These little known Breda made Brens were made in Italy from 1959 until the mid 1970’s for the Corpo Delle Guardie, a blanket term for paramilitary police, who are responsible for guarding all government infrastructure, bodyguards, strikes on the Mafia, and suppression of political radicals. They were only ever made in .30-06 Calibre but are marked 7.62 This is because the Italians use the metric system, and .30 calibre in metric is 7.62mm. Just slightly confusing! The Bren was a modified version of a Czechoslovak-designed light machine gun, the ZB Vz. 26, 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. NOTE:- The Gun will be delivered separately to the Transit box and the Mag box.
