The Bren MKIII .303 Light Machine Gun was developed in 1943 for airborne operations and had a shorter, lighter barrel and had various bits of metal shaved off to make the whole thing more suitable for parachute drops. They were also very popular for jungle warfare in Malaya and Borneo in the various post war guerrilla conflicts. They were loved by the troops who used them as they rarely went wrong and withstood all conditions equally well. They were very accurate and because they could fire in semi auto, they were often used to pick off long range targets. It was such an effective design that in modified form, it served in the British armed forces until very recently. They can still be found in Africa and work perfectly well to this day. All deactivated weapons sold by D and B Militaria are deactivated in the United Kingdom and hold London or Birmingham proof marks and a certificate stating that the weapon has been deactivated correctly.
