Re: Browning 308
It is not a Browning BAR Short Trac. That is a current model with the 'Euro' styling that, to me anyway, makes the gun look Euro-trashy.
Your gun is a Browning BAR chambered for .308 Winchester, made in 1969 at the Fabrique Nationale plant in Belgium.
1969 is early 'salt-wood' era for the BAR. I would suggest removing the buttplate screws and checking to see if they have rusted. If they have, you may have some unpleasant surprises if you remove the stock and forend.
