1918 A3-SLR Browning .30-06 Semi-Auto Self Loading Rifle 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 requirements. Ohio Ordnance Works manufactures a semi-automatic version of this original rifle -- 1918A3 (WWII version) -- the only one of its kind in production anywhere in the world, and it's manufactured with some of the original USGI WWI and WWII parts. For the past 15 years, Ohio Ordnance Works (OOW) has taken great care in building each 1918 A3-SLR rifle. Only the highest quality and USGI standard parts are used in the production of this firearm. The heart of the 1918A3 is the receiver made from an 8620 steel casting that has been carbonized 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 their master armorer.
