulted in some problems with the first set of guns, but these were soon sorted out. The M1918 BAR was used by Americans until the 1960s, and it also saw service during the Second World War with the British Home Guard. The great 30-06 bullet was part of Browning's original plans for the gun - find out more about the 30-06 following the link.
