Deactivated Cutaway Bren MKIM LMG SN. 2614 -
Deactivated Cutaway Bren MKI .303 Light Machine Gun. Matching numbers 1942 Inglis production in very good deactivated condition, with full working action. The Bren was a modified version of a Czechoslovak-designed light machine gun, the ZB Vz26, which British Army officials had tested during a firearms service competition in the 1930s. 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.
