View Full Version : Belt fed bren
05-01-2006, 02:21 AM
Would it be possible to adapt a MG42 topcover and tray to a bren I have seen the historic arms conversion with a 240 topcover and it looked sweet. I would assume the 42 cover would be doable since it is a push feed belt.
I have 3 brens in the pipline so Im very interested in the idea.

probably could be made to work, the 42 cover is alot wider than the m240, and of course would need to be rimless cartridge like 308 or 8mm.
here is the link fot those that havent seen the beltfed bren pic
there is a thread with more pics but I didnt see it right off
