Product Information

This Inglis made Bren MK2 dated 1944 was being built for the D-Day landing and the subsequent invasion of Nazi occupied Europe in June of that year. The Bren was used on all fronts during the war and was an excellent weapon and could be used in all types of conditions and is often over shadowed by the infamous German MG34 & MG42. Whilst the German's were over engineering and machining to very high tolerances, the British kept it simple. The 34 & 42 could fire more rounds per minute and were formidable weapons. But, this high level of fire came at a price, barrels would over heat, this meant it had to be well maintained. The Bren on the other hand could cope with sustain fired until barrels glowed red, had a far simpler action and was much more portable with an easy and quick box magazine for reloading. Well drilled soldiers were trained, and could strip Bren's with eyes closed. I rest my case!

This example has matching numbers to receiver, trigger assemble, (1944 dated) barrel and barrel release catch. The magazine is an Inglis manufactured.
