BAR Question

I was wondering if a Browning BAR hunting rifle will take the old WWII BAR magazines, or are they incompatable?

    What part of a BAR constitutes the machine gun? Is it the receiver? Is it legal for us commoners to possess all other parts except the receiver? TIA for any input.

    The receiver is the firearm and would the only registered part. The other components are unrestricted. To build a semi, a new and purpose built semi-auto receiver must be obtained which cannot accept any of the selective fire component parts and must fire only from a closed bolt.

    This was a much simpler question than you had lead me to believe in your email.

    Sorry to mis-lead you Mark, I was going to ask you other questions. But since I am now putting this out in public, and since I have the other parts in my possession, I wanted to make sure I had no registered parts.

    HPD......... Ohio Ordnance makes a nice semi BAR all assembled, ready to shoot. Just something to consider. As Mark mentioned there is a lot to be considered when building your own. Mine has functioned flawlessly every time I have taken it out.

    LL, It's not for me, but for a fella I know. I have in my possession, what is supposed to be all the parts, except for the receiver, of a 1918 BAR. The guy wants me to sell it on GB, but I need to know if anything is missing, and an approximate value. I will start a new thread with pictures as soon as I can get them up on photobucket.
