Elk NetworkGear 101 – BAR Hell’s Canyon Speed Mark III

Gear 101 | August 8, 2019

If you’ve ever shot a B A R, then you’ve held a piece of American history.

Near the end of World War I, John Browning designed the B A R M 19-18, which was commissioned by the U.S. Army to break the trench warfare stalemate.

Its official U.S. military use began in 1918 and continued until Vietnam.

Now, the B A R Mark 3 Hell’s Canyon Speed is the third generation of this iconic rifle, and it comes with some serious upgrades.

The Cerakote Burnt Bronze finish resists the elements and protects better than traditional bluing or stainless steel.

A-TACS A-U Camo adorns the composite stock while the Inflex recoil pad helps soften the blow from larger calibers.

Cartridges are fed from a detachable box magazine that attaches to the hinged floor plate.

Available in nine calibers ranging from .243 to .300 Win Mag, this autoloader is perfect for the elk woods of Pennsylvania to the lodgepole thickets of Colorado. On top of that, it’s pretty darn fun to shoot.
