The Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) model 1918 was developed by John M. Browning in 1917. Marlin-Rockwell Corporation, Colt, and Winchester made 85,000 rifles during WWI to meet the US military requirement. Ohio Ordnance Works, Inc. manufactures a semi-automatic version of this rifle; 1918 (pre-WWII version). The only one of its kind in production anywhere in the world, it is manufactured with some of the original USGI WWI and WWII parts. For the last 18 years, we have taken great care in building of each rifle. Only the highest quality Ohio Ordnance original and USGI standard parts are used in its production. The heart of the 1918 is the receiver made from 8620 steel casting that has been carburized and induction heat treated. The castings are machined on state-of-the-art, CNC machining centers. Every rifle is fully assembled, inspected, test-fired and re-inspected under the direct supervision of our master armorer.
