Inspired by the original Browning automatic rifle, Browning's BAR Semiautomatic Rifle offers a time-honored approach with a checkered oil-finished Grade-II walnut stock paired with a satin-nickel-finished receiver and a hammer-forged polished blued barrel. Combines the toughness to handle hard-hitting magnum loads with the downrange accuracy you demand. Reliable piston-operated gas system softens felt recoil and reduces muzzle jump. Seven-lug rotary bolt locks onto the barrel. Durable action-bar/inertia block link-up reduces barrel vibration. Aircraft-grade aluminum-alloy receiver has high-relief engraving and is drilled and tapped for scope mounts. Crossbolt safety. Stock is shim-adjustable for cast on/off and drop at comb (includes six shims). Detachable box magazine with hinged floorplate for quick magazine changes. Also features installed sling swivel studs and interchangeable recoil pad.

I have not seen one on the website. The clip releases downward on a hinge. It is not that easy to just pull it off and insert another one. You would have to attach it to the hinge and swing it up. It's wouldn't be as quick as other designs. It does hold 4 in the clip and one in the chamber so I don't think you would need a quick change for most hunting scenarios.
