You can go to Brownells website, click on schematics, click on the Browning icon and it should show The BAR as an option. Note: I have no personnel experience with the BAR but be careful. They can be a bear to disassemble and reassemble. Very difficult.

If I were you I would take it to a Browning service center, BARs are a pain.

Ok, but the real original BAR is more fun. This help at all? Stevespage seems to be down. http://www.bowtools.com/Articles/Gun...short_trac.pdf
Or this one.

I must have an older BAR

Mine does not have two pins holding in the trigger group. This one is close to 40 years old.
I grew up in AK and my father shot a moose almost every year with this 7mm Remington Magnum Belgian BAR. I have inherited it and a 30-06 version of the same rifle.
I have the pdf files from browning but none of them seem to have the model that I do.
I can get it fairly clean but I can not figure out how to get the bolt out. I know it will seem really obvious when someone tells me how to do it.

Thank you in advance for your help.
