Ohio Ordnance Works Model 1918A3 BAR Semi-Automatic Rifle
Introduced in 1996, the Ohio Ordnance 1918A3 uses a combination of a new-made receiver and GI-surplus components to make a semi-automatic closed bolt copy of the signature Browning Automatic Rifle. Blade front and folding ladder rear sights, hand adjustable gas port, unmarked barrel, 2-position safety, and left-side cocking knob. The top of the receiver bears the model and caliber markings, with the “CHARDON, OH” address over the patent and four-digit serial number. Smooth hardwood forearm and buttstock, swiveling carry handle, and a steel buttplate with flip-up shoulder rest.
