    This room is attached to the late actors name because he was a firearm enthusiast and former presedent of the NRA. I understand that he did collect them as well but i'm not too sure that this was his personal collection.

    The BAR was a hinderance for the US army in WW2 -too heavy for an auto rifle and too light for a light machine gun-its always amazed me that they never adopted a Bren/ZB26 variant before or during the war-certainly the Germans were well provided with automatic weapons although the Japs were generally at a disadvantage vs troops equiped with Garands-an impressive collection in the pics never the less.

    Hey lithgow the army barely fought against the Japanese and if a man or a soldier had a newer BAR with a bipod that would make it a steady way to put down suprressing fire while the light mg crews were behind the front lines. The BAR was much,much lighter than any light mg in the US's arsenal so it could be transported more easily by troops

    Hello-the US army was heavily engaged against the Japanese throughout the Far East/Pacific campaign-the US forces in general were well equiped in most categories of small arms except LMGs-the only one to see service on any scale was a version of the M1919 .30 cal medium MG with a bipod and shoulder butt stock-heavy & awkward to carry & use. My point was that if the US had a decent LMG it would have reduced their casualties & increased the enemies losses making the eventual victory easier & maybe a little quicker.

    I suggest that you study a little history and not rely on Hollywood as a historical resource. The US Army's contribution in the Asian-Pacific Theatre was far greater than that of the US Marine Corps.
