Ow much would a brand new never been fired BAR go to on today's market
As a fully transferable non-reactivated non-remilled all original with all its accessories papers etc prolly 25-30k$ if you are patient and find the right collector. Just my guess as a nonexpert.
You will have to define BAR. There is the military light machine gun from WW 1, which, IF papered with the ATF, and transferable, will be worth somewhere North of $15,000, depending on condition.
If it has NOT already been papered by May 1986, it cannot BE papered, and is worth 10 years in a Federal prison, and a $10K fine.
If you mean the civilian sporting rifle made by Browning, will depend on which grade and caliber. Anywhere from $450 to $3500.
Military issue never been fired fully transferable with all the paperwork and accessories yadayadayada browning automatic rifle
Do you have a line on one or looking to buy one or what??
The reason i ask is that there are a lot of Military style ww2 type BAR out there that have been put together with kits from blank recievers that were registered pre86 that people pass off as if they are original war issue.
When buying any item that gets most of its value as a historical item you need to find a real historical expert to evaluate it.
NFA BARs typically run about 5-12k depending on condition. What your talking about is a premium modifier to value and that is where fraud comes into play with realistic forgeries.
The nfa game is ripe with scammers who doctor up registered recievers and pass them off as historical collectables when its actually just a very well restored shootable.
I don't have one I'm looking into just wondering what would top dollar be on a mint ww2 bar
IF, and that is a REALLY BIG IF, you can find a mint, transferrable BAR that was, in fact, once in the US military arsenal, you have found a real gem. Price? Easily $25K.
All the caveats above apply. I seriously doubt such a weapon exists.
Thank you point made
Chances of finding that in that condition is about equal to finding a 1968 Z 28 Camaro with less than 50 miles on the odometer that has been in inert atmosphere storage. Or being hit by a meteorite- while being stuck by lightning- as you are being told you won the lottery.
But hey- it could happen, right?
