    It has been one heck of a ride!!!

    here are a few more photos, after fitting up all the parts & test firing they go to the grinding bench for a face lift.

    then it is off to the refinishing dept for blasting and a fresh coat of parkerizing.

    Boy, you guys sure make it looks easy. Excellent !!

    BTW - it looks like you're no longer using 308L as a filler based on how the park job turned out. What are you using for a filler rod ??


    Did I do that?

    on the brens I use plain steel tig rod. I use the 308 on the 34 receivers because they are malaeable iron.

    the welds on the bren are visable, but you have to look hard.

    That's the only problem with doing it yourself.......you know where every small flaw is. They sure do look excellent to me.

    BTW - thanks for the info !!

    Isn't .303 ammo getting as rare as hens teeth these days? Seems like I haven't seen anything in the past few years.

    Yes, .303 Brit ammo is scarce. That's why I plan to rechamber my barrels to 7.62x54R Russian and use my Hungarian 8mmR ZB mags. Those mags have less curve to them and seem to feed several calibers well.
