Hi All,

I have a Bren gun Mk 1 sustained fire/AA tripod and could do with some help dating it. All I can find stamped on it is a serial number R152.

Any ideas?

Also, does anyone know how much these things are going for these days?

Thanks, Jon

No two-number date on AA leg socket flat(eg '40 for 1940) ?

Any sign of 2 holes drilled on one long side of the triangular frame? would indicate previous fitting of the pair of clips that would hold the butthandle when Bren mounted on the tripod?

How much...too much ;(
(unless you have at least one ;) )

R152 isnt a serial number. Look for details on the head, the section where the AA leg fits, there will be a manufacturer like BSA, CCM or A.G.E. and a 2 number date code. If you cant find a date then a correct serial number would help me date it for you.

This photo will help you locate the area.
