    Default a run of brens

    after spending the last several months building rpd's we are now doing about 15 brens. we are starting on the first 7 receivers we welded up a while back. started machining the interiors and exteriors of the receivers the last few days.
    they are starting to look like guns, instead of greasy, rusty piles of junk!!

    Purchased a couple of these kits from MGS BRN1 BRNII. Next year I will hopefully have the time to complete the builds.

    It's nice to see these coming back to life.. They our a great weapon and have some great history.

    You fellows are doing great work on those Brens !!! The parts seem to be from early import rather than the nasty trashed ones currently available.

    Yes, these are not the kits currently available, the receivers are trashed on the newer ones. buildable kits can still be found for about $500.00

    back in the day, i was buying bren kits, they ( IO) had specials going when you bought other stuff. i ended up with 40+ kits. over the years i sold off most of them to buy other stuff ( more ak and fal kits). now i am down to 5 or 6 of them to build.
    i also bought 2 of the MGS kits for parts. ( you may need parts later, you can never have enough spare parts) they are getting low on them now.

    i have one built so far, shoots good.

    now i need to get the semi-parts to do the rest. ( i will get them from pirate.)

    good show pirate glad to see you back on them and maybe to finish up on your build instruction post you started ( LOL) so other may finish theres.

    now that we are getting caufght up and not puttin in 70 hours a week at the shop I can get back on the net and finish tutorials, and have some time to devote to finishing several projects that have been idle for a year. when we started we never expected the volume of work we got flooded with and how long it would take to mass produce guns that meet our standards for function and appearance.

    It has been one heck of a ride!!!
