As these were made locally in Malaya during the 50's there is no set pattern,these however are machined from steel and have a phosphate finish.A Bren pistol grip is used with a Bren pistol grip bolt to secure it.The tolerances have been kept as tight as possible for a snug fit with minimum play.They are fitted to the gun using the forward mounting pin. (This is a quote from a freind of mine).
