For auction: BREN MK III Light Machine Gun .303 British. This rifle is completely authentic and original. It comes with the original bipod. The rifle was made in 1955 and has a rich history. The caliber of this rifle is .303 British. A very nice item for your collection.

The Bren gun was a licensed version of the Czechoslovak ZGB 33 light machine gun which, in turn, was a modified version of the ZB vz. 26, which British Army officials had tested during a firearms service competition in the 1930s. The later Bren gun featured a distinctive top-mounted curved box magazine, conical flash hider, and quick change barrel. The name Bren was derived from Brno, the Czechoslovak city in Moravia, where the Zb vz. 26 was designed (in the Zbrojovka Brno Factory) and Enfield, site of the British Royal Small Arms Factory.
