Ever seen a Colt Monitor BAR Rifle in action?

Ian from Forgotten Weapons got a chance to share one with us in the video below.

The Colt Monitor BAR Rifle is both rare and extremely impressive. Also called the R80, distributors marketed these firearms to police departments and ultimately the FBI.

Many improvements came along to make this a more user-friendly weapon. Ian explains the history of great historical weapon, and the changes it underwent over time.

Here’s a special thanks to Ian from Forgotten Weapons for keeping these vintage weapons from fading.
