Need the following parts to restore a Bren Mk1 that we have in the museum collection.

Bipod
Butt
Pistol Grip
Cocking Handle

It looks at some point it was stripped down to machine pistol size and painted gold for a fancy dress party.

It has no internals and a gas axe has been through one side of the breech.

Many thanks for any help you may be able to offer

I will tag another wanted onto this - I am after the foresight protector for a Mark 1 bren and the screw to hold it in place if anyone has any ideas on where to get one can you let me know.

Thanks

Alistair

I know The Gunner does do bits for a Bren, but not to sure what parts, your best best is to look around at Beltring if youre going and youre bound to find the parts needed.

I will be back in the UK next week. I think I have the bits you want , with the exception of the bipod ( I'll check & see )
If you want to send me a private email with your contact info, I'll see what I can do
