 The rifle has a blued finish on the receiver, barrel and operating rod assembly or group with a parkerized finish on the complete trigger group, the rear sight protectors, the hinged buttplate and the additional plate on the underside of
the buttstock for the monopod. It is fitted with the later 1919 style rear sight that is graduated from 200-1,500 yards and is fully adjustable
for windage and elevation with a blade front sight. The BAR was a civilian model. There were no military BARs in World War I, they were
all civilian and converted to military use. The civilian forearm was checkered, the military plain. The stock and forearm are both walnut and the forearm has a fine checkered pattern on both sides. It is complete with an original bipod and the rear monopod.
CONDITION: Very fine, retains 90% arsenal refurbished blue finish with some minor edge wear, a few minor scratches, scattered areas of light surface freckling, and a hint of thinning on top of the barrel behind the rear sight. The wood is also very fine with a few handling marks. Mechanically excellent. A desirable example of a British proofed Marlin-Rockwell BAR!
